@ Lucille’s Grill – Shows @ 7PM & 9:30PM (Doors @ 6PM & 8:45PM)
From premier NYC jazz clubs to the underground world of NYC subway and secret speakeasy events, Svetlana & The Delancey Five is a “very sweet & naughty” (Jazzlives), “energetic” (Wall Street Journal), “delightful” (WRHU Jazz Radio), and cinematically handsome Golden Age-inspired sextet.

WYCLIFFE GORDON – Trombone / Vocals
Musical ambassador and interpreter of America’s music, Wycliffe Gordon experiences an impressive career touring the world performing hard-swinging, straight-ahead jazz receiving great acclaim from audiences and critics alike.
