The Lance Martin Band with Lori Dow
RYLES in INMAN SQUARE, CAMBRIDGE, MA
It looks like RYLES will be closing it’s doors soon. This is yet another
Needed Boston music venue closing. This affects a lot of incredible
musicians in the Boston area.
I started playing at RYLES with my Professor, Herman Johnson. He allowed me
To sit-in whenever I came. I then played on Thursdays with Professor Billy Thompson
And his band (it turned out we were all Capricorns!!) Then RYLES gave me my own bookings.
I performed with my Lance Martin Band and when they gave me more dates, I ended up starting
The Lance Martin Jazz Trio. The owners, began using me to teach Premier Jazz classes for visiting
Canadian Jazz Students. And when I was given a raise, I used that opportunity to hire various special guests.
We appreciate the fan base throughout the years. There were nights when we had a kickin’ band and the audience was small, and there were nights when the band wasn’t having a good night, yet the audience was large and great! Then there was the perfect storm where we had a great show in front of a great audience. Please continue to follow us and support affordable live music in Boston. THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING US !!
We hope you can come out on Friday, March 30th 9:00 pm for The Lance Martin Band featuring Vocalist, Lori Dow
