On Friday, January 25, The Manhattan Transfer performs songs that earned them eight GRAMMY awards. Kicking off Friday's concert, we have the venerable father of jazz guitar, Bucky Pizzarelli, accompanied by his multi-talented son, John Pizzarelli.

Headlining Saturday's concert, Joe Sample & The Crusaders perform hits from their 45 albums in this very special reunion concert exclusively at The Grove Park Inn. Our Saturday evening concert features The John Pizzarelli Quartet as our event openers with their fabulous renditions from the American Popular Songbook.
