     Jazz guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli has been thrilling audiences with his signature swinging style for close to seven decades. Throughout that time, Bucky has played with a veritable Who’s Who of bandleaders and performers including musical giants like Benny Goodman, Frank Sinatra, Stephane Grappelli, Tony Bennett, Zoot Sims, and Les Paul among others. Besides becoming a fixture on the big band circuit and in the studio, Pizzarelli also took a stint in The Tonight Show Band on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson.  Pizzarelli, known for his masterful chord soloing and extraordinary rhythm, was also one of the first jazz guitarists to master the seven-string guitar, employing the extra string for basslines in order to enrich his solo performances and sessions. The 87 year old swing-era icon has fathered equally swinging musicians, including well-known guitarist/vocalist John Pizzarelli.

    Don’t miss a chance to hear one of the few remaining legends of the swing era!
