WEDNESDAY'S

Frank Lacy

Featuring:

Frank Lacy

Kumba Frank Lacy is an “American Jazz trombonist” with his “roots” in soul r&b sounds . Frank performs with his Band "Awareness"  every Wednesday night at the Pub. The line ups got to be great from this one of a kind broad thinking individual expelling thought provoking solos, melodies, in unison or in a gospel roar singing with background horns and voices, blowing the roof off the house on a regular basis.
