He covers many Classic Rock pieces from the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s with a little modern country thrown in and of course some Jimmy Buffett.
Joe Maurer Band at Seacrets @ Seacrets
6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
 The sound of Maurer’s music is distinctive and unique enough to be impossible to label, but his classical and jazz training influence a blues and funk-based rock that reaches with intensity without overwhelming. Not to be eclipsed by Jon’s eye-popping keyboard skills, his passionate vocals hearken classic rockers Roger Daltry and Robert Plant while paying homage to the consumable Beatles’ harmonic sound.The current evolution of Jon’s music features a minimalist, roots-based approach by limiting the sound to four basic instruments-piano, sax, bass and drums. Notably missing from this quartet is the versatility of a guitar, but its absence allows even more space for the nuance of the featured instruments and rich vocal melodies and harmonies.While Jon stands out, he’s certainly not alone. Each band mate brings a lifetime of musical experience and education. Nick Selvi, a long-time Baltimore music veteran, has been featured in virtually every incarnation of Maurer’s bands as well as the Kelly Bell Band. But for the first time, his saxophone is not a complement, but a supplement. Nick is a perpetual student of music of all forms who plays and teaches just about every major instrument and also lends his skill on the keyboard as well.
