Casablanca performs at Taberna Country Club – January 21


Taberna Country Club will host the music of Casablanca, on Saturday January 21.

Casablanca is an instrumental trio, playing Jazz Classics and exotic World Music – as if Sam the Piano Man had taken the night off from Rick’s American Bar, and a motley but talented trio had taken his place.  Casablanca’s music, laced with favorite themes from the Silver Screen, takes you from Russia to Brazil to Persia to who knows where?

– Tom Spellman plays nylon-string and steel-string guitar.

– Glenn Druhot plays drum set, djembe, bongos, and other percussion..

– Simon Spalding plays violin, guitar, and oud, the fretless lute of the Orient.

The music starts at 6:30 and continues until 9:00, with a $5 cover for non-members.  Regular menu items will be available for those who choose to dine.

Taberna Country Club is located at 401 Taberna Drive, south of New Bern in the Taberna Community.  For reservations or information, call Taberna Country Club at 252-634-1600; or call Kelly (the manager) at 231-679-4601.

For information on the band, contact Simon Spalding at 252-636-1256.

“Casablanca will take you on a musical magic carpet ride to destinations both familiar and exotic… the sound of Casablanca is an exotic mix, as if Gypsy Jazz musicians from Paris were joined by local Moroccan players.”   –New Bern Magazine
