[ Complete Show Schedule... ]
Sparkplug
FEATURING:
Beau Sasser, Hammond organ
Bill Carbone, drums
David Davis, saxophone, EWI & vocoder
Jamemurrell Stanley, percussion

Organist Beau Sasser and drummer Bill Carbone spent several years as the other two-thirds of the late legendary soul jazz guitarist Melvin Sparks's trio. Sparks was always planning for the future, and he frequently played the band demos of songs he wanted to record or other tracks everything from Jimmy Smith to Zapp and Roger that he thought would be fun live.



Sparkplug is Sasser and Carbone's way of paying tribute to their friend and mentor by performing the songs that he wrote and on which he performed during his 45-year career, as well as imagining what else he might do if he were still here. In addition to Sasser and Carbone, the band features saxophonist David Davis and percussionist Jamemurrell Stanley. The band doesn't have a regular guitarist, however because Sparks is irreplaceable, Sparkplug features different guest guitarists on each gig.
