Michael Arenella Quintet

Personnel:
Michael Arenella – Trombone and Vocal
Nicholas Hempton – Alto Saxophone
Nat Harris – Guitar
Yoshi Waki – Bass
Dan Aran – Drums

While making a living busking in the subway upon his arrival to NYC in 1998, Michael Arenella made a name as he immersed himself in the virginal Jazz of the 1920s. He learned to play the cornet and to croon. This immersion went on to give birth to a cultural phenomenon, a good decade before it became wildly popular in popular culture: the rebirth of the Roaring ‘20s. Almost as soon as the tens of thousands began pouring through the gates of his now famous Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governors Island, a restlessness started to beckon Arenella toward his next pursuit. The pandemic of 2020 galvanized this. A year without a place to be, a sense of purpose indefinitely suspended, gave him the opportunity to reunite after 15 years with his first and natural voice: the trombone. With this, the desire to travel further down the line musically; to evolve through challenge - became an urgent need. Though Arenella is now focused on expression untethered to one era, his sense swing and soul very much remain his timeless obsession.

Stacy Dillard started playing the saxophone at a rather late age. Stacy attended college at Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio to study with Dr. William Denza, Jim Smith, Chris Berg, and Lenard Moses. Very quickly, Dillard acquired the necessary knowledge that would soon put his name out on the local scene. It was a run-in with Wynton Marsalis in Dayton, Ohio that would turn his attention to the New York Scene. After graduation, Stacy took the act to Cincinnati, where he stayed for a short time and made his first recording appearance with Mike Wade on trumpet, drummer Melvin Broach and pianist William Menefield. Stacy then made his way to New York City where he has been playing saxophone ever since.
