About this event

With an all-star stellar lineup including some of Nashville's most renowned musicians, the Marcus Finnie Band showcases exceptional talent and superlative musicianship within and between each member, transcending into an unparalleled, inspirational and masterful musical experience. Featuring Marcus Finnie on drums with David Rodgers on piano, Miguel Alvarado on sax, Adam McPhail on guitar, Brian Allen on bass and Emmanuel Echem on trumpet.

As a Memphis native and Nashville resident, Marcus Finnie has toured with Kirk Whalum, Keb Mo, Taj Mahal, Lady Antebellum, Larry Carlton, Donna Summer, India Arie, Billy Preston, Earl Klugh and many others. Marcus has also recorded with Grammy and Stellar Award nominated and winning artists’ Kirk Whalum, Keb Mo & Taj Mahal, India Arie, Michael McDonald, Lalah Hathaway, and several others.

California native David Rodgers is one of the most exciting talents in Nashville's jazz scene today. Winner of the 2016 James Miltenberger International Jazz Piano Competition and active member of Keb' Mo's band as keyboardist, he has also recorded on numerous records including Keb's Grammy-winning Oklahoma (2019). He has toured and performed worldwide at the Montreux Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival, and the Playboy Jazz Festival, among many others.

Adam McPhail, 28, holds a Master of Commercial Music Performance from Belmont University and a Bachelor of Music (Jazz Studies) from the University of Southern Mississippi. Adam has shared the stage or recorded with many artists/groups such as B.B. King, Shirley Caesar, Kirk Whalum, Michael W. Smith, K. Michelle, All-4-One, Dorinda Clark-Cole, The Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, Cory Wong, Chris Daughtry, Erica Campbell, Bucky Covington, Maranda Curtis, Koryn Hawthorne, Jekalyn Carr, VaShawn Mitchell, Dynamo, Evvie McKinney, Todd Galberth, Adam Doleac, Melinda Doolittle, Mark Lettieri, Jeff Coffin, Roosevelt Collier, and many others. While touring across the country, he has opened for artists/groups such as Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, The Robert Glasper Experiment, Big & Rich, FORQ, Shaun Martin, Lonestar, George Clinton, Becca Stevens, and Scotty McCreery.

Hailing from Columbus, Indiana, Brian Allen started playing the bass at age eleven. His playing won him several awards throughout high school, including the prestigious Louis Armstrong Jazz award. After graduating, he moved to Los Angeles to attend Musicians Institute. There he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Music and also won the outstanding student of the year. Brian Allen was most recently on tour with Jonathan Davis of Korn in 2018. He is one of Nashville’s top recording bassists. He was nominated Bass Player of the year by the Academy of Country Music in 2018. Brian is also teaching a clinic series that will be touring in 2019 called Rhythm Section Master Class. Brian has performed a diverse range of live shows as well as recording sessions. His playing spans the musical spectrum from jazz to rock and everything in between.

Trumpeter, composer and arranger Emmanuel Echem completed his B.M. in Commercial Music and Music Technology at Belmont University, and has since then firmly established himself as a capable lead and section player, as well as an adept soloist with a unique and soulful improvisational style which frequently draws comparisons to trumpet masters such as Clifford Brown, Freddie Hubbard, and Roy Hargrove. His performance and recording credits include Joss Stone, Lauren Daigle, Charlie Wilson, Boyz II Men, Allen Stone, Dumpstaphunk, LeAnn Rimes, Johnny Reid, the Gaither Vocal Band, Dan + Shay, Jeff Coffin, Dynamo, Wayne Bergeron, The Weeks, Wycliffe Gordon, Frankie Negrón, John Clayton, Keb' Mo', La Sonora Dinamita, the Neal Morse Band ft.
