5:45 Mario Fogg Quintet

Mario Fogg

A man of few words, but very dynamic and compelling when spoken, is one way to describe Mario’s personality and playing. His approach to music, is like a conversation, an exchange of ideas. Mario believes (as do all the great musicians he looks up to), that music is a universal language, that musicians speak and are able to communicate with each other, no matter where they may be from. No matter what background, ethnicity, nationality, race, color, age, or even language, the power of music, allows these creatives, to communicate with each other, despite the many so called “barriers” that often hinders us.

7:00 – Dazey Lee

Dazey LeeAn Atlanta native, she is known for her unique vocal style and sonic flip flop of cadence and tempo changes. She lights up the stage and brings an "It" factor that has left audiences from the Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson International Airport (where she plays every week) to regional restaurants and bar patrons wondering just where she comes from. She has a real sweet southern charm with a sometimes haunting vocal, but make no mistake she is wild rock & roll! Her live performances include a full band + live looping. She writes her own music as well as placements for other artist and movies. She is an Atlanta gem that will soon be heard around the world.
