The Evolution of the Groove
A one-night-only musical spectacle you will not want to miss. Upstairs in Althea's Lounge
Kevin Ashley, pianist and bandleader of the USMC Jazz Combo, has recently returned from dates in Paris and Los Angeles and has assembled his East Coast All Star band for a truly unique evening of musical alchemy.
Gathering talent from half a dozen local and regional bands, the East Coast All Stars have never before taken the stage as a complete unit. Watch as musical acquaintances become family over the course of the evening. Featuring vocal performances by Alex Preston (American Idol) and Abbi Sleeper (Scoobs, J Street), with Chris Noyes on bass, Isaac Temple on drums, Ian Sleeper and Jarrod Taylor on guitar, and Andy Emmanuel on saxophone, this supergroup will take you on a tour of funk, soul, and jazz in three acts, with repertoire from Miles Davis to Stevie Wonder and Lake Street Dive.
