Live Jazz, 4 April, Pietermaritzburg

March 16, 2010

Tired of listening to Hannah Montana? Join us for some real music, in our first Abound-hosted event: Live Jazz with the Bruce Baker Quartet. On the 4th of April, the Bruce Baker Quartet, featuring Melvin Peters on piano, Debbie Mari on vocals, Logan Byrne on double bass and Bruce Baker on drums, will be making sweet music, on the campus of UKZN, Pietermaritzburg.

Peters, who has been performing as a jazz pianist since the early 80’s, has shared the stage with many of South Africa’s jazz legends. Mari has featured as a vocalist on a number of albums, including George Mari’s, My Mecca and Darius Brubeck’s, Before It’s Too Late.  Byrne has free-lanced as a double-bass player for a number of musical groups, including the Durban City Orchestra. And Baker, who grew up in Pietermaritzburg, free-lances as a jazz drummer in Durban, whilst lecturing at UKZN School of Jazz. He has performed alongside jazz stars Feya Faku, Winston Makuku, Darius Brubeck and many others.

It is guaranteed to be top class entertainment.

The venue is A1 of the New Arts Block on the UKZN campus. Park in the Hexagon Theatre car-park and follow the signs to A1. To book tickets contact Sam on 0832579059 or (033) 3868009. Refreshments will be sold during the interval.
