Etc.VINTAGE AMERICAN POP
Etcetera

Etcetera, with singers Anne Bauman, Dick Bauman, Jan Carpman, Bob Collins, Pam Gibb, Steve Mandell, Mary Ellen Weakley and Bill Weakley, is an offshoot of The Choral Connection, a song-and-dance troupe which has been entertaining audiences in and around Ann Arbor since 1994. Joyce Reese is the piano accompanist.

ReichbartCLASSIC JAZZ & POP STANDARDS
The Jake Reichbart Trio
Unfortunately, Suzanne Smith's concert has been canceled. However, we were fortunate to be able to schedule the Jake Reichbart Trio in her place. Born in Goteborg, Sweden, guitar virtuoso Jake Reichbart lived in Winnipeg, Tel Aviv and Amsterdam before settling in Ann Arbor, MI in 1991. Along his musical journey, he has picked up numerous praises and awards for his performances and recordings. Drummer George Bennett is an electronic as well as an acoustic percussionist and is recognized for his versatility in a variety of musical styles. Nick Calandro, the bassist, is a player in great demand who is known for his thrilling solos.  Under Reichbart’s direction, this group interprets classic jazz and pop standards with virtuosity and style.
