IN OTHER NEWZ: We have been busy, busy, busy finishing our music series Heart Beat. On Tuesday Christmas Day, the 5th episode will be broadcast on Bravo!
Gifts of Laughter and Music is the story of the relationship between flugelhorn player JoJo Bennett and singer/saxophonist Fergus Hambleton. The two came together in 1980 to form The Sattalites, first as a teaching vehicle which developed into a nationally renowned band. Jo Jo’s deep reggae roots melded with Fergus’ love of ’60’s pop vocal harmonies creating a unique flavor. Sattalites fans continue to gather to hear them at the famed Orbit Room on College Street.
