THE SHOW MUST GO ON!!! It looks like it is going to rain most of the day, so we are going to hold our event indoors this evening in the social hall downstairs with Hye Fusion to benefit Action, Inc. with our Markouk offering delicious Middle Eastern food for your indoor picnicking pleasure! The show starts at 6:00pm, just like being outside.

This trio of classically trained musicians blends Western jazz favorites with the irresistible rhythms and melodies of their Middle Eastern backgrounds for a thrilling evening of East-meets-West fusion. Get ready for an unforgettable evening as these three virtuoso musicians take you on a unique musical journey that will have you dancing in the aisles. Mal Barsamian is a multi-talented instrumentalist equally skilled on classical and rhythm guitars, clarinet, saxophone, and the traditional Middle Eastern oud. Harry Bedrossian is a classically trained concert pianist who has embraced the Jazz tradition through the work of Oscar Petersen and Bill Evans. He is also an accomplished oud player. Charles Dermenjian is a talented percussionist who has shared the stage with a number of jazz greats and performed extensively both nationally and internationally. He plays the doumbek, a traditional percussion instrument common throughout Middle Eastern cultures.
