Breaking Up is Hard to Do

Next date: Jul 18, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

Set at a Catskills resort during the 1960 Labor Day weekend, the script focuses on the shenanigans that abound onstage and behind the scenes at Esther’s Paradise Resort in the Catskills.

This sweetly comic story of Lois and Marge follows two friends from Brooklyn in search of good times and romance over one wild Labor Day weekend. The score showcases 18 Neil Sedaka classics, including "Where the Boys Are", "Sweet Sixteen", "Calendar Girl", "Love Will Keep Us Together", and of course, the chart-topping title song.

Marge and her stagestruck best friend Lois arrive at Esther's Paradise on a vacation that was intended to be Marge's honeymoon — until the groom left her at the altar. Lois attempts to console Marge by setting her up with the resort's handsome, self-obsessed singer Del Delmonaco.

But her plans backfire when Del mistakenly assumes that Marge's father can further his ambitions to become the next teen heartthrob on American Bandstand. Gazing forlornly at Marge from the wings is geekish cabana boy and aspiring songwriter Gabe.

When he isn't entertaining the guests with classic, but still comical Borscht Belt shtick, house comic Harvey secretly carries a torch for widowed resort owner Esther, who is more preoccupied trying to keep her resort open.

Eddie Turner & Trouble

Saturday, Jul 21, 2018 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM - English

Eddie Turner has done just about everything. A guitarist since age 12, he honed his skills alongside San Francisco’s legendary Tracy Nelson & Mother Earth in the ’70s and Denver’s hard-hitting Zephyr in the ’80s, before becoming a founding member of the Otis Taylor Band in the ’90s and then earning a prestigious Blues Music Award nomination for his own solo career in the mid-2000s.

The Denver-based guitarist, singer and bandleader has toured the world, garnering countless fans and an outpouring of critical acclaim in the process.

Fitting for a man who grew up outside of Chicago watching iconic blues figures such as Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf ply their trade — but also seeing acts like Jimi Hendrix and Cream take the music to new, more rock-influenced directions — Turner has developed a sound that’s informed by tradition yet adventurous enough to not be limited by it. As the man himself puts it, “If you want to be a purist, be one not because you started there and stopped there. Be one because you went everywhere else and decided to come back. Because no music is truly pure. Everything has a little dirt in it.”

Music by Jed Feuer and book and lyrics by Boyd Graham.

In this whirlwind musical, two comedy writers try to raise enough “dough” for the most historically expansive show ever conceived, about the ENTIRE history of the universe. In a record 90 minutes, both actors are put to the test as they try to convince their potential theatrical backers (the audience) that this insane frivolity is somehow worthy of the authors’ unrealistic hopes and aspirations. The Big Bang has become the most asked about show in our 30-year history, and yes, we’re bringing it back with a BANG just for you!

Saxophonist, composer, orchestrator, producer, scholar, professor, and leader Ed Calle is known for his extraordinary ability to sight-read, interpret, and perform vitally any musical style.

Throughout the globe, his peers and colleagues often laud his versatility. For example, while outside the Blue Note in New York City sharing some time with his mentor and friend Michael Brecker, fans asked Michael about being the most recorded saxophonist in history. Becker smiled, look at his pupil, and stated, “thanks, but Ed’s probably on as many or more records. He records a lot for American artists and we don’t see a lot of those credits. Regardless, in my estimation, Ed is likely the most versatile saxophonist on the planet.” Longtime mentor and collaborator Arturo Sandoval more succinctly affirms, “we call Calle – the monster.”

Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Calle can be heard on more than 1,200 albums, almost 9,000 singles, and countless movie and television soundtracks both as a soloist, sideman, composer, arranger, conductor, and producer. Dr. Calle is a Latin Grammy Award winner for Best Instrumental Album (2015) with "Dr. Ed Calle Presents Mamblu."

