Steven Bernstein’s Universal Melody Brass Dance Party!
Steven Bernstein‘s Universal Melody Brass Band is an all-star group featuring long time musical cohorts including Billy Martin, Marcus Rojas, Curtis Fowlkes, Frank London, Oscar Noriega, Matt Darriau, and Art Baron, among others. Steven Bernstein has been writing arrangements for over 30 years, for both his own projects and legendary musicians such as Marianne Faithfull, Roswell Rudd, Rufus Wainwright, Bill Frisell, Elton John and Levon Helm. This project includes original compositions but also pulls from his vast library of arrangements ranging from Jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington, Nino Rota, Sly Stone, Allen Toussaint to The Band, and much more. Each of the musicians is a band leader and virtuoso improvisor in their own right – expect that this combination of two trumpets, two trombones, two saxophones, tuba and drums will be a sound like no other!
The group is set to rock the TD Bank Dance Tent with a special set designed specifically for Winter’s Eve.
Location: Winter’s Eve TD Bank Dance Tent (Broadway at 61st Street)
Time: 6:45 & 8:00pm
