Tune It! Tuesday with Phat Man Dee!

On the 3rd Tuesday of every month join Phat Man Dee and Friends at Black Forge Coffee Shop in Allentown, Pittsburgh for a cross genre inter generational jam session!

All ages, $3 cover unless you are coming to sit in!

This particular Tune It! falls on both Phat Tuesday and during Phat Man Dee's birthday week! Come play with us, jame some tunes and have a celebration!

Every Third Tuesday for the past year, Phat Man Dee has hosted a community oriented, intergenerational, musical jam session. It is for all ages, and the house band features world class jazz musicians with the ability to back up singers, instrumentalists, poets, and spoken word artists of all genres. This month’s jam session features Phat Man Dee as host, with musicians Eric Dowdell Jr. (bass), Carlos Peña (guitar) and Miguel Sague III (conga). Community members have been attending and jamming with professional musicians, performing original compositions, experimental works, poetry, hip hop, jazz standards and cover songs for one year now.

With the promise of continued support of a Love My Neighbor grant from Neighborhood Allies, additional support from Brian Drusky and Drusky Entertainment, Copies At Carson, Inc., and the Black Forge Coffee House, Mandee has been honored to help amplify the voices of new performers, seasoned professionals and artists looking to explore new work. The first set features Mandee as she sings with the musicians, and after the first set, she invites the artists in the audience to come up and do 2 or 3 selections of their choosing. Many of her neighbors have performed, as well as Mandee’s students from the Afro American Music Institute and the We Rock Workshop, and professional collaborators from her many projects have joined in the fun as well. This is an open minded, all inclusive, judgement free zone, designed to encourage artists and praise them to confidence and success.

Ethnic Heritage Ensemble at First Unitarian Church

$25 adv/$30 door all ages welcome

tickets on sale: Juke Records (Bloomfield), Jerry's Records (Squirrel Hill), Dave's Music Mine (South Side), and Caliban Books (Oakland).
Concert info line: aestheticparlour@gmail.com

Celebrate the 46th anniversary of Chicago's Ethnic Heritage Ensemble! Kahil El'Zabar led its first performance at Child City Arts Center in Chicago in 1973, one year after he had returned from his studies at the University of Ghana. His goal was to combine concepts of African American music making with the earlier roots of traditional African music and make something new. After 46 years, this legendary band is still serving the people worldwide with their special brand of 21st century Griot music. The current band consists of the young trumpet titan Corey Wilkes, along with Detroit baritone saxophone legend Alex Harding, and the award winning multi-percussionist, vocalist, and composer, Kahil El'Zabar.

The EHE is now in the pantheon of jazz history. Few bands have lasted more than four decades and there are no signs of this illustrious ensemble slowing down. Their music conjures a spiritual journey to the inner self. It spans time through multiple expressions that transcend styles and genres. There is an extremely personal virtuosity to the EHE's way of making music. It appears simple on the surface, yet when one goes deeper in the music they are amazed at the density of form.
