Formed by renowned tuba player Eli Newberger, the Hot Six will perform the songs of America’s most beloved composer, George Gershwin. As a pianist and composer of classical, jazz, popular and theatrical songs, Gershwin’s voice is instantly recognizable and deeply affecting. You’ll hear the swirling phrases of “Fascinatin’ Rhythm,” and the rocketing jazz anthem, “I Got Rhythm,” as well as the glorious “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” and songs that speak to every yearning heart in “The Man I Love” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
Eli and the Hot Six are Eli Newberger; Bob Winter, the legendary Boston Pops pianist; Bo Winiker, trumpet and flugelhorn; Herb Gardner, trombone; Jeff Guthrey, drums; Jimmy Mazzy, banjo and vocals; and Ted Casher, clarinet, soprano and tenor saxes. Singer Rebecca Sullivan frosts the cake with her shining vocals.
