The Quintet will perform original jazz compositions, reflecting the players’ diverse backgrounds.  Their music has been described as powerful, elegant, and raw.

These musicians are all about listening to and accepting each other’s ideas, always striving to enhance their artistic expression. They look forward to exploring this and other contemporary approaches to jazz with their audience.

2014 Rhode Island Mini Maker Faire @ AS220 | Providence | Rhode Island | United States

Celebrate New England D.I.Y!

The 2014 Rhode Island Mini Maker Faire features hands-on making, building & hacking, crafting, garage technology, arts and creativity for sale, and robots, right in the middle of downtown Providence, RI, at AS220 and Hasbro, on October 11, 2014.

About Maker Faire:

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.

Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.

The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2013 celebrated its eighth annual show with some 900 makers and 125,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in three years to 500+ makers and 55,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Newcastle (UK), Rome, and Tokyo are the home of “featured” Maker Faires (200+ makers), and community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world—including right here in Rhode Island.

Maker Faire is organized by MAKE magazine and supported by Maker Media.
