Darren Sterud has been an active, young, freelance trombonist in Wisconsin and Minnesota since 2001. While still in high school Darren began playing and touring with Mama Digdown’s Brass Band, a popular New Orleans style group from Madison.

He went on to study music performance with Maynard alum, Steve Wiest at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. A gifted student, Darren played in the university Jazz Symposium, Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra and Chamber Winds. He also started his own band at college, The New Tradition Brass Band.

Darren has played with other active musical groups in Madison including the Tony Castaneda Latin Jazz Band, Grupo Candela, The Jimmys and the Clyde Stubblefield Blues Band. In 2010 he was invited to perform in the Madison Mellophonium Jazz Orchestra directed by Stan Kenton alumni, Joel Kaye. He has taken the stage with several Twin Cities bands such as the Jack Brass Band, Southside Aces, Seven Steps to Havana and Charanga Tropical. Darren is always ready for a last-minute gig or an open jam session where his joy in performance shows through.

Darren has had the opportunity to share the stage with such groups as B.B.

With his recent ventures on the road, Darren had to put teaching on hold but now hopes to return to education. Darren is available for private lessons, band camps and clinics where he can share his passion for music and performance with students.


Cafe CODA has been preparing for our new ‘Live Streaming Initiative’. On 4/5, our pilot streaming concert was very well received. This weekend, we’ll be streaming more wonderful performances from local and regional artists. In response to the recent virus, we are taking very high measures to ensure that everyone involved in the live streaming process is working in a safe environment. We will provide masks (if requested), sanitize all high-touched surfaces with disinfecting wipes, and most importantly, maintain at least 6 feet away from each other.

We hope you’ll be able to join us from the comfort of your home. Please spread the words so more people can join in. Kindly share this email or our posts from FB, Instagram and Twitter. Our goal is to reach a global audience. In these times, why not?

Please help us spread the love and freedom of Jazz and put our beloved musicians on the map around the world!

Donations for these concerts will be graciously accepted through the following links.
