THE LANCE MARTIN/ JOHN BABOIAN FLUTE & GUITAR DUO

THE LANCE MARTIN/ JOHN BABOIAN DUO

This is a unique duo of flute & guitar. The pair has a knack for knowing a lot of tunes which are not necessarily jazz. In one sitting, requests ranged from Fats Waller, to Gershwin, to Jobim to an obscure Beatle tune. It can become more challenging and because there are a zillion songs out there, theres a chance they may not know your request, but will be able to play something from the same writer, group or era.

Functions are perfect for this duo. At times they even call on an up-right bass for a larger space. This duo/trio is able to provide lively, diverse music, which doesnt get in the way of your conversation. The guitarist is John Baboian, professor of guitar at Berklee College of Music. The bassist is David Clark, also a professor at Berklee College. The flutist is Lance Martin, of the Lance Martin Band, and conductor of the TBC Gospel Brass Ensemble. These are three accomplished musicians, all three are extremely creative, which lends to an entertaining evening whether they are playing for a function, or for performance purposes.

The duo/trio is available for many types of events. Theyve played for parties, bar/bat mitzvahs, anniversaries, weddings, store events, holiday events, museums, and of course clubs & restaurants.


The fee for the duo/trio is much less than if you went through an agency so try them out.

Go to the discography page at this site and click on the duo icon, there are samples of their music, but most importantly examples of how proficient they are on their instruments. And check this site and the local Boston Newspapers for their next performance.
