VINTAGE VOCAL QUARTET



The Vintage Vocal Quartet brings to life the sweet harmonies of the big band era. And they do it while providing their own swinging instrumental accompaniment.


The group's repertoire is inspired by groups like the Glenn Miller Orchestra's Modernaires, the Nat King Cole Trio, the Delta Rhythm Boys, the Andrews Sisters, and the Tommy Dorsey band's Pied Pipers. Singers who came out of this hothouse of vocal talent include Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Mel Tormé, Connee Boswell, Jo Stafford, and so many more.


The four singers of the VVQ also play instruments, so they pack a big sound into a small package. The members are:


Taylor O'Donnell - voice/piano

David Thorne Scott - voice/bass

Daniel Henderson - voice/trumpet

Paul Pampinella - voice/guitar


If you love vocal harmony and swing music, the Vintage Vocal Quartet has your number!

RHYTHM FUTURE QUARTET


The acclaimed Rhythm Future Quartet returns with a concert to kick off the announcement of the 2nd annual Django By The Sea Gypsy Jazz Festival dates and line-up. 


Rhythm Future Quartet is an acoustic jazz ensemble with a straightforward agenda: to keep the spirit of Gypsy jazz alive and expanding in today’s musical universe. The virtuosic foursome, named for a Django Reinhardt tune, offers up a newly minted sound, influenced by the classic Hot Club of France, yet wholly contemporary. Led by violinist Jason Anick and guitarist Olli Soikkeli, the quartet performs dynamic and lyrical arrangements of both Gypsy jazz standards and original compositions that draw upon diverse international rhythms and musical idioms. With Max O’Rourke on second guitar and Greg Loughman on bass, Rhythm Future is dedicated to expanding the boundaries of a vital musical genre.

SOGGY PO BOYS


We don't have to tell you, this is one of the most fun dance parties in town. It's hot, it's fun and it's packed! Tickets sell fast, get 'em in advance.

With a repertoire of New Orleans standards, spirituals, contemporary music, and swing tunes, the Po’ Boys offer a lively blend of fun and insanity. Sure, it’s served messy, but at the heart of the mess is a sincerity for sprightly composed tunes that are accessible to absolutely anyone that hears it. New Orleans music is supposed to be messy. It’s supposed to be steeped in feeling. When you feel music, you find the real beauty behind what makes music so mesmerizingly addicting. That’s exactly what the Po’ Boys are producing. Their music is enduring. It’s infectious. It’s inviting. It’s irresistible. Don’t let their birthplace fool you. The beauty of New Orleans music is that it’s celebrated and appreciated everywhere. From the street corner, to the communing pub, to the theater, The Po’ Boys are doing their part to spread the tasteful soundtrack of the greatest music on the planet from their roost in the Northeast and while out on the road touring the country. 

The Soggy Po' Boys are:

Eric Klaxton-Saxophone

Zach Lange-Trumpet

Nick Mainella-Saxophone

Mike Effenberger-Piano

Stu Dias-Guitar and Vocals

Brett Gallo-Drums

Nicholas Phaneuf-Bass
