FELIX CAVALIERE (Rock)

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Cavaliere fronted the Young Rascals, those paragons of "blue-eyed soul" who released some of the most defining songs of the ‘60’s with indelible originals and energized covers led by Cavaliere's Hammond organ and lead vocals.

These days, Cavaliere typically performs songs from a playlist of 19 chart-topping Rascals’ hits including "Mustang Sally," “Good Lovin’”, "Groovin’” and the Rascals' biggest hit, "People Got to Be Free.” www.felixcavaliere.com

LEZ ZEPPELIN (Rock)

As a courtesy to patrons, wine and beer will be served at this event.

With musicianship that exceeds all expectations, out-there swagger and gender-bending audacity, NYC’s all-girl quartet is critically acclaimed as one of the most exciting live acts and the first female rock band to pay homage to Led Zeppelin.

Their skillful renditions of Zeppelin’s music serve as the authentic female counterpart to Zeppelin; their recent album, Lez Zeppelin is a true-to-life recreation of Zeppelin’s 1969 debut. www.lezzeppelin.com

SWINGLE SINGERS (a cappella)

"Everything about the Swingles is flawless." - Los Angeles Times.

Music from 50 years of Swingle history and contemporary artists inspire the Swingle Singers to push the boundaries with their versions of trendsetting British bands Elbow and Mumford and Sons, as well as classic favorites like Björk, the Beatles and Bach.

With their breathtaking new arrangements, haunting harmonies and epic beats, the Swingles bring an energy that’s new, contemporary, and relevant. www.swinglesingers.com

TCAN FOLK/ACOUSTIC OPEN MIC

The Folk/Acoustic Open Mic night at TCAN has been a tradition since the opening of The Center years ago. And we could try to describe this event by mentioning all the significant songwriters and talented musicians who have played and sung and captured a special moment in time.

But the TCAN Folk/Acoustic Open Mic night isn't about individuals so much as it is about a community. Everyone is welcome to perform – the event starts at 8pm but sign-up starts at 7:30pm. Hosted alternate weeks by Mark Stepakoff.
