Salisbury night life

Downtown Salisbury is buzzing with a variety of music talent this weekend.
The John Mochnick Trio returns to Salisbury this Friday to regale the patrons of The Blue Vine with live jazz, 9 p.m.-midnight.
This Winston-Salem based trio is led by Mochnick, a distinguished conductor, composer/arranger, administrator and teacher who is an avid and active jazz pianist and trumpet player. His present ensemble includes the nimble fingered Jimmy Vail on guitar and bassist extraordinaire, Matt Kendrick.
Proprietor Rose Meeks Jones says “You’re gonna love their smooth renditions of Jazz standards and sparkling originals spiced with keen vocals. You won’t want to miss this one, Salisbury!”
There will be a $5 cover at the door. Call 704-797-0093 for more information.
The Delta Drift makes a rare hometown Salisbury appearance this Friday night at Benchwarmers, 113 E. Fisher St. And you need to catch them while you can, since it was recently announced that after two years and 150 or so performances band members Nick Foltz, Cameron Thomas, Jimbo Martin and Kjeff Hansen will soon be setting off in different directions and the band will be playing it’s farewell performances next month.
Find out more at www.myspace.com/thedeltadrift.
Nonsense Deep, a three-piece band from Salisbury, comprised of Jason Rimmer, Mark Wurster and Ashley Honbarrier performs a variety of music from rock-70s to today with some reggae thrown in for good measure. They are currently working on an original album to be released soon.
Jason and Ashley regularly host Tuesday open mic nights at Benchwarmers, 113 E. Fisher St. That will also be the site for their show this Saturday night.
You can read more and hear the band at www.myspace.com/nonsensedeep
Guitar-toting folkie Ian Thomas may reside in New York City, but his sound bypasses the concrete jungle for the deep rural territories of acoustic blues.
Though each of the 12 tracks on his album “A Young Man’s Blues” wakes memories of long-forgotten standards, they are all originals. Thomas effortlessly bounces through jaunty rags, crying ballads and gentle folk, treating each style with casual reverence.
You can give a listen at www.myspace.com/ianthomas
Thomas returns with his guitar, harmonica and kazoo this Saturday at 9 p.m.to The Blue Vine, 209 S. Main St. There’s no cover charge.
