Through April 14, 2019 - New York

A protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, Sandoval was born in Artemisa, a small town in the outskirts of Havana, Cuba, on November 6, 1949, just two years after Gillespie became the first musician to bring Latin influences into American Jazz. Sandoval began studying classical trumpet at the age of twelve, but it didn't take him long to catch the excitement of the jazz world. He has since evolved into one of the world's most acknowledged guardians of jazz trumpet and flugelhorn, as well as a renowned classical artist, pianist and composer. He is one of the most dynamic and vivacious live performers of our time, and has been seen by millions at the Oscars, at the Grammy Awards, and the Billboard Awards.

April 16, 2019 - 2nd floor New York

With over fifteen years of touring to date, The Quebe Sisters have delivered their authentic triple fiddle and three-part harmony sound to the concert halls and festivals of North America, Europe, and Russia. Grace, Sophia, and Hulda Quebe front an innovative Progressive Western Swing band of archtop guitar, upright bass, fiddles and sibling harmony. The Dallas-based five-piece presents a unique Americana blend of Western Swing, Jazz-influenced Swing, Country, Texas-Style Fiddling, and Western music. "We differentiate our music as 'Progressive Western Swing' from simply 'Western Swing' because we aren't trying to sound just like Bob Wills," Grace Quebe explains. "Instead, we continue his vision, playing the style he pioneered in an authentic way by incorporating new genres and songs, interpreting them using our own unique voice through Country instrumentation." The band's stripped-down acoustic instrumentation breathes new life into seasoned sounds once found in Texas dance halls and honky-tonks. Grace continues, "To us, preserving the tradition of Western Swing isn't about keeping something alive like a relic. Western Swing has always been about inånovation." Innovation has le...

In between their travels, the band also found time to open twice for LOCASH in the Boston area.

.the lovechild of John Prine and Mitch Hedberg with a vagabond troubadour edge." – The Stranger "The record opens with the shanty-like Dylan-meets-Prine number "Virgin Guitar," which displays Craigie's talent for understated singing coupled with poetic lyrics." – The Portland Tribune "Craigie's latest, "I Am California," is haunting, poetic, and just how a longing for California should sound. Draped in nostalgia and covered in memories, Craigie paints a beautiful homage to the Golden State, with the assistance of singer Gregory Alan Isakov." – Impose Magazine "You can be sure I'll be on the lookout for anything he does from now on." - No Depression ***LONG BIO*** Renowned for his eloquent Americana style, engaging live shows, and off-the-cuff clever observations, John Craigie carries on the legacy of classic singer-songwriters, while blazing a trail of his own. Recently, that trail twisted and turned into new territory for the Portland, OR performer who The Stranger appropriately dubbed, "the lovechild of John Prine and Mitch Hedberg." His music speaks loud to both audiences and fellow artists. Todd Snider notably hand-delivered a gift on-stage, and Chuck Norris has sent fan m... (read more)

Terence Blanchard ft The E-Collective - Blue Note
Through April 21, 2019 - New York

Music and art have the power to change hearts and souls," expresses composer and trumpeter Terence Blanchard — a belief brought to life through the music of Blanchard and his E-Collective. This revolutionary ensemble thrives off the perfect mixture of Blanchard's genius and the innovations of four young musical pioneers: guitarist Charles Altura, pianist Fabian Almazan, bassist David "DJ" Ginyard Jr., and drummer Oscar Seaton. It was while recording the scores for Spike Lee's Inside Man and Kasi Lemmons' Talk to Me that Blanchard and Seaton first dreamt of a band that layered grooves teeming with funk, R&B, and blues colors. Years later, that dream came to fruition and formed the foundation for the E-Collective's signature sound.
