Drummer Webb Thomas’ Philadelphia roots extend deep and have helped establish him as one of the most prominent drummers in the area. Webb and his project, Webb T’s Fleet The Superband, will join host J. Michael Harrison in the WRTI Performance Studio on Thursday, December 13th at 9:10 PM for a live concert. You can join them on Facebook or live on-the-air.
Thomas has recorded and traveled the world with bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma, has given rousing performances with Ruth Naomi Floyd, studied and performed with the legendary Odean Pope and has backed greats like Pat Martino, Uri Caine, Greg Osby, Kevin Eubanks, Jimmy Heath and George Benson.
His “Fleet” garnered acclaim for their 1998 release Live at Zanzibar Blue, and they continue to engage audiences throughout the region. Webb T’s Fleet – The Super Band will be in performance as part of the Second Friday on Lancaster Avenue jazz series this Friday December 14, from 8 PM to 10 PM at the CEC Meeting House Theatre located at 3500 Lancaster Avenue.
