Friends of March is thrilled to present our first annual FAMEfest, a benefit concert for Francis Andrew March Elementary School, featuring The Jeff “Tain” Watts Quartet. A living jazz legend, Jeff “Tain” Watts, resides and records here on College Hill.  He performed with his band at the Williams Center for the Arts (Lafayette College) on Saturday, February 15, 2020.  This concert was presented in association with the Williams Center for the Arts and the Landis Center for Community Engagement at Lafayette College.

 

Jeff “Tain” Watts is a 7 time Grammy award winner and Guggenheim Fellow.  As a drummer and percussionist, he played his formative years with Wynton and Branford Marsalis.  He now commands equal attention as a composer and band leader.  He has an extensive discography with many of the top names in jazz as well as 10 albums as a band leader.  His Quartet is made up of award-winning musicians including Gregoire Manet on harmonica, Yunior Terry on bass and Paul Bollenbach on guitar. 

 

Kicking off FAMEfest was Ito and the Moonlight Hippies.  They performed in the lobby of the Williams Center. Ito and the Moonlight Hippies are an original psychedelic, spirit jam, rock band out of Easton (including two of our very own March School alumni).


Ticket prices started at  $25 (Pay What You Want: $25, $35, $45, $55, $65, or $75) and special seating for $100.   With help from Watts Music Company, all proceeds from the concert benefitted Friends of March, a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization dedicated to raising funds to enhance Francis Andrew March Elementary School on College Hill in Easton.
