A Roman Street – Marlow Boys Christmas
December 8, 2023 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Hear Christmas Classics done in a new and exciting way on Friday, December 8 at 7:30PM!
Internationally trained brothers Noah and Josh Thompson put their guitars together to form Roman Street, Alabama Gulf Coast’s own nationally touring contemporary jazz artists. This brotherly jam session developed into a Billboard/iTunes charting band with several top 25 Billboard hits and five albums. Many have dubbed them ‘the next generation’ of Jazz Fusion. Whether performing as a guitar duo, or with a backing band, Roman Street astounds with music that appeals to fans of many genres.
The Marlow Boys are a local band based out of Fairhope. Karl and Joe Langley grew up outside of Fairhope near the small community of Marlow. Joe currently lives in Daphne with his wife and daughters, and said if everything pans out he would love to find a piece of property to settle down and live in Fairhope “forever”.
The band met three years ago at the Green Room Studio in Fairhope, after being invited by the owner for a meet and greet. Phil Proctor wanted a band that focused on original music, and when they all came together to start playing, it was “effortless”. Phil Proctor and Stan Foster have regular gigs at Callaghans in Mobile, which became an open door for the band to feature new music every last Wednesday of each month.
In terms of describing themselves and their sound, the Marlow Boys say that everyone in the band has a completely different personality. They’re all family men which shines through in their music. “Each band member at times is fun, serious, OCD, scattered, covered, smothered, and chopped. Each band member brings a packed tool box of talent so there’s a versatility that we enjoy as a band. Each member sings lead and harmony which is one of my [Joe] absolute favorite parts of Marlow.”
