Out To Lunch Returns to TCCC
June 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$20
What happens when you put five musicians together with backgrounds and influences ranging from Bluegrass to Jazz to Celtic to Classical and give them the common goal of making these varied music types come to life and have a lot of fun doing it? You get “Out To Lunch!”
Bandmates Howie Bujese, Larry Cohen, Wayne Fugate, Susan Sassano, Michael Sassano, and Joe Selly have been delighting audiences with a sound uniquely their own since 1980.
On a typical evening with “Out To Lunch,” one might be treated to a smooth rendition of a classic such as Nat King Cole’s “Straighten Up and Fly Right” or Bill Monroe’s “Footprints in the Snow.” From there, the band might just as easily shift gears and perform a monster medley of Celtic dance tunes or some of their own inspired original compositions. While each of these tunes no doubt bears the stamp of “Out To Lunch’s” distinct sound, the respect for the traditions that these tunes come from is readily apparent. Their strong vocals blend to create harmonies that are a distinctive part of Out To Lunch’s musical charm.
