Foundry 616 2019 marked the 100th anniversary of the birth of drumming legend Art Blakey and in celebration of this, drummer/

They will be performing classic Jazz Messengers repertoire, along with some lesser-known material by Blakey alumni.
Andrew will be joined by Warwick Alder – trumpet, Andrew Robertson – sax, Aaron Blakey – piano, and Jacob Graham –
Expect a night of fiery swing and foot-tapping grooves!
