In 2009, Graham Hawthorne, (Drums, Leader, Arranger), finished a year long world tour with Art-pop legend David Byrne. Finding himself home and without any immediate musical projects, he decided on a lark to put together a Big Band just for FUN. His roots were in Big Band and Jazz, and in the early days of his career he had worked with Jazz legends such as Ira Sullivan, Jon Hendricks, Dave Leibman, Randy Brecker, Hubert Laws. But that was long ago, and his career took a different path as he became one of the most in demand musicians in New York with credits as diverse as Paul Simon, Beyonce, Harry Belafonte, Suzanne Vega.

Venue Description: A throwback to the fabled days of New York nightclubs, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill features top-caliber music stars and an American Continental menu with a Southern flair. The Showcase Room has video screens and state-of-the-art sound, table seating, a bar where you can snack and listen, and a dance floor. The Beatles Brunch is offered every Saturday at noon (doors at 11am), and doors open for the Gospel Brunch every Sunday at 12:30pm with music at 1:30pm.
