Local Musician Spotlight: Drummer Mike Marlier

Feb 15, 2018

If you love drums and love to hear exciting jazz drumming, don’t miss Mike Marlier.  One of the best ways to enjoy him is with The Mayhem Trio of Marlier, Eric Gunnison, and Bijoux Barbosa.  They have been playing together for nearly 20 years, producing a sound that is edgy, intriguing, rhythmically complex and always compelling.  They focus on the music of Chick Corea as well as original works by the members.

As the countdown to the relocation of Dazzle to the historic Baur’s Building at 15th and Curtis continues, the stream of jazz flowing through the club at its Lincoln Street home remains something special with pianist Gerald Clayton’s trio, clarinetist Anat Cohen with Trio Brasileiro and pianist/singer Eliane Elias with her trio all on stage during the coming week.
