Mike LeDonne Groover Quartet - South Beach Jazz Festival

Equally formidable on the piano and the Hammond B3 organ, Mike LeDonne made his reputation in the 1990s as an ace accompanist touring and recording with jazz legends such as Milt Jackson, Sonny Rollins, Bobby Hutcherson, and Benny Golson. He started establishing himself on the B3 around the turn of the century, announcing his arrival as a major new voice with 2004’s Smokin' Out Loud (Savant), a session featuring the band performing at the JHL.
The Mike LeDonne Groover Quartet is playing as part of an all-star jazz line-up on Lincoln Road (1100 Lincoln Road). Do not miss the South Beach Jazz Festival's "Jazz Hits the Road," a beautiful day of jazz music. The event is free and open to the community - people of all ages will enjoy the show!
