Mardra and Reggie Thomas Coming Home to Perform Saturday, February 9 at Robbie's House of Jazz

SOURCE: Published:
Singer Mardra Thomas (pictured) and keyboard player Reggie Thomas will be returning to St. Louis next month to perform at 8:00 p.m., Saturday, February 9 at Robbie's House of Jazz.

Longtime fixtures on the St. Louis jazz scene, the Thomases moved to Michigan in 2011 after Reggie, who formerly taught at SIUE, got a new job teaching music at Michigan State University. In most years of the decade-plus before their move, the husband-and-wife team performed some time around Valentine's Day at Jazz at the Bistro, prompting the nickname “the Sweethearts of Jazz," so this show is something of a continuation of that tradition.

They'll be joined for the gig at Robbie's by two familiar collaborators, guitarist Rick Haydon and drummer Montez Coleman. No info available yet as to the ticket price, but Robbie's typically charges a $10 cover on the weekends (with higher amounts occasionally for some touring performers). More details here and on the St. Louis Jazz Notes calendar as they're released.
