Jazz tribute to American jazz saxophonist and composer Wayne Shorter. This special holiday jazz concert will be held in the new Crosstown Arts Theater as fourth “mic check” event, testing the sound and lighting in the new space. Line-up to be announced soon!
The Crosstown Jazz Series, presented by Strictly Jazz Entertainment in collaboration with Crosstown Arts, is designed to salute classic jazz music as contemporary musicians perform the work of the legends.
The Groove is a series showcasing some of the funkiest bands and musicians around. In this event, the band — rather than the lead singer or frontman — is the star. This month: Paul Taylor & The Hi-Jacks
Each month will feature performances in the premier listening environment, The Green Room — Crosstown Arts’ new venue for live music. Find your groove as we highlight an array of both well-known and little-known musicians.
