Double Bill: Frank Varela & Upstream / Avi Wisnia

Event Date: 
Friday, April 12, 2013 - 8:00pm

FRANK VARELA & UPSTREAM are an extraordinary powerhouse jazz trio. UPSTREAM features three of the most talented musicians you will find anywhere: Frank Varela on guitar, Rick Marshall on drums and vocals, Bob Laramie on bass. With an ever-growing fan base, this band is leaving a lasting impression everywhere they play. Mind-boggling improvisational excursions and jaw-dropping solos are their "stock & trade".

Singer-songwriter AVI WISNIA presents an eclectic mix of refreshingly original songs, finding inspiration in classic Brazilian bossa nova, acoustic American folk, 1950’s west-coast jazz, and contemporary pop. Think Ben Folds meets Norah Jones, if they had a lovechild in Brazil. A wordsmith as well as a composer and performer, Avi’s clever lyrics give a knowing nod to those that came before, while his smooth vocals and deft piano skills assure you that this is truly something new.

Tickets: $10
