Tickets $35 - $55* 7:00 show: Doors @ 6:00 9:30 show: Bar @ 6:00, Doors @ 8:40 Straight out of Kingston, Jamaica, and landing in the U.S. in 2007, Russell Hall has been setting the double bass on fire. With a foundation built at The Dillard Center for the Arts and honed at The Juilliard School. As New York City's bassist du jour, he's performed with the who's who of the music scene, from Barry Harris to Wynton Marsalis and from Jon Batiste to Roy Hargrove. Now, Russell is stirring the pot with his third album, "Deep Blue Sea," alongside the groundbreaking Bessie and the Rainbowkids. The album features a jazzy take on classic rock, blues, and soul, with an eccentric yet sultry take on sea shanties, American songbooks, and original material. It's Russell Hall like you've never heard him before, proving once again that jazz is a sea of endless possibilities. Joining this ensemble is the globally sought-after tap dance artist, Michela Marino Lerman, celebrated as a performer, choreographer, educator, and all-around creative spirit. Hailed by The Huffington Post as a "hurricane of rhythm" and dubbed a "prodigy" by The New York Times, her dancing ignites with flashes of brilliance. Don't miss her dynamic presence in this unforgettable performance. Band lineup: Russell Hall, double bass Esteban Castro, piano/keys Julian Briones, guitar Mike Troy, horns Matt Lee, drums Michela Marino Lerman on tap *plus 10% ticketing fee.
