-Legendary radio host "Tippy" Calloway
Milkshake Mayfield has circled the world, gracing national and international stages, but on Thursday, February 18th, at 7pm, he returns to his hometown to take the stage at the Historic Ritz Theatre for a Night at the Ritz performance.
It is no wonder that the late legendary radio host, "Tippy" Calloway, befittingly announced Milkshake as trumpeter extraordinaire. His music presentation mirrors the legacy of jazz greats. He's performed with a "who's who" among contemporary jazz giants - Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, mentor Clark Terry, Wynton Marsalis, Cab Calloway, Freddie Hubbard, and many others. His astounding jazz portfolio includes performances/opening acts with the SOS band, Bobby Byrd and the JB's, Michael Franks, Alex Bugnon, Kevin Eubanks, and Maysa, formerly of Incognito.
As anyone can tell, Milkshake and the Milkshake Quintet can be found almost anywhere in the world where smooth jazz is heard on local, national, and international stages. When not performing, Milkshake can be found mentoring youth and young musicians.
Date: February 18th
Tickets: Available Online.
Main Street Toccoa is proud to present Milkshake Mayfield as part of Night at the Ritz.
