Memo Acevedo‘s Manhattan Bridges Orchestra
8:30pm & 10pm cover $20 at the door
One thing drives the father and daughter team of Memo and Jacquelene Acevedo… their love and passion for the music they do!
Desiring to have the freedom element in their art, they refuse to be labeled by being opened to experiment with the fusion of Be-Bop lines and Jazz harmonies, mixed with Latin American rhythms from Brazil, Cuba, and Colombia.
Their band, The Manhattan Bridges Orchestra (10-piece) holds a residency doing the First Friday at the club and it has been described by critics as “a powerhouse”!
Drummer/percussionist, Memo Acevedo is the recipient of numerous awards in the music industry as a performer, leader, educator, and author. Jacquelene, an upcoming percussion star, has (in a short time career) received a Latin Grammy Award, toured and recorded two CDs with trumpet stalwart, Jeremy Pelt and currently touring with Nicholas Payton, among numerous bands. Together, they hold a monthly residency at New York City’s legendary Jazz/World venue, The Zinc Bar.
