The EarRegulars feature leader Jon-Erik Kellso on trumpet and Matt Munisteri on guitar and showcase a changing roster of guest artists. They have been playing (almost) every week (pre-pandemic) Sunday nights at the Ear Inn since at least 2008. They play swinging, melodic classic jazz, i.e. everything from New Orleans style through the Tin Pan Alley classics, the swing era, and mainstream jazz. Listeners will find the swingingest players in New York City playing with them, as well as the best from all over the world guesting when in town. We're looking forward to the roster Jon brings with him to our Tri-State engagement!

This event will be a streaming event - click  Concert Details below to get more information.

Domingo Mancuello – Piano

Pianist Domingo Mancuello brings ragtime melodies (and more!) to Tri-State Jazz in April.  Mancuello has played piano since age 4 - and discovered ragtime when his grandfather sang with a barbershop quartet.. He has apprenticed at Philadelphia's Walnut Theatre, graduated from the University of the Arts, and worked as production assistant at the Fulton Theatre, Lancaster, while also pursuing his passion for ragtime. He tries to preserve an old tradition while refreshing it for the 21st century.  In addition to performing the repertoire, Mancuello is a composer in his own right - his The Bomba Walk - A Syncopated Frenzy was included in a 'new piano rag' compilation on Rivermont Records, released in 2019.  Watch this streaming concert to hear ragtime, plus obscure (and not so obscure) '20s pop tunes.