Dr. Calle was awarded the 2015 Miami-Dade County Mayor’s Medal, named www.facultyawards.org 2014 Outstanding Professor at Miami Dade College (college wide), and 2014 United Teachers of Dade Champion Of Education for Arts and Entertainment. Music courtesy of KCC Productions.

HENCE, the “refiring”! Jeffrey, Michael and Randi have decided to run with the opportunity to create a new and exciting project called THE WILDFIRE BAND.

Bomba Estereo

Saturday, Aug 11, 2018 at 7:30 PM - English

Coming to you all the way live from Bogotá, Colombia, Bomba Estéreo’s psychedelic cumbia mix creates a space where transcendent vibes and grooves meet up in one place. According to the band’s founder Simón Mejía, that was the artistic thrust behind "Amanecer," the band’s GRAMMY-nominated album which has received rave reviews from NPR to Rolling Stone and Pitchfork to Billboard.

Bomba Estéreo is an international touring machine with recent dates on the world’s biggest stages. The group have toured across 40 countries,four continents and played major festivals like Glastonbury, Coachella, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Sonar, Roskilde, Vive Latino, among many others.

“Bomba Estéreo is a night out in a tropical dance club, but I like how we combined that with Liliana singing about very deep emotions about spirituality and change,” said the beat-maker/keyboardist Mejia. “Amanecer is a very luminous album, a very positive album.”

In a sense Amanecer is a logical progression from Bomba’s already established track record in fusing the electro-boogie/hiphop soundtrack of their millennial youth with the tropical folkloric legacy of their homeland’s elders. From their early success with their first hit single “Fuego”—a cumbia/house/hiphop/reggae jam--to the lush dance/pop grooves of 2013’s Elegancia Tropical, the band has been on an ever-evolving mission of hemispheric musical convergence.

Amanecer is Bomba’s first album for Sony, an extremely fruitful collaboration between Mejía, lead singer Liliana “Li” Samuet, and LA-based veteran producer Ricky Reed (Pitbull, Hason Derulo, Jesse J). “We liked the idea of working with someone who wasn’t really involved deeply with Latin music,” said Mejía. Reed’s collaboration with the band was seamless and organic, providing a new color and energy to the band’s sound. Li, who grew up inspired by equal parts of Colombian folklore, hiphop, Radiohead, and Bjork, felt Reed “made me do a lot of new things with melody and opened my mind a lot.”

From the hectic house of the title track to the EDM-meets-champeta anarchy of “Caderas,” “Soy Yo,” “Voy,” and “Fiesta,” this sleek new version of Bomba Estéreo ripples with the edgy tension of staying out to the wee hours on a dancefloor. “Fiesta,” the album’s first single is particularly explosive, with its catchy deconstruction of carnival in the Caribbean port city of Barranquilla, a Mardi Gras party second only to Rio’s in intensity. Marching band drums n’ bass meet Li’s distorted vocals in a hallucinogenic dance of demonic disguises and party all night imperatives.

But Amanecer is no one-night stand. It’s an album that represents the culmination of so many years of experimentation and wild groove-swapping that has come to blossom in a strong, authentic international pop sound. It shows that no matter how much some people are obsessed with borders, these artificial divisions are unraveling as we speak, and as we listen and dance to the global-identity sound of Bomba Estereo.

Yo-Yo Ma Plays Bach*

Sunday, Aug 12, 2018 at 7:00 PM - English

Don’t miss this extraordinary evening devoted to Yo Yo Ma’s journey performing Bach’s complete cello suites – a two-year project that will bring these works to a limited number of locations on six continents. It is a journey motivated not only by the music’s significance in his life — it is among the very first he ever played — but also by Bach’s ability to speak universally. Yo-Yo Ma believes that at a moment when our world is challenged by the pace of change and the strain it can create, audiences old and new will find shared meaning in this music. He has said that when “Bach’s music touches us, it reconnects us to our common humanity.” The New Yorker described his performance of the suites as "The loveliest experience of my listening year … it was as if music had stilled the world.”

