Batucaje, a group of faculty and area jazz musicians will present a concert on Tuesday, March 9 at 7:30 p.m. at Coastal Carolina University. The performance is free and open to the public.

Contemporary vocal and instrumental American and Brazilian jazz with touches of blues and funk will be on the program held in Wheelwright Auditorium.

Batucaje, pronounced Ba-TOOK-az-hay, is comprised of Gary Lamb, flute, trumpet, and vocals; Gary Craddock, bass; Arlin Strader, drums; Bill Hamilton, associate professor of music, on piano. Also performing will be faculty guests Dan OReilly, teaching associate in performing arts, saxophone; and Kurry Seymour, assistant band director, percussion.

The quartet has been playing together for eight years and has performed at Piccolo Spoleto in Charleston. Lamb, Craddock and Strader are professional musicians who have been playing on the Grand Strand and in the region for many years.
