The Willie Green Project @ Sea Of Glass Center For The Arts
Mar 8 @ 7:30 pm

Friday, March 8th, the Sea Of Glass—Center For The Arts presents The Willie Green Project modern jazz group from New Orleans. Made up of some of the city’s most promising young talent, the band represents the next generation of great jazz musicians emerging from the birthplace of the genre.

The band features Willie Green on drums, Taylor Mroski on bass, Andrew McGowan on piano and Trevarri Huff-Boone on saxophone.

Bandleader Willie Green is a spiritual musician and composer based in New Orleans, Louisiana. Originally hailing from LaPlace, Willie developed an interest in drums early in his childhood by playing gospel music in his dad’s church. It was there that his spiritual sensibility was born, and he has continued to infuse that spirituality into his performances and compositions ever since.

In 2011, Willie moved to New Orleans to attend Loyola University. During his college years, he was able to study with some of New Orleans’ premiere drummers, including jazz legend Herlin Riley. In his junior year at Loyola, Willie became the drummer for Delfeayo Marsalis’ Uptown Jazz Orchestra.

Since he graduated university in 2015, Willie has had the opportunity to play with New Orleans’ most promising up-and-comers and local legends alike, including Ellis Marsalis, Roderick Paulin, Gregory Agid, Betty Shirley, Michael Watson, Roger Lewis, and more. He has played major festivals both at home and across the world, including Manchester Jazz Festival in UK, Mid Atlantic Jazz Fest, French Quarter Festival, and New Orleans’ world-renowned Jazz Fest. The Willie Green Project is on tour with their debut album, Love Will Find A Way. Willie hopes to continue spreading a message of peace through his music.
