An Evening with
Eastern Monroe Public Library’s BookHouse series continues on Friday, May 15th with a jazz, blues and rock concert by The Matt Daniel Band.
Friday, May 15, 2015 at 7:30 PM
With a taste of some of the twentieth century's most important musical movements, The Matt Daniel Band reinvigorates old songs with a new twist. The duet of keyboardist and drummer start off with a bit of ragtime-stride, and then on into the era of swing and boogie-woogie. They then embark on rock ‘n' roll frenzy, all the while explaining the history and icons behind the movement. Continuing the performance into the style of New Orleans piano, a style with roots steeped in boogie-woogie, gospel, and funk, the band takes a slower approach to the blues.
