August 26, 27 & 28
Master percussionist Jamey Haddad is NEO treasure. A Cleveland native, he teaches at Oberlin College between gigs with superstars like Paul Simon and Sting.
His heart is in jazz and world music, and he has collected over 1000 percussion instruments on his travels. He has also connected with musicians from around the world. His group Under One Sun is setting up for a rare 3-night gig at BOP STOP on Aug 26, 27 & 28, then they are headed into the studio at Oberlin to record.
When Jamey heard that the BOP STOP was in need of a decent piano, he pulled some strings and the day we arrived, a restored 7-foot Steinway B was being delivered on a permanent loan from Oberlin College. The gifts keep coming.
