Festival of Music 3 will lead off with an appearance by Marty Eigen’s new quartet Amani, which means “peace” in Swahili. The group was formed to share the concept of peace
through music, performing for people of all ages, races and religious affiliations. The core group includes veteran musicians Marty Eigen on saxophone and flute, Fred Fischer on keyboards, vocalist Stephen Fuller and guitarist Flip Peters.
Returning to the concert stage will be Rio Clemente (“The Bishop of Jazz”); Carrie Jackson (“The Divine Jazz Diva”); Rob Paparozzi, lead singer with The Blues Brothers Band and Blood Sweat and Tears; Gene Perla, formerly with Sonny Rollins, Sara Vaughan and Nina Simone; and Gordon Lane, formerly with Percy Sledge, Joe Tex and ZZ Hill. The show will again be hosted by Marty Eigen, leader of the Beacon Hill Jazz Band.
