Closing out ORMACO's 2015-16 World Tour of Music Concert Series is Americana Band, Hey Mavis. Don’t miss this musical feast that contains a pinch of jazz, bluegrass, old-timey, folk and a heaping spoonful of rock. Laurie Michelle Caner (vocals, banjo, song writing) tells the story of life- with all it’s beauty, heartache, disappointment and joy- weaving a musical tapestry that speaks the truth of love, life and the human condition. Eddie Caner (violin, viola profunda) spent a dozen years performing as a sideman in national touring bands and orchestras including Page & Plant, Luciano Pavarotti, Smokey Robinson and Natlie Cole. With his Hendrix-like tone and precision, Eddie soars beautifully over Laurie’s vocals. Bryan Thomas (bass) has toured as bassist with the Glenn Miller Orchestra and is currently Bass Professor at Kent State University.
Nationally renowned, the group was a finalist in the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest and has played to sell-out crowds in their home town of Kent and to overflow audiences at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival. Hey Mavis’ unique Americana style has quickly gained a solid and passionate fan base that continues to grow at a breakneck pace.
“Marvelous…this is a charming and serious banjo-driven sound… [that] adds up to rocking Appalachian music from Akron, Ohio” The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
