Thursday at the Square summer concert

Jeff Martin brings his first tour as solo artist to Buffalo


Former Tea Party mastermind Jeff Martin kicks off the second leg of his very first tour as a solo artist with a gig here in Buffalo on Thursday, part of this summer’s Thursday at the Square summer concert series.

Martin and his new band – which includes Jimmy Page & Robert Plant drummer Michael Lee, percussionist Ritesh Das of the Toronto Tabla Ensemble and local multi-instrumentalist Nelson Starr – toured Canada a few weeks back, immediately following the release of Martin’s solo debut nod, “Exile and the Kingdom,” a record that deepens the dramatic, technicolor, world-music-infused strains of hard rock that the Tea Party spent more than a decade developing.

Following his Buffalo appearance, Martin will continue on with further Canadian dates – a few of them supporting alt-rock quartet Live – and ultimately end up in Australia, where he’s likely to be greeted as a returning hero – the Tea Party has always been a favorite of the Australian rock cognoscente.

The Thursday at the Square show starts off with a set from Burning Paris at 5 p.m. Admission, as always, is free.
