Twenty-five years, five shows, five venues, and eight days — all wrapped up in a "3X3" package will be presented by Mark "Mr. B" Braun on April 20th. For the first time, Braun will feature three keyboard artists, all in trio format, with string bass and drums accompanying. Mr. B will be joined onstage by the young Carnez Wright, one of the region's most revered gospel pianists and organists, and, a special guest, one of the most acclaimed stride pianists alive today, who will be travelling a long distance to surprise the audience on this special 25th anniversary. Over these 25 years, BBPC has welcomed more than 50 of the world's finest pianists to southeast Michigan's concert halls, schools, libraries, and museums, reaching some 10,000 fans.

"The last two years of the pandemic have been especially difficult for performing artists. As such, we are proceeding this year with unparalleled enthusiasm."

- Mr. B 

Mark Braun is a blues, jazz, and boogie woogie pianist, a major advocate of an essential form of American music, and the founder of Mr. B's Joybox Express, a 501c3 organization that raises funds for children's arts and athletic programs through musical events.
