Studio 5 Mardra & Reggie Thomas w/ Friends
December 3, 2021
We're back in person at Studio5! It's our first jazz performance and recording in front of a live audience since March 6, 2020! For this very special occasion, we are honored to welcome the incomparable Mardra & Reggie Thomas to our stage. Our regulars will remember Reggie from his previous exciting performances at Studio5. An evening spent with this masterful pianist is like a tour through the history of jazz. His wife, Mardra, is a beautifully deep singer who “has the impeccable phrasing of Nancy Wilson, and also the sharp tang reminiscent of Eartha Kitt.” (Mike Stratton, WLNZ Radio). Fans of our online production, Into the Mist will also know Reggie and Mardra as the couple holding a swinging rent party in Apartment 12C. Mardra and Reggie will be joined by Dennis Carroll (bass) and George Fludas (drums) in what promises to be a most joyful re-opening of our cozy venue. I'm smiling already. –SR
