Dave Solazzo and The Bridge (CANCELED)

Friday, January 19

Experience an evening of exceptional music, delicious food, and fine wine in our intimate and relaxed setting

About the show:
Three exceptional first call sidemen have combined to become leaders of their own, developing an original compositional style. The resulting music on Locrian Skye, the group’s debut record, is raw, real and in the moment. It is a loose, spontaneous collaboration that captures a uniquely original take on the Post Bop sound.

Dave Solazzo teaches Jazz Piano at Cornell University and has played and recorded with jazz luminaries such as Eric Alexander, Joe Magnarelli, Joel Frahm and Jon Gordon at venues like the Savannah Jazz Festival, the Syracuse Jazz Fest and The Flatiron Room in New York City.
Bassist Matthew Vacanti and drummer Bill D’Agostino comprise the rhythm section known as “The Bridge.” They have worked together and separately for over three decades, laying down foundations for Joey DeFrancisco, Ron Jackson, Kevin Mahagony, The Temptations and Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, to name a few.

A Listening Room Experience

Hermit Woods is excited to bring talented artists from New England and beyond to perform for you. Each performance will provide you with an intimate, up-close, and personal experience with the performing artists. We ask our audience please refrain from talking during the featured show. Your silence will allow the artists and the audience to immerse themselves in the experience, which is not otherwise possible in larger, noisier environments.

Doors open at 5:30 pm for a complimentary wine tasting. The Loft Doors open at 6:00. We encourage you to arrive early for our wine tasting and enjoy food and wine before the show. The kitchen will close at 7:00. When the featured artists takes the stage we will ask that the audience remain quiet during the performance. After the show, we invite you to interact with the artists and purchase any music or merchandise offerings if available.
