Every (Day/Date) - Around the Clock


Swinging Bossa Nova and Latin beats start the weekend off with this trio of acclaimed musicians.

Saxophone player and composer John Snauwaert has a very wide scope and is an artistic world traveler. Thus he made acquaintance with Petar Elmazof (Bulgaria), Chergio de Susa and Pipo Fernandes (Cuba, the latter member of the B V S C), Mahbub & Satar Khan (India). He also played on stage with jazz masters as Lowell Fulson, Isaac Hurley, Jacques Pelzer, Bob Mover, Gary Smulyan, Nilson Matta, Roni Ben-Hur… As a composer and musician he worked for Koninklijke Vlaamse Schouwburg, het Muziek Lod, De Werf, Victoria, De Vieze Gasten and Circus Picolini. He loves the music/image combination and wrote music for the animated movies ‘papa trumpet’ and ‘Meme’ by Eveline Verschorre and also for ‘The Bed’ by Luc Degryze. He really can handle any genre.

Marcello Pellitteri is an exciting drummer to experience and, similarly, a professor and alumnus of the prestigious Berklee College of Music. He has performed with Grammy Winners and acclaimed musicians including: Paquito D’Rivera, Claudio Roditi, Wynton Marsalis, Slide Hampton, Woody Shaw, and many more.

Gapplegate Music writes , “The pianism of George Dulin has all the linear thrust and power of a Bud Powell, but different notes! He's rather young but his play does not sound like it. There is a fully formed vision of how to go about his art.”

Nilson Matta has worked with Trio da Paz, Yo Yo Ma, Claudio Roditi, Paquito D’Rivera, and many more. He is always a favorite of our audiences and the trio has an infectious amount of fun performing!

No music charge, $40 food & drink minimum for seatings at 5:30 and 8:15. Reservations strongly recommended.
