Lineups for Oct. and Nov. will include:
Fri., Oct. 24 Frank Singer with saxophonist Stan Bialomizy. Once described by pianist/singer Mary Alice Brown as Erie's "hidden treasure," Stan has played on the national as well as the local scene for many years, as a soloist with the Benny Goodman legacy band, a favored sideman in many jazz groups and shows, as "the guy with a great sound who can read like a whiz and play anything."
Sat., Oct. 25 The Monk's Brew. A quartet playing jazz and pop standards in a style oriented toward listeners, this band is rapidly rising in popularity in the Erie area. Germinated in sessions as classmates at Mercyhurst University, the band persists beyond its origins.
Fri., Oct. 31 Frank Singer with bassist Steve Trohoske. Steve is one of Erie's premier bassists, known for his original, informed playing. He's a serious student of jazz and related grooves, and fluent in a wide variety of styles -- dub, Reggae, avant jazz, Black Rock, funk, post funk, and more. Also known for his ability to compose great groups out of seemingly disparate elements.
Sat., Nov. 1 Vocalist Lydia Marks trio, with pianist Mark DeWalt and bassist Harry Jacobson. Marks is another returnee to Erie, having established a presence on the Las Vegas club scene, and appeared in venues across the U.S. Her latest CD, "Lovelight Shining" is titled after an original by Lydia. Now well known as one of the fine singers is our area.
