Merchant Hall

Featuring The Birdland Big Band
Directed by Tommy Igoe

For this one night only, Merchant Hall transforms into Birdland Jazz Club, New York’s great mecca for jazz, as this dynamic new ensemble creates an unforgettable musical event. Virtuoso drummer Tommy Igoe leads The Birdland Big Band in an exciting and surprising performance that showcases the very best of American jazz along with world music from every corner of the globe. “Tommy Igoe’s drumming defies the laws of physics and his band sets the new standard for what a big band can be in the 21st-century.” (The International Jazz Herald) This fantastic show recreates the amazing ambience of a night at Birdland — a truly unforgettable experience — as this stellar big band performs inventive arrangements and original interpretations of works by Charlie “Bird” Parker, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, and others. “A completely unique NYC experience. There isn’t another band like this anywhere.” (Time Out New York)
