About the Event

Summer is here and the Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble is bringing the heat with a tribute to the legendary Bob Marley. Marley is one of the key pioneers of reggae, infusing his music with ska, rocksteady, and elements of blues and soul. His distinctive lyrics and songwriting brought critical acclaim and a broader awareness of Jamaican culture and reggae music.

The Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble is an adventurous jazz group that has been playing around Philadelphia since 1979. The ensemble was founded by bassist, producer, and composer Warren Oree, who continues to lead the band. Eclectic and far from predictable, the ensemble has embraced a variety of jazz styles (often combined with African and Middle Eastern music) and dabbled a bit in R&B.

Collection and exhibition access included.

Cocktails and Caribbean fare available for purchase, including jerk chicken sliders, melon salsa fish tacos, and a fruit and cheese plate.

Limited seating available.
