Mekhi Boone & Tim Brey
Thursday, March 21, 2019 6:30pm
Bassist Mike Boone's amazing jazz story spans several decades and an untold number of artists. After attending the finest schools of music, touring with legendary performers like Buddy Rich and Ben Vereen, and recording with many more, he settled into the Philadelphia jazz scene. Here, he plays with luminaries such as saxophonist Tony Williams, pianist Trudy Pitts and WCU's John Swana. Among the most sought after musicians from Philly to NYC, he also teaches at Temple University and frequently tours with Ben Vereen and Jazz Organist, Joey DeFrancesco.
John Swana played at Uptown! last Spring and completely blew us away with his EVI, the Electronic Valve Instrument. If you were not among the fortunate few in attendance that evening, do not miss your chance this time!
Mekhi Boone, drummer, has played with the likes of Stevie Wonder and Janet Jackson, not to mention his father, Mike Boone. His ability to keep the beat with seasoned professionals is truly phenomenal!
Tim Brey, pianist, composer, educator will complete the foursome. He is in demand locally and internationally, performing the Great American Songbook and more jazz traditions with Mike Boone, Terell Stafford, John Swana, Branford Marsalis, Wycliffe Gordon, Karrin Allyson, and many more.
