John Medeski and Billy Martin Confirm Rare Mago Show
Drummer Billy Martin and organist John Medeski first jammed together in 1989 as a duo. Shortly after, the musicians linked up with Chris Wood to form MMW, one of the improvisational world’s most successful acts. In 2007, with Wood focused on a project with his brother, Martin and Medeski released a duo album as Mago. The musicians played a few Mago shows around the time of the album’s release but have primarily focused on MMW over the past few years.
Medeski and Martin will come together for a rare Mago performance on October 9. The gig will take place aboard the Half Moon, Rocks Off boat circling New York City.
