Snug Harbor presents
Tuesday December 26th, 2023 9:30pm (Doors: 9:00pm)
“Mars” was the name given to the band created by renowned New Orleans guitarist, composer, educator and inventor Steve Masakowski in 1981. The original band consisted of Steve on 7-string guitar and keytar, Larry Sieberth on keyboards, James Singleton on bass, and James Black on drums.

The band focused on original music influenced by the early evolving electronic instruments and composers of the day. An LP simply entitled “Mars” was recorded and released in 1982 and featured other prominent jazz musicians that Steve was collaborating with, including Dave Liebman on sax, Ricky Sebastian on drums, Patrice Fisher on harp, and Kent Jordan on flute. During the 1980s, the band would frequently present concerts with visual artist John Graubarth.

Tonight, four of the band's original members reunite for one night only for "Return to Mars," featuring some of the music performed by the original group with Ricky Sebastian substituting for the late James Black on drums.
