2016 Musical Residency: The Grays

February 24, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$5
The Grays

ELECTRIC GYPSY TRIBAL JAZZ

The Grays is an original jazz-funk music project, which mixes electrified gypsy jazz with odd-time tribal funk beats. The group features Justin Vood Good on guitar, Hans Lohse on percussion, accordion and vocals, Tracey Kroll on drums and electronica, Pat Burro on acoustic and electric bass, and Steve Fava on ambience sculpting and sound production. Grays offers deep grooves and dynamic improvisation for listening as well as dancing, and encourages audience participation.

Special Guest Joining Us Tonight: Chris Thompson. One of the top jazz salsa trumpet players in the NYC area, Chris is a powerful, deeply lyrical player with a gentle presence inside his propulsive energy, and an uncanny ability to get inside of our compositions and bring out inner richnesses. It’s a thrill and an honor to have him. His muted trumpet sound gives me Miles Davis chills down my spine.

The Grays will be performing on the second and fourth Wednesdays this spring starting January 13th sharing original works-in-progress and jams. Featuring special guest artists and dancers in a high-energy but chilled out vibe, in a cabaret style jazz lounge for Get-over-the-Hump Midweek Date Nights

All ages welcome. For more information about the Grays visit:
