Chat Noir - Gypsy Jazz Aug. 6
Chat Noir celebrates tunes from the Great American Songbook, as well as performing their own swinging take on songs from the traditions of European countries, including France, Italy and Russia, all performed in the style of the great jazz legend Django Reinhardt. The band features Markus Centola on accordion, Dan Liparini on guitar, Mike Piraneo on clarinet, and Dave Uhl on double bass.

Streetlight Shakers - Rock/Soul/Blues Aug. 13
Streetlight Shakers is an all original piano driven band dedicated to creating an exciting infusion of rock, soul, and blues. Switching effortlessly from rowdy dance grooves to sentimental contemplations, Streetlight Shakers delivers sophisticated musicality and thought-provoking lyrics in a unique pop package. Using rich harmony, soaring melody, and a driving rhythm they create songs that tell powerful stories with messages that are universally relatable.

Dan Liparini Jazz Quartet - Mellow Jazz Aug. 20
Dan Liparini is a guitarist, composer, and arranger based in Hartford, CT. As a student at the Hartt School of Music he had the opportunity to study with Steve Davis, Nat Reeves, Rene McLean, Chris Casey, Rich Goldstein and other great musicians. His music is based in the tradition of the guitar trio but also draws influence from blues, rock and electronic music; a crossroads where the music of Thelonious Monk and Jim Hall meets the music of The Beatles and Radiohead. The music is tied together through its simplicity, and the trio uses each song as a template to explore different sounds and textures.

Still Kickin' with the Big City Horns - Horn Band Favorites Aug. 27
A rockin’ nine piece band paying tribute to the great 60’s – 70’s and 80’s Horn Bands. A powerhouse rhythm and horn section delivering a variety of Classic Rock, R & B, Blues, Soul and Funk, with a touch of Country thrown in – to keep you moving on the dance floor. "Still Kickin With The Big City Horns" is a showcase band for the largest cruise night in New England “Marks Classic Cruise”. They have performed at “The Big E” and have been invited back again and again to the town of Windsor, Bloomfield, Granby , East Granby, and Westfield, MA for their summer music series. A perfect choice for festivals, fairs and prominent events!
