Igmar Thomas & The Cypher feat. Special Guest Marcus Strickland & Raydar Ellis ~ 11:00pm

Trumpeter, composer, arranger, bandleader… IGMAR THOMAS has developed his craft since the age of 12, picking up appendages to his style from playing with legends such as Lionel Hampton, Clark Terry, Roy Hargrove, Ralph Peterson, and Terri Lynne Carrington. He graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2006 where he studied on a full scholarship, and met many of the players that would soon make up his group.

Igmar combines the sophistication of Jazz with the influences of hip hop and what sets Igmar apart from other bands is his emphasis on improvisation, a common feature of both Jazz and hip hop.
