A Tribute to Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers with Bill Pierce & John Ramsay

Art Blakey


Arlington Town Hall 1666555934

(617) 909-7776



November 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EST



Arlington Jazz presents an evening of classic jazz featuring the music of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. Metro Boston is fortunate enough to have two Blakey alums who consider this area their home base; both local Messengers, Bill Pierce (sax) and John Ramsay (drums), were involved during parts of the celebrated “Messengers Rejuvenation” period, which encompassed the years 1976–90.

For this concert, Pierce and Ramsay will be accompanied by Greg Hopkins (trumpet), Dan Fox (trombone), Consuelo Candelaria (piano), and Greg Ryan (bass). Arlington High School Jazz Band, led by Tino D’Agostino, opens.
