Nashville Jazz Workshop says
Join us for a special Saturday edition of Snap on 2&4 with the incredible drummer and composer Marcus Finnie and his band!

A Memphis native, Marcus Finnie began playing drums at church accompanying his mother on organ. From grade school to high school, Marcus began studying classical and jazz music. While playing at Olivet Baptist Church in Memphis, TN, Marcus was told by Grammy-winning saxophonist Kirk Whalum that "if you keep practicing and learn to read music, you will play with me someday." Ten years later during his college days at Middle Tennessee State University, Marcus was invited to record with Kirk Whalum on his album "Into My Soul."

Since then, while living in Nashville, Marcus has performed with Kirk Whalum, Larry Carlton, Donna Summer, India Arie, Billy Preston, Tamir Hendleman, Monte Montgomery, Larry Goldings, Steve Green, Aaron Neville, and CeCe Winans. Marcus has also recorded with Grammy and Stellar Award nominated and winning artists Michael McDonald, Smokie Norful, Donnie McClurkin, American Idols' Ace Young, Rodney Crowell, Vickie Winans, Rachel Lampa, Adam Nitti, Bryan Bellar, and several others. In 2010, he released an incredible debut CD as a leader entitled Boundless.

Joining Marcus for this event will be a stellar band, including Doug Mosher (saxophone), Jason Webb (piano), James DaSilva (guitar), and Brian Allen (bass).

The show will consist of 2 sets, beginning at 8pm. Doors open at 7:15.

Admission is $20 / $10 high school and college students with ID. Tickets will go on sale Monday, February 8 at 10AM and will be available online on this page or by phone 24/7 at Brown Paper Tickets (800-838-3006) or during business hours at the NJW office (242-5299).
