The Mark Snyder Quartet

Opening act 7:30: Philippe Crettien quartet, featuring Philippe Crettien sax, Patrick Mottaz, guitar, Sean Farias, bass and Mike Connors drums.

"Playing in nearly every possible type of band from jazz, to rock, R&B, and show music for the past 30 years has given Boston area bass player Mark Snyder a pretty broad spectrum of musical experience to choose from. He draws from all of that with his band The Mark Snyder Quartet, a groovy combo of rocking guitars, drums, sax, and flute that digs deep into old standards, modern jazz classics, and funky originals..." - The Boston Globe

Cha-Cha & Dr. Nat

Cha Cha & Dr. Nat’s piano-vocal cabaret act took Worcester by storm with shows such as “Cha-Cha & Dr. Nat: The Rapture”, and “Cha Cha & Dr. Nat Stop Traffic.” Then, the duo mysteriously hibernated, and a cloud crept over our beloved city. “Will they ever get together again?” was the cry that arose from all true music-&-fun lovers.

Andy Statman

Had there been a planetarium in 19th-century Galicia, or a kosher deli in Depression-era Kentucky, Andy Statman's music might have been playing in the background. Meandering through time, geography and culture, the man and his inimitable hybrid sound move freely among the before, the after, and the present.
