The Town of Marana is excited to welcome Notes from Neptune as the next band in our Free Music In Marana Concert Series. The Phoenix-based band is making the trip down I-10 for the show and is excited to perform in front of the Marana audience.

They will take the stage at 7:00 p.m. at Crossroads at Silverbell Regional Park. Ciao Down will be selling their hand crafted pizza and Italian Sodas starting at 6:30 p.m., making dinner and dancing a Saturday night option.

Notes from Neptune is often described as a musical journey. The band is comprised of Scott, a nylon string guitarist and Thomas, a saxophonist. Both have amazing vocals. Their performances are a combination of a mellow acoustic groove combined with Thomas’ gritty, soulful vocals. Throw in the cool jazz feel of Thomas’ saxophone and their great vocal harmonies and you have a very unique, engaging musical act.  Fans of theirs have described them as “genuine, soulful, joyful, and classy.”

Their set list is a versatile one. They will take you back in time with classic rock covers of Pink Floyd and The Doors, and they bring out the Motown soul in you with Bill Withers and James Brown. They like to go modern with a little John Mayer and Gnarls Barkley and even swing the jazz a bit with their impression of Michael Buble and Louie Armstrong. Then there are their originals. With Thomas’ saxophone they can easily transition from 1980’s pop to 60’s and 70’s R&B to cool jazz, while their tight vocal harmonies can breathe new life into familiar favorites. Some songs will get your toes tapping, while others will soothe the soul.

Both Scott and Thomas are phenomenal musicians having each played for over 20 years. They started this trip together a little over a year ago and see a bright future ahead.
