Mark G. Meadows and the Movement
Acclaimed jazz composer, pianist, vocalist, collaborator, recording artist, teacher, actor, & music director, Mark G. Meadows is a man on a mission: to create a unifying sound that breaks through social barriers. There’s something for everyone in his music, which harmonizes Pop, Gospel, R&B, Hip Hop, Funk, and Jazz. With his lyrics, suffused with meaning, and his velvet voice, Meadows cuts through the noise to speak to all. Debonair on the stage, he is an entertainer of the highest caliber.
The Tony Hancock Trio
The Tony Hancock Trio is one of Harford County’s premier smooth Jazz acts, even with despite their youth (they’re all under 25). Tony Hancock, Briley Harris & Adam Lilly have played everything from The Vans Warped Tour on stage, to many sold out clubs. Though the guys have been jamming together since middle school, they made the lineup official in 2017. Blending a smooth Jazz/R&B vibe with your favorite top 40 hits, both new and old, The Tony Hancock Trio is more of an experience than a band as you’ll see for yourself.
