We’ll be making our debut at the Shalin Liu Performance Center in Rockport, MA on August 16th!
As part of the Rockport Jazz Festival, we are opening for the Grace Kelly Quintet. The performance is at 8 pm, so get there a little early to make sure you don’t miss our opening act. Tickets can be purchased here. We’re so excited to make our debut here. The center is only a year old, the acoustics are state of the art, and the design is absolutely beautiful! Other headliners for the festival are the Tierney Sutton Band, Roy Haynes, Ellis Marsalis, and Ann Hampton Callaway.
Grace Kelly, if you don’t know, is a female jazz instrumentalist and a Berklee grad. She was also the winner of Top Jazz Act in Boston by the Boston Phoenix for the last four years. She’s been retired from the category, and the Yoko Miwa Trio needs your votes to help us win. Who better to take on the title than a Berklee alum (and current faculty member) who is also a powerful female jazz musician in her own right? Vote for Yoko here. The last day to vote is May 18th, and you can vote once per day.. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to have two winners of the Boston Phoenix’s Jazz Act playing on the same stage on the same night?
