6-8pm: The Highliners - Jazz
The Highliners got together last summer to put their own swing on jazz standards and other popular tunes. Featuring Melissa Fogarty, vocals; Debra Kreisberg, alto saxophonist (both pictured); Steve Newman, piano; Adam Kahan, double bass; and Tommy Mattioli, drums; all members are established players on the New York City music scene and beyond. Collectively they have experience performing about every genre of music that exists, including latin jazz, klezmer, opera, early music, punk, surfer rock and ska with such groups as Groupo Latin Vibe, Los Mas Valientes, Jazz Musette, Metropolitan Klezmer, and New York City Opera. As the Highliners, they bring a fresh voice to the American Songbook and more.
