The Mars 4tet
8:00 PM - 11:00 PM

The MARS 4-tet
" . . . .they ain’t your Grandma’s jazz band."

49 West is proud to welcome back eclectic jazz super group, the MARS 4-tet. They move effortlessly from the classic jazz of Horace Silver and Herbie Hancock to the pop hits of Gino Vannelli, Peter Gabriel and Led Zeppelin. Get ready for energy, humor and groove. The band features acclaimed recording and performing artists bassist Max Murray, saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk, drummer Frank Russo and guitarist Donato Soveiro.

As a long time member of Afro Bop Alliance, bassist Max Murray shared a Latin Grammy Award and a Grammy nomination for the 2008 album Caribbean Jazz Project with Dave Samuels. The Boston bred musician is a former U.S. Naval Academy Band member.

Saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk has toured many continents since leaving Alberta, Canada and is lauded for his heightened powers on the saxophone. Jazz Times praised his “considerable chops” while MusikReviews.com described his “amazing saxophone playing.” He is a recognized master of modern jazz, hard bop and funk.

Drummer Frank Russo enjoyed a long career with the U.S. Naval Academy Band, and has since won critical praise for his work with many jazz greats. His recordings have gained recognition from Downbeat, Jazz Times and Modern Drummer. He has performed at numerous jazz festivals in North America, Asia, and Europe.

Guitarist Donato Soviero has appeared with numerous groups in the US, Europe and the Caribbean. Like his bandmates, he has performed at all the top Washington, D.C. concert venues. Tom Cole, host of WPFW’S “G Strings” said “Donato's beautiful phrasing and impressive improvising took me aback. He’s one of those real surprises.”

First Sunday Arts Festival
12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Include Annapolis’ September First Sunday Arts Festival …

In your Labor Day Holiday Plans!

In September your summer activities begin to wind down as you realize that vacations are over and the daylight hours are getting shorter even though the thermometer is still reading high temperatures! But wait, summer can’t end before we all celebrate one more landmark holiday: Labor Day! And this year, Annapolis’ First Sunday Art Festival falls right before Labor Day on September 1st. If you are in or near Annapolis, plan on making this outdoor, fun art festival part of your holiday plans.

First Sunday is a festival that celebrates many forms of art – with live music, entertainment, and over 100 booths of art, jewelry, house wares, accessories and so much more. It is a fun-filled, outdoor, free, family affair for all ages. And since West Street is closed to cars from Church Circle to Calvert Street during the festival, several restaurants become outdoor cafes with perfect seating to watch the fun and people go by! The festival begins at noon and goes until 5:00 p.m. – a full day of fun for everyone in your family.

Live Entertainment on West Street …
Studio 180 -- will perform aerial dance routines from noon to 5:00 p.m. in Stan and Joe’s side lot. This is a studio of many dance disciplines from ballet and tap to aerial.

Darden Purcell Quartet -- will perform from Noon – 1:30 p.m. in Wiseman Park. Playing swinging standards, bossa novas and Great American Songbook repertoire!

Jazz Band Masterclass, with Jeff Antoniuk-- will play from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. in Wiseman Park. Saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk is a jazz musician and composer.

Around the Corner in Whitmore Park:

Melissa Cox Trio – From Celtic Fusion to Trip Folk, World to acoustic electronic, rock to classical choir, Melissa Cox is an old soul with a new sound - from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.

We hope you can join the fun and festivities on September 1st for Annapolis’ First Sunday Arts Festival. Mark your calendars for the final two First Art Festivals: October 6 on West & Calvert; and the ever-popular Holiday Arts Sale at Maryland Hall on November 3!

Annapolis Fringe Festival
4:00 PM - 12:00 AM

What's this "Fringe" thing?

In the United States, no one organization or individual owns, controls or regulates the name “Fringe.” There are no national rules for how each individual festivals operate; the festivals’ content, finances and structure vary from city to city. Generally, however, all the festivals are committed to an open forum of expression that minimizes the financial risks for both artists and audiences. Fringes strive to keep application fees and ticket prices low so that more people can participate.

It focuses on the performing arts: Theater, dance, puppetry, spoken word and the like, make up the Fringe core. Festivals often include film and visual arts elements. Fringes don't have a focus on a single discipline or genre -- they are a performing-arts
It's uncensored: No one gets too fussy about swears or nudity.
It's easy to participate: Ticket prices are low for audiences and production fees are low for artists. Show selection varies and is open to participation by the gamut of amateurs to professionals. It's rapid-fire: Typically, tech is minimal and time is a factor. Shows are often kept brief (Fringes most frequently have shows right around 30 minutes in length) and technical requirements are kept simple, i.e. minor sets, streamlined cues, and nothing elaborate.

It all started in 1947 in Edinburgh, Scotland...
Fringe performing arts festivals can now be found all over the world.

Think fun culture...
The festivals are committed to an open forum of expression that minimizes the financial risks for both artists and audiences. Fringe Festivals strive to keep application fees and ticket prices low in order that more people can participate, share, learn, and enjoy.

What's the Annapolis Fringe Festival? Think fun culture! This one-day event features performances for families during the day. Adult performances take over the venues as day falls into night. Where's the 2014 Annapolis Fringe Festival?

It starts on historic Church Circle, goes down Gallery Row, through the Arts District and ends at Westgate Circle. From circle to circle you'll find restaurants, night spots, galleries, shops and a few vacant retail spaces along the route are occupied with challenging and exciting fringe events.

Who are the "Fringe" artists? Artists range from first-timers to nationally known names.
fyi: artists love sponsors! Please consider becoming a sponsor for the event, for a single venue, or for your own favorite artist. Sponsor or donate now.
