After a memorable Middle C debut, vocal phenom Joey Santo will return with his take on the Dean Martin songbook.  As Martin strikes a chord with Santo's Italian heritage, expect to hear a nice blend of English and Italian iconic classics.  Santo will be accompanied by the Sean Higgins Trio.


Joey Santo
Joey Santo brings a fresh young take to Middle C Jazz on the timeless classics recorded by Frank Sinatra 70 years ago.  Santo brings a big sound on Sinatra’s swing tunes, and manages to switch it up with a remarkably tender interpretation on the ballads.

As a native of Durham, North Carolina, Scott’s childhood immersion in music and art are most evident producing a melting pot of colors and sonic dimensions that are all her own. Like many in the South, Tyra’s gospel music upbringing created many opportunities to share her gift for singing, paving the way for a totally unique approach to the idioms of jazz, samba, and pop music alike.

Sarah Vaughan's vocal legacy reaches far and wide.  Charlotte-based vocalist, Dawn Anthony, will take us on Sarah's journey of song while demonstrating that some contemporary singers have a bit more Vaughan in their voice than you may have realized.  Anthony will team up with the Sean Higgins Trio for the outing.
