EVENTS

  1. MUSIC AT THE MANSION 1/18- THE WORLD TRAD ORCHESTRA

    January 18, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    The World Trad Orchestra brings together four of the most inspired, inventive jazz musicians on the East Coast to play some of the world’s most inspiring, transporting songs. The band features Rob Curto on accordion, Jay Rattman on clarinet, Dan Monaghan on drums, and Dan Martin on bass. Each member has a long list of credits — Grammy nominations and film soundtracks, high-profile collaborations and performances at Coachella. They formed the World Trad Orchestra to give new life to music that has shaped them profoundly: Brazilian, Cuban, American and French music from the 1920s and 1930s The World Trad Orchestra is more than a jazz band — it’s an emotional weather system. It’s a party on Gatsby’s lawn. It’s a nightclub in Rio. It’s the early hours of the morning in Old Havana. It’s a cobblestone street in Paris at dusk. It’s a mood, an atmosphere, an experience
