The Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra returns to Zebulon, this time to remember the great Horace Tapscott.
Horace Tapscott was the founder and conductor of The Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra. The Ark began in ‘61 as small rehearsals in his garage and grew to congregations of 20+ musicians. Over the 68 years active, over 300 musicians and counting have played with The Ark. Horace’s music reflected his deep love of his community. He was a social/political activist, community focused, world class musician. To many who knew him, he was a friend, father figure, musical griot. February 27th 2019, marks 20 years since his passing. The Ark will perform a special set to honor Horace.

The Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra
The Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra
The Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra was founded by the illustrious
spiritual jazz entity known as Horace tapscott. Since their birth in
the early 70’s the group, which can consist of 15 or more members, has been doing shows in and around their home of Los Angeles, spreading the jazz ideologies of Tapscott. This ensemble is truly a fantastic representation of Spiritual jazz from Los Angeles and their live performances are not to be missed! Several of the original members still perform along with some younger players who hold immaculate talent.
Double D & The Skipper Quartet
For those who don’t know, these aliases belong to local jazz greats Donald Dean & Henry Franklin. Both Franklin and Dean knew Tapscott from the days of his early garage rehearsals. Each has had a strong career, performing and recording with some of the best musicians on the planet.
