The Andy Sherwood Dixieland Jazz Quartet will perform their usual musical magic at City Cabaret 2018’s final concert on Sunday, April 8, 2018.
All City Cabaret 2018 concerts are free and held in the City of Groton Municipal Auditorium at 295 Meridian Street in the City of Groton on selected Sundays at 3:00 p.m. Take Exit 87 off I-95. Then turn right at the first light.
Groton Utilities and the City of Groton Parks and Recreation Department co-sponsor and co-produce the concert series.
The quartet, an annual performer in the series, includes Andy Sherwood on the clarinet, Ian Frenkel on piano, Bryan Rizzuto on string bass, and Tom Briggs on drums.
Clarinetist and saxophonist Sherwood displays a style deeply rooted in the clarinet playing of Benny Goodman, “the King of Swing,” and Pete Fountain, “the King of Dixieland.” Andy grew up listening to these great clarinetists, eventually leading him to audition and win the position as jazz clarinetist for the U.S. Coast Guard Band. He retired from the band in 2009 after 24 years.
Dessert and coffee will be available for purchase from the Fitch High School Alcohol and Drug Free Party Committee.
The concerts are free. No alcohol is allowed. The concert info line is (860) 446-4129.
