Mario Abney & the Abney Effect (June 12)

Mario Abney is a jazz trumpeter, composer and bandleader from New Orleans. He has been a guest artist to both George Benson and Cyril Neville at the New Orleans Jazz Festival and has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Erykah Badu, Wynton Marsalis, Donald Harrison and Nicholas Payton. But he developed his chops in his hometown, Chicago, at Fred Anderson's legendary Velvet Lounge. Mario’s talents have been compared to the genius of Miles Davis and the leadership and insight of Art Blakely.

Tickets are $20 and we will share that link for you to purchase.
