The Weekly Reeders

The Weekly Reeders is an "orphan instrument" band that was conceived from a chance remark made in 2013 by Carlos Cuevas, old UNT buddy, and now our melodica player, who is a fine pianist in his other life. "How about a band with melodica, accordion and vibes? That'll get some attention. Not sure what kind!" I, Lee Tomboulian, pianist, accordionist and composer, got to work writing and adapting material for this challenging, highly reedy instrumentation, and soon it was joined by the lovely voice of Elizabeth Tomboulian. Rehearsals began in Jersey City, weekly for a while, with Cliff Schmitt on bass

Maryanne Reall

Whether it's jazz, blues, a French tune or a sly “tongue in cheek” pop tune, critics, fans and musicians agree that vocalist Maryanne Reall has a distinctive way of taking you on an intimate adventure with her innate musicality, warm mellifluous tone, subtle caressing of each lyric and tastefully selected repertoire. A native New Englander, music has always been Maryanne’s passion. This passion and her dream to live in ‘California’, inspired by Joni Mitchell’s song, were both realized back in the 90’s. Since then, she’s appeared at countless venues from clubs and festivals to some of L.A.'s top jazz rooms including the world-renown Catalina Jazz Club, the World Stage Performance Gallery and the Southern California Jazz Festival

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
