Jazz Up Your Lunch With Live Music At Albany Plaza
Are you a jazz fan? What about classical? Or Doo-Wop?
Throughout October, you can find it all at Albany Plaza at the corner of Albany and Greenwich Streets in Lower Manhattan. The Downtown Alliance is proud to present five days a week of free music, between 12 P.M. and 2 P.M., each week day, weather permitting. You can sing along, dance or just sit back and enjoy the performance.
Participating musicians and groups include:
(Mondays) Members of the Knickerbocker Chamber Orchestra , a meshing of the old and new – classical music played by top contemporary musicians, in the fast-growing neighborhoods of old New York, among cobblestone streets and skyscrapers alike.
(Tuesdays) House of Waters, an innovative three-person ensemble, that embraces the multi-layered sounds of the world and consists of virtuoso dulcimer, percussion and six string electric base players.
(Wednesdays) The five-man Tin Pan Band, which describes itself as Ray Charles and Tom Waits at a Bourbon Street Parade. Tin Pan plays 1920’s style swing, jump and blues that is truly accessible and a joy to experience.
(Thursdays) Spank Doo-Wop, a quartet of superb vocal talent that first began performing more than 20 years ago.
(Fridays) Members of The Greenwich Village Orchestra, a 70-person orchestra of amateur and part-time musicians whose performances are emotionally charged, exhilarating and truly a delight.