Tal Cohen

Friday, Aug 24, 2018 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM - English

Tal Cohen’s unique piano style owes its roots to the Jewish folk songs and classical music he played in his formative years growing up in Israel.

After moving to Perth at the age of 16, Tal received a music scholarship at Churchlands Senior High School. Upon graduating, he continued his music studies at the prestigious Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, where he completed his Bachelor degree jazz performance.

Tal began performing nationally in 2010 with his involvement in the successful Australian tour of the Jamie Oehlers Quartet, which included shows at Sydney’s 505 and Melbourne’s Bennett’s Lane and Uptown jazz clubs. In the same year he also performed with New York saxophonist, George Garzone.

In July 2011, Tal performed at the Melbourne Jazz Festival in the “Jamie Oehlers Quartet” which featured Australia’s Jamie Oehlers on saxophone as well as highly acclaimed New York drummer Ari Hoenig, and Sam Anning on bass. The group then went on to record the album “Smoke and Mirrors” after which the group toured around Australia in August 2012.

Consisting largely of original tunes, it showcases some of Perth’s finest musicians with Jamie Oehlers on saxophone, Chris Tarr on drums and Pete Jeavons on bass. The album enjoyed an enthusiastic reception from local audiences and the Australian newspaper gave it an impressive 4-star review. The album has already had extensive radio airplay in Australia and on radio stations around Los Angeles and was also featured in full length on Israeli radio station, Reshet Bet in April 2012. To promote the album, Tal teamed up with Oehlers again and in October 2012 the duo played shows in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, joined by highly acclaimed musicians in each city to complete the quartet.

In May 2013 Tal performed a number of shows with world-renowned saxophonist Joe Lovano at the inaugural Perth International Jazz Festival, including a sold-out performance at the Perth Concert Hall to a 1000-large audience.

Guitar Shorty

  • David Abrams- Guitar
  • Dan Gerass– Drums
  • Christopher Jones– Bass
  • Malcolm Lukens– Keyboard, Left-hand bass and vocals

Legendary guitarist/vocalist Guitar Shorty is a giant in the blues world. Compared to both Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Guy, Guitar Shorty has been electrifying audiences for five decades with his supercharged live shows and his incendiary recordings. Like a bare-knuckled boxer, Shorty strikes with his blistering, physical guitar playing and his fierce vocals, connecting directly with body and soul. What really sets shorty apart is his unpredictable, off-the-wall guitar playing. He reaches for sounds, riffs and licks that other blues players wouldn’t even think of.

Through the years, Shorty has performed with blues and R&B luminaries like Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, B. B. King, Guitar Slim and T-Bone Walker. He Started playing with these legends while still in his teens and recorded a handful of singles for a variety of labels and an obscure LP during the first 30 years of his career. After decades of paying his dues, it took a tour a England to establish shorty’s fame in his home country. His recordings since then all received massive critical acclaim, and his renowned live performance have kept him constantly in demand all over the world. His 2004 Alligator Records debut, Watch Your Back, became his best-received, best-selling album to date. His 2006 follow-up, We The People, won the coveted Blues Music Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album Of The Year. Now, with his new CD, Bare Knuckle, Guitar Shorty unleashes a barrage of hard-hitting combinations of guitar, vocals and lyrics, hitting his listeners with some of the most awe-inspiring and vocal work of his long career.

Produced by veteran Los-Angeles songwriter and bassist Wyzard, Bare Knuckle finds Guitar Shorty singing and playing with ferocious urgency and a fierce righteousness. Bare Knuckle’s blues burns with heavy rock and roll fire from start to finish, putting Shorty’s infectious energy and guitar pyrotechnics on full display. From the up-to-the-minute “Please Mr. President” to the celebratory “Texas Women” to the politically charged “Slow Burn,” Guitar Shorty has created an album that is as memorable for its menacing, slashing guitar work as it is for its defiant vocals and hard-rocking spirit.

