Sonny and Perley, Sonny and Perley “Breezin Along With The Blues ~ Everybody Loves The Blues” History,
Media- Other,
Music
“Breezin Along With The Blues ~ Everybody Loves The Blues” Husband and wife duo Sonny and Perley are well known for their playful presentation of classics from the Great American Songbook, Bossa Nova and International Cabaret traditions. In this concert they're having a ball with the blues! Back in the 1940s the currents of jazz and blues ran close together. This is the era they draw from with their lighthearted, jazzy spin on the blues. Sonny and Perley don't pine or bewail—they let loose with rhythm and humor, singing and playing songs of the human experience that get your feet tapping, fingers snapping, and put a smile on your face. Joining Sonny on keyboards and vocals, Perley on vocals and percussion, will be Jim Curtin on bass and vocals.

Montalbine, Diane Out Of My Dreams- Diane Perry-Jazz violin and vocals Music
I am a Juilliard-trained classical violinist who has been performing jazz for over 20 years. I currently am doing a music program suitable for all ages, with either piano or keyboard, (or guitar) and prefer to also add bass, and drums, or a guest instrumentalist as well. The program is called Out Of My Dreams after the title of my new CD, and I perform standards and not-so-standard songs from the canon of the American Popular Songbook, as well as originals. I sing and play jazz violin, and even occasionally sneak in a classical piece for fun. Some of the songs are presented in such a way that people can sing along if they wish, and it is designed to be entertaining and fun for the audience, not merely a concert where quiet reigns, and I like to use humor and stories of where the songs came from to enrich the program.

Hall, Rebecca Hungrytown in Concert Music
'Musically, Hungrytown is a rare breed. In this age of fusion, [Rebecca] Hall and [Ken] Anderson prefer to reverse-engineer modern folk. . .writing brand-new ballads that sound straight out of the '30s. Standing face to face, so close that their guitars almost touch, they sing into the same mic, evoking scenes from the glory days of the Grand Ole Opry.' Justin Shatwell - Yankee Magazine (November/December 2008) Hall & Anderson have created a program specifically tailored to libraries and their patrons. Unique to this presentation is a focus on the Appalachian and Celtic roots of their songwriting, with the performance of traditional songs relevant to the development of their style. Instrumentaion consists of guitar, bass and harmonica.
