THE BALZER JAZZ SERIES
Back for another year! Join Georgia-based performer Joe Gransden for four soulfully smooth gigs in our intimate Balzer Theater at Herren’s with his four-piece band along with exciting special guests. Renowned for the hard bop approach of his trumpet and a voice that has been compared to Chet Baker and Frank Sinatra, Joe Gransden has performed worldwide with the big bands of Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller, as well as Barry White, The Moody Blues, Kenny Rogers, The Temptations, Aretha Franklin, and The Whispers. Joe performs locally at Café 290 and at various venues in Manhattan, Hilton Head, South Carolina, and California. Joe’s album “Close To My Heart” was produced by saxophone great Kenny G, and his newest project, “Songs of Sinatra & Friends,” celebrates the music of Ol’ Blue Eyes.
