Jazz Series launches with Gonzalo Bergara Quartet

 
In the first of a special jazz series, we present the Gonzalo Bergara Quartet performing a fresh take on Gypsy Jazz and Argentine music.
Jazz series at the post The all-acoustic Gonzalo Bergara Quartet plays a modern variant of 1930’s Django Reeinhardt-inspired gypsy jazz.  After touring extensively with the John Jorgenson Quintet, Gonzalo Bergara has emerged a virtuoso composer and lead guitarist, mixing a cascade of arpeggios with the sounds of Paris and his native Argentina, to forge his own style of progressive Gypsy Jazz.
Bergara’s first CD, Porteña Soledad, was Editor’s Pick in Guitar Player Magazine, and Vintage Guitar Magazine called it a “masterpiece.” The Gonzalo Bergara Quartet consists of Gonzalo Bergara on lead guitar, Jeffrey Radaich on rhythm guitar, Leah Zeger on violin, and Brian Netzley on upright bass. Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of France, as well as the traditional jazz and music of Bergara’s true home, Buenos Aires, heavily influence his compositions.
Special thanks to  Tybee Beach Vacation Rentals for accommodating our band.

After hundreds of sold-out performances on the North American tour and an award-winning run in Branson, Mo., one of the hottest stage shows in America rolls into Tybee when we present the musical theater sensation, “A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline.”

The show traces the late star’s footsteps from her early honky-tonk days and radio fame through her rise at the Grand Ole Opry and triumphs at Carnegie Hall andLas Vegas.Written and conceived by Dean Regan, the musical reveals the emotional depth and range of a singer who defined the term “crossover hit” by dominating country, blues, pop and gospel charts simultaneously in the 1950s and early 1960s. Starring a powerhouse singer and actress who sings 22 of Patsy’s greatest hits including “Walkin’ After Midnight,””Sweet Dreams,” “I Fall to Pieces,” “Crazy,” “She’s Got You,” “Seven Lonely Days” and the title song, “Just a Closer Walk with Thee.”

Backed up by a band of singers and musicians, Patsy interacts throughout the show with Little Big Man, a disc jockey from her hometown in Winchester, Va., as well as a host of outrageous stand-up comics that serve as warm-up acts for her concerts and radio shows. You won’t want to miss this very special stage production!

Sat., Feb. 27.  Doors open at 7:30, show starts at 8 pm.

Tickets are $25 reserved seating, $22.50 Theater members, $15 Students 17 and under.
