Montreal native GABE GLOBUS-HOENICH is one of Philadelphia’s most promising young percussionists. He currently drums in the Philadelphia-New York area where he has performed with Orrin Evans, Sid Simmons, Tia Fuller, Larry McKenna, Tony Miceli, Mike Boone, Tim Berne, Ralph Alessi, Mark Helias, Marc Ducret, Andy Milne, and Drew Gress. Gabe is also an avid performer of contemporary classical music and performs with the Philadelphia based Chamber Music Now! Ensemble and the experimental group Ensemble No-Amnesia. A 2008 graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music, Gabe has studied with some of the premier percussionists in the world, focusing on contemporary percussion, world percussion, and jazz drumming.  Tonight’s sextet consists of an all-star cast of young and veteran musicians with a unique instrumentation of drums, bass, electric valve instrument (EVI), vibraphone, guitar, and piano.

To those who know her, JEANNIE BROOKS is the consummate overall vocalist. Her talents envelope any style, whether it be pop, rock, R&B, soul, gospel or her true passion jazz. Where other artists are stronger in one area that another, Jeannie maintains excellence in all ranges of the vocal arts. That quality alone is enough to garner the respect of any musician that has ever played with her. Her ability to anticipate changes, improvise with trained as well as impeccable natural talent, and her stunning delivery are almost nonexistent in any other vocalist in recent times.

Lucky Old Souls @ Moonstone is a monthly event, showcasing some of Philadelphia’s most creative musicians in a laid-back, BYOB venue that combines the intimacy of a club with a concert hall’s respect for the music.
