Bobby Thomas Jr at Arts Garage July 29
(Published: July 17, 2017)

July 29 at 8: Arts Garage welcomes twice-Grammy-nomiated master percussionist Bobby Thomas, Jr. and The Seventh Realm. Bobby has wowed audiences around the globe for more than three decades. Widely considered one of the most important percussionists in music history, his lightning-fast hands and percussive pyrotechnics prompted the great Joe Zawinul to bestow upon him the title of "The Hand Drummer."

Upon joining Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter's jazz fusion group Weather Report in the 1970s, he settled in France, and continued to play with Weather Report until 1986. After the group disbanded, Thomas resettled in Miami, and shortly afterward issued a solo CD of his own music, "In the Dreamtime," on a local label. He continued to work with Zawinul until 1994.

Besides Weather Report, Thomas played with The Zawinul Syndicate, Jaco Pastorius' Word of Mouth band, and individual artists including Stan Getz, David Sanborn, Carlos Santana, Eddie Harris, Branford Marsalis, Herbie Mann, Ahmad Jamal and Roberto Perera. World artists he has played with include sitar player Amitava Chatterjee, and African artist Vinx. Thomas maintains an extensive discography and has issued several solo CDs on which he plays an eclectic mix of instruments including conga drums, wind instruments, guitar and the African bow harp.

Arts Garage is located at 94 NE 2nd Ave in Delray Beach. Tickets are $30-$40-$45 at artsgarage.org or 561-450-6357. BRING YOUR OWN ... WHATEVER! The theater boasts cabaret style table seating, where patrons can bring their own food and drinks, including alcohol. Music courtesy of KCC Productions.
