J.D. Warren and the Rudiments at Ayres Center

Arts & Entertainment

On Saturday, Nov. 2, from 9:30 p.m. to midnight, J.D. Warren and the Rudiments, featuring class of 2003 vocalist Dermel Warren, will perform at the Ayres Multi-Cultural Center, located at 14 Willie Six Rd. 

The Rudiment is a NYC based jazz group led by husband and wife duo, Jeremy & Dermel Warren. We are pleased to welcome Dermel Warren, C’03, back to campus as the lead vocalist.

The Rudiment, formed in 2015, has performed in top venues in New York and vicinities, including the Blue Note, Minton’s Harlem Club Bonafide, and the Cornelia Street Café. They placed third in the highly competitive “Made in New York Jazz Competition.”

Drummer Jeremy Warren composes and arranges for the group while Dermel handles the lyrical compositions. They both were born and raised in the South, (Memphis and Little Rock,) and bring their deep soul and gospel influence to create their own unique style of jazz.

The event is free and open to the public. Coffee, tea and pastries will be served. For information, contact <ebenjami@sewanee.edu>.