In a major feature in Texas Music Magazine, writer John Morthland summed things up perfectly, saying “Axebuster extraordinaire guitar Shorty is an old-school guitar showman. He plays the technique and flash, without ever sacrificing the passion. He’s a blues-rock hero.” GuitarOne declared, “be prepared for a mighty surprise if you are tired of the same old blues and have never heard Guitar Shorty rip. With his harmonically saturated tone, soaring sustain, lethal licks and heavyweight blues-rock grooves, shorty is not the be overlooked.” Now, with bare Knuckles and his one-two punch of blistering guitar work and passionate vocal, his combination of lyrically deep songs and one-of-a-kind live shows, Guitar Shorty proves again that he is one of today’s true, undisputed heavyweight champions of the blues.

Georges is the owner of the La Cage Aux Folles nightclub, which features a drag show starring his partner and the love of his life, Albin. After twenty years of un-wedded bliss, Georges and his partner Albin face the hardest challenge of their relationship, yet: meeting their son, Jean-Michel’s fiance’s parents. Albin has always raised Jean-Michel, Georges’ biological son, as his own. But when Jean-Michel falls in love and becomes engaged to the daughter of an ultra-conservative, anti-gay politician, Georges feels compelled to try to present a more “traditional” family to Jean-Michel’s potential in-laws. When Albin tries and fails to take on a masculine persona in the role of Uncle Al, he gets more creative in order to find a way to be part of the “meet the parents” experience. Based on Jean Poiret’s 1973 French play of the same name, the multi-Tony award-winning La Cage Aux Folles is a musical filled with delightful spectacle and great heart.

Greg Diamond & Nuance Quartet

Friday, Sep 21, 2018 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM - English

Critically acclaimed guitarist, composer, and bandleader Greg Diamond creates music inspired by Latin American sounds and rhythms which he seamlessly infuses into the context of contemporary jazz — with modal harmonies, compound meters, and various other elements that comprise the vibrant and dynamic musical tapestry of his native city of New York. All About Jazz hails Diamond, who is of mixed Colombian and Jewish origin, as “a rising star in the New York jazz scene..”Latin Jazz Network writes that Diamond is a “composer of great maturity and genius” and featured his sophomore release “Conduit” [Dot Time 2012] as an Editor’s Pick for “Best Albums of 2012”. Indeed, Diamond has cultivated a distinguishable sound with his own his writing, a crack ensemble, and his use of the electric guitar — an instrument not often associated with this genre.

Diamond and his group have been seen performing at numerous premier New York venues such as: The Blue Note, Iridium Jazz Club, Joe’s Pub, Smalls Jazz Club, Zinc Bar, and Nublu; not to mention numerous festival presentations, among them: The Madrid International Jazz Festival, Barranquijazz Festival, Jimmy Glass Jazz Festival, Teatro Libre Jazz Festival, Medejazz Festival, Jazz al Parque Festival, and the Nublu Jazz Festival. In 2007 he was a semi-finalist at The Gibson International Jazz Guitar Competition hosted by The Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, where he performed before jazz guitar legend George Benson.

Ghost Town Blues Band

Saturday, Sep 22, 2018 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM - English

Recently featured at Montreal Jazz Festival, Beale Street’s latest success story, #4 on the 2018 Billboard Blues Charts (wk 9), 2016 Independent Blues Award winner for “Best Contemporary Blues Song”, 2015 Blues Blast Music Award Nominee for “Best Blues Band” and 2014 International Blues Challenge Runner-up is Ghost Town Blues Band. Not your grandpa’s blues band, their live show has been captivating audiences in the U.S. and Canada with a second-line horn entrance, cigar box guitars and electric push brooms to Allman Brothers style jams and even a hip-hop trombone player.

