Thanks to the fabulous head librarian at the South End Library, Anne Smart, who's always willing to find a solution, tonight's concert with the outstanding drummer group, Zeke Martin and The Oracle, will take place as planned, regardless of the weather's whims. The only question is: outdoors (weather permitting) or indoors (weather NOT permitting), which means inside the South End branch, on the first floor. Saxophonist Pat Loomis, whose band kicked off the jazz and blues series two weeks ago, will MC the event tonight, Tuesday, July 23rd at 6:30 PM.
The son of American jazz drummer Stu Martin, Zeke claims he was born with drumsticks in his hands. He further developed his technique in theJazz & Percussion Ensembles and Band when he attended Cambridge Rindge & Latin High School. He received the Pasquale and Mary Reale Music Award and performed the percussion solo at the CRLS Graduation. His band, The Zeke Martin Project, won Best Jazz CD at New England Urban Music Awards in 2009. Zeke coaches drumming and teaches at Music and Arts Center in Newton and Milford, and at Northeastern University.
