Green-Wood Cemetery (Brooklyn)
7–10PM, $65
(Rain date: 5/27) “First, we brought you the beauty of Burgers, Bourbon & Beethoven. Then, we handed you Hot Dogs, Hooch & Handel on a silver platter. And now, we triumphantly top this trifecta off with a towering new trio: Tacos, Tequila & Tavener’s Protecting Veil! For this large-scale outdoor event, come share sunset swing jazz with the impeccable Grand St. Stompers, taste some of New York’s finest tacos, tequila, mezcal and more. Then, as darkness descends over Green-Wood’s looming Gothic Arch, we’ll gather to hear the Contemporaneous ensemble, alongside star cellist Joshua Roman, as they premiere their new arrangement of Tavener's transcendental, searching meditation on faith, and how our belief can protect us.”

See posts + videos by Jazz Lives here and here!

The Grand St. Stompers, a band described by the NY Times as “a pillar of New York’s hot jazz scene,” present HOLIDAY STOMP, a celebration of the season. As music writer Michael Steinman describes it: “The Grand St. Stompers are creative joymakers. Their ensembles rock; their solos soar; the band can sound like the Louis Armstrong All-Stars then hint at Gil Evans or Forties Ellington. Sweet or tart vocals by Tamar Korn and Molly Ryan tie up the holiday package with a glossy bow. The music celebrates the season but it’s nothing like the formulaic seasonal blare. No Rudolph, no drummer boy—just pleasure, ingenuity, and sly humor.”

“Opening in 2021, Chelsea Table + Stage is New York's newest hotspot for intimate dining and music. Offering a wide variety of American-fare menu items, with curated wine + cocktails, audiences can experience some of the best touring performers in the world featured alongside local emerging artists.
