The Allan Harris Band returns to the Sunrise for another unforgettable concert on Saturday, July 24 at 7 p.m. Swinging jazz, rich R&B, sumptuous balladry, wailing rock, rumbling blues, and even a touch of playful Brazilian will be woven into this evening of live music. The concert is sponsored by Spot On Floor & Carpet Rejuvenation, and tickets are on sale now.
The Allan Harris Band has mesmerized audiences in over 20 countries around the globe, 30 prestigious international jazz festivals, and many of the world’s most famous music venues. Allan Harris is a Brooklyn-born, Harlem-based guitarist, singer, songwriter, and band leader. He has been called the “Jazz Vocal King of New York” and described as possessing a voice with “the warmth of Tony Bennett, the bite and rhythmic sense of Sinatra, and the sly elegance of Nat ‘King’ Cole.”
His band includes some of New York’s most talented musicians. ArcoIris Sandoval is a jazz pianist, composer and Fulbright Award recipient with a master’s degree in jazz piano performance from the Manhattan School of Music. The two-time Grammy-nominated artist Norman Edwards, Jr. was born into a musical family with a father who was a drummer in the Gospel scene and a mother who was a dancer and clarinetist. Irwin Hall got his start at the age of 9 when he won an alto saxophone in a school lottery and was performing professionally and winning national competitions by age 11. Marty Kenney is among his generation’s most versatile and in demand double and electric bassists and has a master’s degree from the Manhattan School of Music.
The Allan Harris Band’s performance at the Sunrise Theater is made possible with the support of Jazz Road, a national initiative of South Arts, which is funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation with additional support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
