About This Event
Bash for The Nash Gala Entertainment
The inaugural Bash for The Nash Gala will feature the captivating sound of saxman Houston Person in an all-star quartet with Eric Gunnison on piano, Chuck Berghofer on bass and our namesake Lewis Nash on drums; plus sensational Italian-born jazz vocalist Roberta Gambarini. There will be additional performances by students of The Nash’s unique education programs, who exemplify the future of jazz which the Gala supports.
Houston Person is known for his long-time association with legendary vocalist Etta James, as well as collaborations with dozens of jazz luminaries and more than 75 albums as bandleader. He is a popular headliner at jazz festivals, parties and dances, and he is known as the patriarch of The Jazz Cruise on which he has performed every year since its maiden voyage in 2000.
Roberta Gambarini was exposed to jazz during her youth in Italy and moved to the United States in 1998 where she received a scholarship to The New England Conservatory of Music, earned recognition in major jazz competitions, and formed musical associations with jazz giants including James Moody, Hank Jones, Jimmy Heath and Roy Hargrove. Roberta is a stunning artist who will capture your hearts.
