Pepsi Rock Series powered by Xfinity
Moffly Media Evening of Art, Wine & Jazz Series
Join us in the lobby at 7:15pm for an Italian wine tasting by Pera Wines and an art exhibit by Melvin Clark!
The incomparable kings of swing are back with a new album, “Louie, Louie, Louie”—an electrifying celebration of jazz legends Louis Armstrong, Louis Jordan and Louis Prima. Together for over 23 years, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy — famously named after an autograph by blues legend Albert Collins — has appeared in concert venues across the world, sold millions of records, and had their music appear in hundreds of movies and television shows. With sold out concerts from the Hollywood Bowl to Lincoln Center, appearances with many of the country’s finest symphony orchestras, and television appearances ranging from Dancing with the Stars to Superbowl XXXIII, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy continues it’s decades-long mission to celebrate and revitalize jazz and swing music — America’s original musical art form — and bring joy to audiences around the world.
Melvin Clark’s portraits and images capture the vibrancy of jazz. A prolific painter with works in collections across North America, Europe, and Asia, Melvin’s art continues to evolve, exuding the essence of improvisation associated with the musicians he portrays. “The music moves me as close to anything spiritual as I am currently able to understand”. Join us at the Ridgefield Playhouse to meet Melvin Clark and explore his visual interpretation of jazz.
