The Diamond-and-Emerald Bickford Benefit Concert
Thursday, October 28, 2021 at 8:00pm
Dan Levinson celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Benefit and the 20th anniversary of his first appearance at the Theatre!
Dan Levinson has once again assembled a truly spectacular group for this annual event, which will be our first back inside the theatre. Exciting young trumpeter and vocalist Danny Jonokuchi, winner of the first-ever Count Basie Great American Swing Contest earlier this year, will make his debut appearance at the theatre. Trombonist Doug Finke, who led his Independence Hall Jazz Band the night Dan made his own inaugural appearance at the theatre in October 2001, will make the trek north from his current home in Louisville, Kentucky to participate in the evening’s festivities. Conal Fowkes – for over 20 years the pianist in Woody Allen’s Monday-night band at NYC’s prestigious Carlyle Hotel and who is featured on many of the filmmaker’s soundtracks – will be grace the ivories of the Bickford’s grand piano. Canadian bassist Jen Hodge, recently relocated to New York City, will make her debut appearance at the theatre. And drummer Kevin Dorn, for 25 years the “Rock of Gibraltar” in Dan’s rhythm sections, will take his seat in the “engine room”. This event sells out, so don’t wait to buy tickets!
