Guest vocalist with Big New York and the Smooth Jazz All-Starz

The Carlyle Club, 2050 Ballenger Ave, Alexandria, VA 22314

Bassist, composer, and band leader Christian "Big New York" de Mesones returns to the Carlyle Club with "A Smooth Funky Evening with Big New York & the Smooth Jazz All-Starz", bringing his unique brand of Latin- and Funk-infused smooth jazz and a stellar lineup. Christian has wowed audiences throughout the DMV since 2015 with his personal vision for this group. When asked to explain that vision, he stated, "Everyone gets a spotlight in this band. I like to create excitement sonically, and that means mixing it up so the listening audience can get it's money's worth." Guest vocalist Nia Simmons and trumpeter Rob Zinn join core band members Elliot Levine on keyboards, Rob Maletick on soprano, alto and tenor saxes, Mike Gamble on electric and acoustic guitars, and Curtis McCain on percussion, with Chris "Biscuit" Bynum on drums and a few surprise guests. Don't miss this opportunity to witness the "extraordinary talent and stage presence" of Big New York, and his musically gratifying show described as "simply astounding, and as moving as an earthquake," by Ron Jackson of the SmoothJazzRide.com.
