DR. THARA MEMORY

& AMERICAN MUSIC PROGRAM

PLAY WATERFRONT BLUES FESTIVAL + RELEASE THEIR FIRST CD “LIVE AT THE GERDING THEATER – NOTHIN’ BUT THE BLUES’

Friday, July 4
Waterfront Blues Festival - South Stage

On Friday, July 4, 2014, Grammy winner, Dr. Thara Memory will direct the award-winning, 7-12 grade student American Music Program orchestra. They will be the final, headline musical act prior to the singing of the National Anthem and fireworks.

The Blues Festival show will feature songs from the band’s very first compact disc. Recorded live at last year’s benefit performance in the Gerding Theater at the Armory, the CD features a mix of blues and blues inspired tunes ranging from Al Green’s “Take Me To The River” to Thad Jones’s "Morning Reverend”. The recording was captured in front of a sold-out concert to benefit the non-profit organization’s on-going music education projects.


Thara Memory and Esperanza Spalding have won the Grammy for "Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalists" for the song City of Roses.

Chronicle is Thara Memory's latest album featuring guest artists Israel Annoh, Stan Bock, Skip Elliot Bowman, Daniel Brewster, Renato Caranto, Marilyn Keller, Stevie Ray Mays, Warren Rand, Janice Scroggins, and many others

You can purchase your copy of "Chronicle" online at CD Baby or at Music Millenium
