Church Avenue Sessions
Thursday, March 9th, 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
A new monthly music series will get underway in Kensington next month. Guitarist and composer Yoshie Fruchter has created a series called Church Avenue Sessions, hosted by the Flatbush Jewish Center. The sessions will showcase Brooklyn-based musicians playing in all genres.
The cost of admission is $15. People of all ages are welcome to attend.
Two Kensington bands will kick off the series, Who is Manny Blanc? and The Xylopholks.
Klezmatics clarinetist Matt Darriau leads Who is Manny Blanc? in playing jazz-tinged klezmer music. In addition to reeds, band members play trombone, guitar, marimba, harmonica, bass, keyboards, and drums. Yoshie Fruchter, who performed at Flatbush Jewish Center a week ago, is on guitar.
The Xylopholks plays ragtime and jazz from the Roaring 20s, with Jon Singer on xylophone and other band members on banjo, bass, upright bass, and drums. And they dress in furry animal costumes (and sometimes fruit) when they play!
