Tony Monaco / Fareed Haque Trio

June 18, 2015

Internationally-acclaimed Hammond B-3 organist, Tony Monaco, and modern guitar virtuoso, Fareed Haque, brought their high-octane jazz trio to the Rubber City for their BLU Jazz+ debut earlier this month, featuring drummer extraordinaire, Louis Tsamous!
This was a very special night of hard-swingin’ live jazz at its finest. We are so happy to hear that Tony Monaco is recovering well (and already back to playing…!) after a recent unexpected medical procedure. We are looking forward to having this wonderful group of musicians (and all-around great guys) back to BLU down the line!
