New Orleans is a drummer’s town. But in this town full of first class drummers, Herlin Riley is “the” drummer. The Baron of the Boom Boom. The Pulse that keeps the life flowing through any body of work.
Born into a musical family steeped in gospel, blues and jazz, Herlin was asked by Wynton Marsalis to join him in New York in 1988 where Herlin stayed for almost two decades, all the while still maintaining a home in New Orleans. He still is a regularly featured musician with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, but now is back in his hometown when he’s not on tour with Ahmad Jamal, Dr. John, or Harry Connick, Jr. He lights up any stage with just his presence alone, and always fires up the first class musicians who love to play with him.
Tonight, he presents his Quartet, featuring:
Herlin Riley – drums, percussion, vocals
Max Moran – bass
Oscar Rossignoli – piano
Derek Douget – saxophones
Shows at 8pm & 10pm.
Doors at 7:00pm & 9:30pm.
