Django Anniversary All-Star Jam Hosted By Benny Benack III
Saturday, September 24
10:30pm - 1am
Join Django veteran Benny Benack III as he leads an “All-Star” cast to celebrate our 7th Anniversary. We've curated a star-studded lineup and late-night jam session that will showcase many of our featured players from over the years.
Benny has established himself as one of the most versatile musical voices of his generation. Hailed by the New York Times as “a charismatic young trumpeter who maintains an earnest sideline as a singer,” Benack has a knack for delighting audiences in the spirit of classic crooners like Frank Sinatra and Mel Tormé, as well as trumpet showmen Louis Armstrong and Dizzy Gillespie. Benny will be sharing vocal duties with the Latin stylings of Mar Vilaseca, award-winning, rising-star Georgia Heers, and Django fan-favorite Richard Cortez.
Our “House Band” of All-Stars includes frequent Django bandleader Joe Saylor on drums (The Colbert Show), as well as other special guests. It will be a night showcasing all of the talent Django has fostered over the years…come celebrate with us!
