THE MUSIC OF STEPS AHEAD Featuring MIKE MAINIERI
Jun 12 @ 19:30 – 22:15

Mike_MainieriMichael Mainieri is an award-winning jazz vibraphonist and composer, best known for his work with Steps Ahead, the incredible jazz/fusion group widely admired for its ambitious music.

In the 1980’s, advances in music technology took jazz in new directions, and Mainieri was among the first to grasp its potential by synthesising electronic sounds with the organic cool of the vibraphone to create something entirely fresh and new.

Mainieri has taken the vibraphone beyond its limits in a long and colourful jazz career that includes performances with Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Zappa and Joe Lovano. His primary focus however, continues with Steps Ahead, and this vibrant concert series with the SNJO sees the opening of a new and exciting chapter.

Sandi Thom
Jun 16 @ 19:30 – 22:15

_A2C0392_edSandi Thom was the first singer/songwriter ever to gain global stardom and a major label record deal through the use of webcasting. There may have been a backlash – it happens when anyone does anything ground-breaking – but there’s no getting away from the fact that she was the first pioneer of what was a huge turning point in the music industry.

But it’s a long way from that global smash – ‘I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker (With Flowers in My Hair)’ launched from webcasts in a London basement – to where proud Scot Sandi Thom finds herself today with an amazing, eclectic, highly credible body of work behind her… and an amazing new album ahead.

She has recorded in Nashville and LA, has worked with top producers and songwriters, has written for important media outlets like The Daily Beast, has graced the stage of the legendary Royal Albert Hall, has played at Glastonbury, has performed on stage with Brian May, Alice Cooper and George Michael and is now embarking on a brand new groundbreaking chapter in her career as she produces her new album ‘Weapons of Past Destruction”
