Ocie Davis Quartet at Snug Harbor

The drummer returns to New Orleans for a performance tonight.  He moved to New Orleans in 1995 to study at the University of New Orleans under Ellis Marsalis.  He left town after Katrina and now lives and plays with his own group in Charlotte, NC.  During his time in New Orleans, he was an in-demand drummer who played with a variety of leaders including Ellis Marsalis, Maurice Brown, Christian Scott, and Nicholas Payton.  He was a member of Robert Wagner’s trio for two years, along with the bassist James Singleton.  They recorded the disc, Lost Children, which was released on the local Valid Records.
