Kicking off Centenary Stage Company’s January Thaw Music Festival will be a performance by Dominick Farinacci Quartet on January 14 at 8:00 pm. Trumpeter, Dominick Farinacci, has performed in more than 120 cities in 14 countries around the world and was named the very first Global Ambassador to Jazz at the Lincoln Center. His most recent recording “Short Stories” is produced by four-time Grammy Award winning producer, Tommy Lipuma.
Then, join Centenary Stage Company as Damn Tall Buildings take to the stage on January 21 at 8:00 pm. In their early days, Brooklyn-based Damn Tall Buildings didn’t rehearse – they busked. Now, whether live or on record, the band still radiates the energy of a ragtag crew of music students. Bluegrass at heart but pulling from a wide range of influences from swing to ragtime, jazz to contemporary, Damn Tall Building’s lyrics tell the story of the mundane while keeping to their message of “Carry on”.
Finally, the return of Chuchito Valdés on January 28 at 8:00 pm. With influences of Caribbean rhythms and jazz, Chuchito Valdés creates an exciting and energetic blend of spicy music that drives audiences wild. He is recognized as a master of Cuban music and has also studied classical music extensively. This piano master captivates and drives excitement with his dynamic band.
All January Thaw Music Festival performances will take place in the Sitnik Theatre of the Lackland Performing Arts Center located on the campus of Centenary University at 715 Grand Avenue, Hackettstown, NJ. Ticket prices for each performance are $25.00 for adults, $20.00 for seniors, and $15.00 for students and children under 12.
