Michael Pedicin, in collaboration with the South Jersey Jazz Society, presents “Jazz with Philly Roots.” Michael has created a wonderful series of presenting his friends, most of whom are musicians and university educators, who have grown up in the city of Philadelphia and established themselves as important figures on the current jazz scene there, as well as some national and international prominence. All concerts will be held at 2:00pm in the Chris Maloney Lecture Hall in the Ocean City Free Public Library. Concerts are FREE and open to the public. No tickets required! 

Mike Boone Quartet


Mike Boone was born in New York City, and started taking piano lessons at the age of eight. He later attended the prestigious Eastman School of Music, studying upright bass with Oscar Zimmerman and James Van Denmark. He eventually went on the road with Ben Vereen, and later with Buddy Rich before moving to Philadelphia in 1983. Mike has consistently played and recorded with the best musicians in Philadelphia, i.e. John Swana, Trudy Pitts, Shirley Scott, Sid Simmons, Byron Landham, and many more. Mike has produced a few albums of his own as a leader, and is currently an adjunct professor of Jazz (Bass) at Temple University. He is now joined in this quartet with his 13 year old son, musical prodigy Mekhi Boone.
