THE RISING STARS OF THE MODERN JAZZ SCENE – ALL WEEKEND LONG!
Electrifying Lebanese-Canadian drummer, Sanah Kadoura is here this week with her Groove Collective, featuring Rod Harris Jr. on guitar and Thana Alexa on vocals. Sanah is a one-of-a-kind drummer and bandleader. She brings a cutting edge sound to the stage, with electric, nouveau and experimental influences. Come color outside the lines with us this week at Black Cat!

She is a one of a kind drummer that you have to see for yourself. Book your tickets now for this electrifying performance!

ROD HARRIS JR: Grammy-nominated guitarist Rod Harris Jr. is a native of Jacksonville, Florida. Rod was exposed to music at a young age by his singer/songwriter father. When Rod was 14, they moved to Atlanta, GA, where on his 17th birthday, his father gave him $150 dollars, and Rod decided to take the money and purchase an acoustic guitar. “…I don’t know what provoked me to get a guitar…It had to be God…because I could’ve partied that money away…quickly..” he says. Once he began learning the instrument he fell in love with it and was determined to be a great player. “ …I think my senior year, my classmates thought I was crazy…I didn’t party…I literally locked myself in my room and practiced for hours…”he says. Hard work pays off! Rod is an incredible talent on the guitar, that you have to witness in person. Book your tickets now!

THANA ALEXA: Thana is a graduate of the New School University where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jazz and Contemporary Music and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. Although born in New York City, Thana grew up in Croatia – her family’s country of origin – where she was mentored for many years by vibraphonist and club owner, Bosko Petrovic. She is an active member of Antonio Sanchez’ touring ensemble Migration (Grammy winner for the Birdman film score as well as Pat Metheny’s drummer of 16 years) and has recorded two critically acclaimed albums with the group, New Life and The Meridian Suite, (Seamus Blake, John Escreet, Matt Brewer). Alexa also appears on three of guitarist Gene Ess’s albums. The first two records (Fractal Attraction and Eternal Monomyth) – for which Alexa contributed vocals, compositions and lyrics – won the SESAC Jazz Award in 2015 and 2016. The group’s third album Absurdist Theater (Manuel Valera, Yasushi Nakamura, Clarence Penn) – for which Alexa contributed lyrics – was released in September of 2016. She recently released an album of her own titled ONA. She is joined by the S.A.N.A.H. Groove Collective, and guitarist Rod Harris Jr!
