Vibraphonist Tony Miceli

Vibraphonist and educator Tony Miceli is a Philadelphia legend in his own right. His performance and teaching career has brought him around the world. Tony and his ensemble will be paying tribute to another Philly legend, the late, great Grover Washington Jr. 

Watch the performance recorded live on the WRTI Facebook Page.

Grover’s music has truly stood the test of time, and Miceli and the group will present their take on his classics. This is all in support of their upcoming show at the Barnes Foundation on Friday, November 2nd, which will feature one of Grover’s former bandmates, percussionist Doc Gibbs.
