James Torme

Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at 7:00 PM

GVAC Patron Pricing: $10, $15, $20

According to Jazz FM, "If you get a chance to see James Tormé you should beg, borrow, even steal a ticket".  He is son of one of the all-time great Jazz vocalist, composer, arranger and three time Grammy Award winner Mel Tormé.  James grew up spending time with a myriad of Jazz Legends such as Ell Fitzgerald, George Shearing, Buddy Rich, Peggy Lee and Duke Ellington. James’ smooth singing style draws from the “old school”, but has a very modern versatility and interpretation of his own where his clean-toned vibrato, Jazz sensibilities and charismatic stage presence are fast making this multi-award winning singer one of the most talked about artists of his generation. “… an extraordinary singer with immense resources… his phrasing ...audacious and brilliant,” raves London Jazz News. Torme will be accompanied by a trio of performers playing piano, drums and bass.

General Pricing: $5, $10, $20

Ryan Shupe has a crossover style that is fresh and unlike any other.  He and his band put on a great show that is unique, creative, and entertaining. Playing a wide range of instruments and musical styles, the band appeals to rockers, fans of bluegrass and jam bands across a broad age range.  Stellar musicianship, witty lyrics, sing-alongs, and introspective ballads take the audience on a highly energized rollercoaster.  With amazing and versatile musicians, Shupe’s original songs are highlighted with hot instrumental solos and tight vocal harmonies. Thoughtful lyrics, rapid-fire vocals, dynamic musicianship and hard driving arrangements make the live show a sure-fire winner!
