Timonium, MD: The W Home Group of Next Step Realty, Marylands Leading Real Estate Team, announced today their upcoming virtual concert featuring the Eric Byrd Trio on April 30th. The reason? International Jazz Day! We wanted to do something special shared the Home Group, to feature a well-known and much-loved local jazz group for this big day. The Group shared that though their original ideas have been modified due to the restrictions with COVID-19, they are not deterred. These uncertain times call for encouragement and inspiration which music can provide. And, if you have witnessed the Eric Byrd Trio in action, you will know that this is the group to bring both of those things and more to our audience!
For almost two decades, The Eric Byrd Trio (EBT), pianist/vocalist Eric Byrd, bassist Bhagwan Khalsa, and drummer Alphonso Young, Jr., have traveled the world as enthusiastic ambassadors of jazz. Rooted in swing and be-bop, The Trio also embraces gospel and the blues as core elements of their expansive performance style. The Trio has been sponsored by the United States Embassy as Kennedy Center/U.S. State Department Jazz Ambassadors touring South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Eastern & Western Europe, and the Middle East. They have also delighted audiences across the globe at the historic Montreux Jazz Festival and in Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Dubai, Estonia, Honduras, Italy, Peru, Scotland, and Trinidad and Tobago. Their body of work spans seven unique studio and live recordings on which they shine as a Trio and as collaborators with an expanded 8-piece ensemble they call The Eric Byrd Trio: Brother Ray Band, in tribute to The Genius of Soul icon Ray Charles. Needless to say, The W Home Group chose the right partners to celebrate International Jazz Day!
In light of the restrictions on large gatherings, the Home Group has opted to live-stream a 45-minute EBT concert from their Timonium office via their Facebook page. In the days leading up to the event, the Home Group will be sharing cocktail and mocktail recipes, offering giveaways based on the EBTs favorite things, and even allowing future audience members to request songs all via their Instagram. This will prove to be one virtual meeting you will not want to miss!
