Over 25 years of research and performance have given the musicians of "1964" mastery of their craft. Come see why "1964"... The Tribute is the definitive Beatles show!

Banjoists Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn have mastered the deceptively intricate art of the duet. Their performances embrace a diversity almost unthinkable - coming from just two banjos and one voice. Washburn's beguiling composing, playing and singing blend with Fleck's riveting and virtuosic musicianship to create music both unique yet familiar in texture.

Postmodern Jukebox

Saturday, 10/25/2014  8:00 PM
   A: $29
Buy Tickets
Proving that everything new can be old again, pianist Scott Bradlee has become a viral pop sensation, racking up millions of views, by creating a series of clips for YouTube that finds him and his ad hoc group Postmodern Jukebox re-working 21st century pop hits in a variety of vintage styles.

You may know Bradlee's work best from a video, linked below, with eight million views on YouTube: Lorde's "Royals" as sung by Puddles - a 6’8” sad clown! But Postmodern Jukebox has also proven that Iggy Azalea’s summer smash hit "Fancy" is well suited to be a 1920s flapper-style number, and although doo-wop isn’t something you associate with Miley Cyrus, just wait until you hear “We Can't Stop” transformed into that unique '50s style. “Thrift Shop”, by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, has a '20s jazz accent now, Beyonce’s “Drunk in Love” is reinterpreted as a big band song, and Kesha's "Die Young" makes a lively country tune.

An Evening with Bruce Hornsby

Saturday, 11/1/2014  8:00 PM
   A: $55   B: $42   C: $35   D: $30
Buy Tickets
Bruce Hornsby’s work displays a creative iconoclasm that’s been a constant in the artist’s two-and-a-half-decade recording career. His commercial stock soared early on, when “The Way It Is” – the title track of his 1986 debut album – became one of the most popular songs on American radio. Despite his early mainstream successes, Hornsby has pursued a more personal, idiosyncratic musical path, focusing on projects that sparked his creative interest, including collaborations with the Grateful Dead, Spike Lee, Ornette Coleman, Bob Dylan, Béla Fleck, and Robbie Robertson.

In November 1st's solo performance, Hornsby will offer a glimpse of a restless spirit who continues to push forward into exciting new musical terrain.
* * * * *
Bruce Hornsby's new live double album "Solo Concerts" will be included with the purchase of each ticket. The two-CD set can be picked up at the show by redeeming your ticket.

Arlo was last at the Hall in 2008, joined by the Burns Sisters for a rousing and fun night of music. He returns solo this time, to fill the stage with the tales and anecdotes of a natural born storyteller, creating an evening of satire, laughs, social commentary, and great folk music.

Known to generations as a prolific songwriter, social commentator, master storyteller, actor and activist, Arlo - an icon in his own right - is the eldest son of Marjorie Mazia Guthrie (a professional dancer with the Martha Graham Company) and America's most beloved singer/writer/philosopher/artist, Woody Guthrie. Arlo has had a distinguished and varied career spanning over fifty years.

Judy Collins is a Hall favorite! Her beautiful voice, in the acoustics of the Music Hall, makes her performances here extraordinary every time.

Judy will again share her classics, like "Chelsea Morning", "Cat’s in the Cradle", and "Bird on a Wire". And, inspired by the same love that fuels her new PBS special "Judy Collins Live in Ireland", she will also add Celtic flavour with some of her favorite Irish tunes, like "Wild Mountain Thyme", "She Moved Through the Fair", and (of course!) "Danny Boy".

The Marcus Roberts Trio will perform at 9:30. The trio - Marcus Roberts on piano, Jason Marsalis on drums, and Rodney Jordan on bass - is known for its dynamic, melodic style. Roberts was the subject of high praise from Wynton Marsalis: "We call him the genius of the modern piano, because he is."

The trio has been known since its formation in 1995 for an entirely new approach to jazz trio performance; the musicians of the trio share equally, through interpersonal cues, in shaping the tempo, mood, texture, and form of the music. Every musician's virtuosic talent is showcased in the group's powerful rhythmic sound.
* * * * *
The trio will be preceded on the Music Hall stage at 8:30 by the expressive virtuoso Anat Cohen - the Jazz Journalists Association's Clarinetist of the Year for seven years running, a constant leader in critics' and readers' polls in DownBeat magazine, and a delightful performer on clarinet and saxophone.

JazzTimes records, "With the clarinet she becomes a singer, a dancer, a poet, a mad scientist, laughing - musically - with the sheer delight of reaching that new place, that new feeling, with each chorus."
