JazzArts Charlotte: THE SET with drummer Kobe Watkins

( Thu., Jul. 22, 2021 )

Online, , , NC


JazzArts Charlotte’s virtual live music series is excited to present drummer Kobie Watkins, whose Grouptet will be performing from his albums “Movement” and “Involved”, songs intended to connect your soul with your feet.

Kobie Watkins is one of the most dynamic jazz drummers in the region. Band director by day, nicknamed “the swingmaster of Chicago” by night, you cannot help but catch his enthusiasm. Kobie has played at the JAZZ ROOM many times over the years, from the Hubert Laws tribute November 2017 to the January 2020 John Coltrane recognition.
