Landry SUNDAY, AUGUST 11, 4:30 PM

Join Landry as he performs songs from his first album, The Bayou– a musical marriage between American Jazz and African Soul. The album is a collection of songs that explore themes of triumph and sorrow. The vocal delivery is vulnerable and emotional. The emotion was inspired by years of inner struggles living in the closet as a gay man. Landry chose The Bayou experience as a gateway to finally be authentic with himself and the rest of the world. Inspired by the peace he found while recording the album, Landry went on to dedicate The Bayou to the LGBT community, thus making the album artwork (the two boys kissing) a powerful symbol of gay love: a love that is pure, authentic, childish, uncontrollable, and international. The intention behind the album is for every family to own it as a reminder to love fiercely and unconditionally.

Featuring Landry on vocals, Lee Bloom on piano, Joe Cohen on saxophone and Alan Hall on drums.

The Acrobatas are a Brazilian trio augmented by a Cuban pianist and an American saxophonist. They take a detour through Jazz and Funk before diving deep into Brazilian music. It’s like someone invited five musicians from all Americas into the same room and locked the door. Join Alex Dalzochio on guitar, Doug Pet on saxophone, Rafael Lima on bass and Daniel Arruda on drums for an evening of Brazilian melodies.

Note: The price for this concert was incorrectly listed in the summer catalog. The correct price is $15.
