Drew Nugent & the Midnight Society Trio

Sunday, August 4 · view days & times
Venue: BB&T Jazz Cabaret Stage

Drew Nugent is a jazz musician and composer from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His primary instruments are piano, trumpet, voice, and believe it or not, the tea kettle! Nugent and the band specialize in playing in the traditional "hot" jazz style of the 1920s but also encompass New Orlean Barrelhouse, Second Line, 1930s and 40s, and Gypsy Jazz. Listening to them is not simply a concert, but a walk back in time. A living history of sorts. The band, known as the Midnight Society, is regarded as one of the best in the business, and has been together over 10 years. Under Drew's leadership, they bring forth an authentic, yet original approach to an art form over 100 years old. Nugent's inspiration comes from a who's who list of great performers, composers, and musicians, both obscure and known going back a full century. Although a lot of this music may seem forgotten in many circles, it is alive and well with Drew Nugent and the Midnight Society
