80s Zombie Prom with music from SAFETY

In celebration of Halloween we're resurrecting the dead at our annual Halloween bash. This year the space and staff will be transformed into a "Zombie Prom" featuring food and libation specials from Skyy Vodka, a costume contest and live music from 80's cover band, SAFETY!  Not to be typecast as your average "cover band," SAFETY is anything but.

Jazz First with Vocalist Pamela Smith

Jazz First believes in the Great American Songbook, and feels those tunes should be preserved. Thus, the repertoire consists of jazz versions of this very listenable music by the masters (Porter, Gershwin, Rodgers, Strayhorn, etc.) written primarily in the first half of the twentieth century, with lyrical improvisations inserted for variety. At its core is a trio with Joe Whalen on piano, Chris Guild on bass, and Chris Narainen on drums.