Horns, harmonies and homegrown instruments combined with an energetic and roots rich festival set makes Ghost Town Blues Band one of the “must see live bands on the festival circuit today.” Both Preston McEwen behind the drums and Matt Karner on the bass guitar are a punishing rhythm section behind multi-instrumentalist/ frontman Matt Isbell with raunchy cigar box guitar licks and raspy “Dr. John-like, whiskey and gravel-soaked vocals.” With the addition of Trombonist Suavo Jones, Tim Stanek on B3 and Taylor Orr on lead guitar, the grooves go from funky to “funk-nasty” as the band gains more notoriety in the blues festival and jam circuit. Ghost Town Blues Band performed across North America at over 24 festivals in 2016 and already have 25 festivals and 12 international tours booked for 2017/2018.

Death Cab for Cutie

Monday, Oct 22, 2018 at 7:00 PM - English

Death Cab for Cutie's rise from small-time solo project to Grammy-nominated rock band is one of indie rock's greatest success stories. Launched in the bayside college town of Bellingham, Washington, the group was originally a side project for singer/guitarist Ben Gibbard, an engineering student at Western Washington University who split his time between school and music. Taking a break from his local power pop band, Pinwheel, Gibbard began recording an album's worth of solo material during the summer of 1997. Producer Chris Walla lent his help to the sessions, which resulted in an eight-song cassette entitled “You Can Play These Songs with Chords”. When the tape became a local hit, Gibbard reached into his circle of friends to form a band, hoping to play the new songs live. Bassist Nick Harmer and drummer Nathan Good climbed aboard, and Walla enlisted as the band's primary guitarist (he would also go on to produce most of the band's future releases). Gibbard's group rechristened itself Death Cab for Cutie (named after a song by the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band) and signed a contract with the Seattle-based Barsuk Records within a year's time.

The quartet made its studio debut with 1998's “Something About Airplanes”, an album that featured several re-recorded tracks from the Chords cassette as well as a dreamy, pop-oriented sound reminiscent of Built to Spill. Gibbard and Walla both continued to pursue their own projects, but that didn't keep Death Cab for Cutie from returning to the studio for a second album, “We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes”, which appeared in 2000. Nathan Good left the group just prior to the album's completion, and We Have the Facts introduced Michael Schorr as Death Cab's new drummer.

The polished, hook-laden “Transatlanticism” arrived in 2003 and announced the arrival of drummer Jason McGerr, who had previously played in a band with Nick Harmer. The album proved to be a very important step in the band's career, gathering positive attention from consumers and industry execs. With their popularity at an all-time high, the bandmates issued a live disc, “The John Byrd E.P.”, and later signed a worldwide major-label deal with Atlantic Records in November 2004.

“Plans” was released the following summer and debuted at number four, remaining on the Billboard charts for nearly one year and achieving platinum status on the strength of three singles (including the acoustic ballad "I Will Follow You into the Dark"). Death Cab for Cutie earned a Grammy nomination for their major-label debut. Death Cab returned in May 2008 with “Narrow Stairs”, a darker effort that debuted at the top of the Billboard 200.

In conversation, it’s obvious that the members of Death Cab for Cutie are still each other’s biggest fans. More important, they genuinely enjoy making music with each other and being in a band together. Their only motivation is to create music they like – and to impress and satisfy each other. Theirs might not be a controversial rock & roll story – but it is one rooted in stable, supportive brotherhood.

John Scofield

Saturday, Mar 16, 2019 at 7:45 PM - English

"Scofield combines the chess-champ braininess of his solos with a taste for standard song forms and expansive bursts of volume; a manna for the straight-ahead jazz fan." - The Boston Phoenix

Iconic Grammy Award winning guitarist John Scofield teams up with pianist Gerald Clayton, bassist Vicente Archer, and drummer Bill Stewart in a new band that builds upon Scofield's long legacy of masterful improvisation and stylistic diversity. Since the late 1970's, Scofield has been a major influence on jazz, continuously finding new and exciting avenues to reinvent himself as an artist. In recent years, Scofield won two consecutive Best Jazz Album Grammy Awards for Past Present and Country For Old Men for which he also won the Grammy Award for Best Instrumental solo - and has received resounding critical acclaim for his 2017 release Hudson with all-star bandmates Jack DeJohnette, Larry Grenadier, and John Medeski. Now, joined by three formidable artists in their own right, Scofield's new band showcases an intricate interpretation of jazz's limitless direction.

