Messenger Legacy

Saturday, March 21, 2020 (CANCELED due to COVID 19)

Led by drummer Ralph Peterson, Messenger Legacy is an elite line-up of alumni members from influential bandleader Art Blakey’s famed Jazz Messengers. “Having multiple generations of Messengers represented in this band, this is the closest you can get to the source,” says Peterson. As Art Blakey himself said of jazz, “To pass through life and miss this music is to miss out on one of the best things about living.” Don’t miss out!
