Tabari Lake Group
Born on the island of St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, Tabari Lake began his journey as a musician on the steel drums. A product of the Virgin Islands' public school system, he also learned to play the clarinet and tuba as needed in his school band. While in middle school, Tabari was introduced to the bass guitar, and by high school he decided that this was the instrument for him and pursued it as such.
Tabari attended the Interlochen Arts Camp during the summers of 2010 and 2011 where world-renowned jazz bassist Rodney Whitaker introduced him to the double bass. In his desire to develop as a bassist, Tabari applied for and received a scholarship from Interlochen Arts Academy to further his classical and jazz studies at the academy from which he graduated in 2012. Tabari then received Berklee College of Music’s Presidential Scholarship in the fall of 2012. Tabari graduated from Berklee in 2016 with his bachelor's degrees in Performance as well as Contemporary Writing & Production, and in 2017 with his master's in Contemporary Performance (Production Concentration). In the spring of 2019, Tabari was selected as the Santa Monica 18th Street Art Center’s 2019 Make Jazz Fellow.
Tabari has performed with artists such as Terence Blanchard, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Joey Alexander, Victor Provost, Russell Gunn's Royal Krunk Jazz Orkestra, Dion Parson, Ron Blake, Tia Fuller, Donald Harrison, and Theo Croker amongst others.
