Lincoln Academy alumnus and Damariscotta native Bob Page ’71, along with his Jazz Babies band-mates, will be featured during a special performance to benefit Lincoln Academy at 7:00 pm, Thursday, August 18, at the Lincoln Theater. General Admission tickets are $25.
Bob Page is one of a rare breed of piano players still going strong today. Influenced by such greats as Fats Waller, Otis Spann, and Professor Longhair, Bob manages to bring his audiences a distinctive style of music that’s unmistakably his own.
Known for his heavy left hand and versatility of style, Bob has played since the 60s opening for such acts as Muddy Waters, John Hammond, Albert King, and Mose Allison. He learned his craft playing as a sideman with Chuck Berry, James Cotton, Maria Muldaur, The Georgia Satellites, and many more. He has toured extensively in Scandinavia, Europe, and the Caribbean, released 6 CDs, and twice been nominated for a Grammy. In 2012 he wrote a song that was featured in Clint Eastwood’s movie “Trouble With the Curve.”
Dedicated to preserving traditional American music, Bob will be joined by four of the best jazz performers ever produced in this region: Lincoln Academy alumni Dave Page ’75 on drums and Jack Tukey ’71 on bass, Barney Balch (LA past parent) on trombone; and Lefty McAuslin on sax.
The Jazz Babies have brought lively, solid entertainment to jazz fans in this area for many years. This is a concert you won’t want to miss!
