ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Mean to Me is comprised of four core members: Judy, who trained as a cabaret singer but whose love is for soul music; Ben, a pianist interested in exploring jazz’s roots after living in New Orleans; Cairo, a drummer with a deep knowledge of music the world over; and Dave, a trumpeter drawn to more modern and funky sounds. All four grew up in the Bay Area and have played together on and off for ten years.
