The Saskia Laroo Band, Jazz meets Hip-Hop, Fri., 10/2, 7 p.m.; $40/vehicle
Coined in America as “Lady Miles Davis of Europe,” Saskia Laroo is a current feature on the face of 21st century trumpet artistry. Born in Amsterdam, she travels the world playing a combination of jazz, pop, world and dance with her band, often an international bunch well-versed in many styles. “I want people to have a good time, to dance when I play. I don’t just play for other musicians,” she says. Thus, her joy comes to life with this group: some tradition, lots of hipness, groove, ba-ad solos, bold rap vocals, and her mellifluous trumpet leading the way. The Saskia Laroo Band brings an organic mix of pure jazz and funky hip-hop. The performance will feature Saskia on trumpet, vocals, and alto sax, Warren Byrd on keyboard and vocals, PremeAlom on rap vocals and vocals, Tang Sauce on rap vocals, Douglas ‘Basszilla’ Long on electric bass, and Dexter Pettaway on drums. Audiences all ages and backgrounds welcome!
