Martin Luther Mccoy Plays Marvin Gaye
February 1 @ 8:00 PM PST
“San Francisco native and acclaimed vocalist/musician Martin Luther McCoy is the epitome of style and cool” and that is why Yoshis has welcomed Martin to kick off his 2022 schedule of Marvin Gaye shows in Oakland. “It’s always a challenge to do anything with the music of the greats. Some of us might be charged with holding the torch and keeping it alive in the now and not just in samples or clips of something from yesterday.”
Martin Luther refuses to confine himself to any one creative pursuit. An ambassador for hip hop soul and current SFJazz Collective member, he continues to serve as a conduit for black funk, rock and social activation music. On the cusp of releasing his fourth full- length studio album, a self-titled LP of original material, Luther, having always been a fan of the musical styles of Marvin Gaye, has dedicated a suite of songs for the commemoration of the release of Marvin’s most popular album, ‘What’s Going On’.
