The legendary work of this long list of artists will be interpreted and performed by 21st century jazz masters Sean Dobbins on drums, Kurt Krahnke on bass, Tad Weed on piano, and A. Spencer Barefield on guitar.
In addition to the sure to be excellent performance, guests will enjoy a southern-style feat during intermission, which last year, included chicken, greens, mac n’cheese, peach cobbler and more.
The venue is an gorgeous 1924 Tudor-influenced French style manor designed by the famed architect Richard Marr, and was at one time home to one of the Fisher brothers.
