Concert Details

Photos by  Domingo Mancuello

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.

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

Drew Nugent and his Midnight Society Orchestra return, after being cancelled in June, 2020.  Drew and the band specialize in playing in the traditional "hot" jazz style of the 1920s. His band, known as the Midnight Society, has been together over 10 years. Under Drew's leadership, they bring forth an authentic, yet original approach to an art form over 100 years old.  Nugent's inspiration comes from a who's who list of great performers, composers, and musicians, both obscure and known going back a full century.
