      EVENT DETAILS
      Art Blakey Centennial - Messenger Legacy

      A reunion and tribute to a true jazz icon. Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers was a quintessential band for nearly 40 years, with a constant influx of only the best young musicians. Now, multiple generations of the group's elite alumni come together to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Blakey's birth and the legacy he created by providing a life-changing apprenticeship for over 200 jazz musicians.

       

      With band members Bobby Watson, Essiet Essiet, Geoffrey Keezer, Brian Lynch and Bill Pierce, this top-notch ensemble is led by Ralph Peterson, the only drummer ever to play in the band alongside the drum maestro himself.

      Cost: 29.00
