AC @ Marado Blu, West Caldwell, NJ, December 2001
Yes, this is probably it, folks! Jeff Ganz is moving out of the area
soon, and the chances that this group will play together again are
pretty slim, unless someone subsidizes a tour for us (yeah, right).
Come hear this mighty trio for the final time, doing their blistering
assortment of jazz, blues, Classic rock, R&B, Broadway, and novelty
ACID CABARET hit the scene in 2000 and released its lone CD in 2002,
garnering some awards on the NY cabaret scene in the process.
Pianist/vocalist Ed Alstrom and his trio (featuring the explosive and
highly creative talents of Jeff Ganz on bass and Don Guinta on drums)
play a bewilderingly eclectic assortment of tunes in their unique
style, drawing on Broadway, blues, R&B, cabaret, standards, Classic
rock, New Orleans music, novelty items, jazz, opera, quirky originals,
and whatever else they can pillage and manipulate to their own ends.
ACID CABARET appeared regularly at Trumpets in its heyday and refined its act there.
and is happy to be able to complete the circle there.
Ed will start his 16th season tickling the ivories of the mighty
HAMMOND ELEGANTE at YANKEE STADIUM, on Saturdays, Sundays, and some
weekdays here and there. A 15-minute spot about an hour before game
time, and of course, rousing renditions of "Happy Birthday" in the
middle of the 6th, and "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" in the middle of
the 7th (all 45,000 fans singing lustily along!!).
Info about the team, of course, is at www.yankees.com