Kurt Elling Quintet

Saturday, May 18, 2019 at 7:45 PM - English

"Since the mid-1990s, no singer in jazz has been as daring, dynamic or interesting as Kurt Elling. With his soaring vocal flights, his edgy lyrics and sense of being on a musical mission, he has come to embody the creative spirit in jazz." - The Washington Post

GRAMMY winner Kurt Elling is among the world's foremost jazz vocalists. He won the DownBeat Critics Poll for fourteen consecutive years and was named "Male Singer of the Year" by the Jazz Journalists Association on eight occasions. An international jazz award winner, he has also been GRAMMY nominated a dozen times.

Elling's rich baritone spans four octaves and features both astonishing technical mastery and emotional depth. His repertoire includes original compositions and modern interpretations of standards, all of which are springboards for inspired improvisation, scatting, spoken word, and poetry.

An Evening with Raul Midón & the Lionel Loueke Trio

Saturday, Jun 15, 2019 at 8:00 PM - English

Genre-bending icons Raul Midón and Lionel Loueke join forces to present a special night of incredible guitar and vocal wizardry. The acclaimed instrumentalists-singers will perform individual sets of original material in an evening that will culminate in an unforgettable jam backed by Loueke's dynamic Gilfema trio (bassist Massimo Biolcati and drummer Ferenc Nemeth).

Raul Midón is celebrated as one of music's most distinctive and searching voices. Heralded as a "one-man band who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus," (NY Times), Midón has collaborated with Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder and even Snoop Dogg. Blind since birth, Midón produced-engineered his Grammy-nominated album, Bad Ass and Blind (Mack Avenue Records), that confronts the challenges of blindness and musical composition.

Lionel Loueke, in part due to his West African roots and world music experience, brings influences to jazz that color his unique phrasing as a guitarist and vocalist. A Herbie Hancock protégé for the past 10 years, Loueke has also recorded and toured with varied instrumentalists and vocalists from far and wide. Praised by Hancock as "a musical painter", Loueke combines harmonic complexity, soaring melody, a deep knowledge of African folk forms, and unconventional guitar techniques to create a warm and evocative personal sound.

The Forgotten Kingdom: Guy Mendilow Ensemble

Saturday, Nov 16, 2019 at 7:30 PM - English

The Forgotten Kingdom's intertwining music and storytelling conjure voices from Sephardic communities lost to war and upheaval. It's an evocative trek through former Ottoman lands during the turmoil of the 1920's and 30's, during the rise of fascism. Rendering stories and songs of an older age with drama, humor and heart, The Forgotten Kingdom finds highly resonant, deeply moving connections to contemporary struggles, debates, and dilemmas.

The Forgotten Kingdom tells of the ending of an age, one whose passing begins with the traumas of the Great War and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and whose definitive ending is ushered in by WWII. With sand animation, the tale will be told through glimpses and impressions captured in a book of memories found by a daring refugee girl upon her return to her ruined village in 1944. She does not know whose sketches these are. But in the pages she sees her own story, and that of her family. The sketches capture day-to-day life, from the final decades of the 19th century, on through the onset of WWI and ultimately chronicling the disillusion, betrayal and heartache that turned neighbor upon neighbor and covered entire communities with a 'shroud of oblivion' as tens of thousands were deported to camps like Auschwitz.The book is not complete. The show poses a hopeful question: How do you pick up the pieces? The show ends with the girl's determination to continue the story. As she embarks on a new beginning, she adds her own sketches to the book. The Forgotten Kingdom springs from Sephardi women's songs from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. All music is in the endangered Ladino language, a combination of archaic Spanish with Turkish and Greek. The narration is in English. The show weaves its tale impressionistically, through a series of vignettes with recurring characters and themes. The addition of Kseniya Simonova's captivating, nuanced visual storytelling will enable the show to reverberate on deeper levels.
