Ken and company will deliver everything from solos to group jams, with a solid mix of vocals thrown in. The format for the evening will be our usual jazz party: top-ticketed cabaret seating down front of the main floor, and reserved seating up in the balcony, with a full bar in the Tykeson Lobby. We get going at 7 pm--an hour earlier than the Festival's other evening concerts. While dressing up is not required, in the spirit of the event we encourage it (especially if you go period!).

Ken has put together a list of 50 tunes (available here online and in the program at the party) and the evening’s program will be shaped by audience requests. Be prepared for a relaxed evening featuring some of the best standards-based jazz and cabaret anywhere!
