Grammy-winning Vocalist Cheryl Bentyne & Vocalist/Lyricist Mark Winkler
In Concert at Birdland Theater
Sunday, September 16 at 7:30pm

Birdland Theater is proud to present multiple Grammy-winning vocalist Cheryl Bentyne (The Manhattan Transfer) and platinum-award winning vocalist/lyricist Mark Winkler in celebration of the release of their new CD “Eastern Standard Time.” The concept is this: imagine it’s New York circa 1959 and you stroll into one of those little clubs they had in the Village like The Half Note or The Bon Soir or Chantilly’s. The duo will sing the songs you probably would have heard-written by the likes of Bob Dorough, Fran Landesman and Cy Coleman. Mark and Cheryl filter these cool tunes through today’s lens, then add a pinch of fun.
Bentyne and Winkler will be joined by Allen Farnham on piano, Bill Moring on bass, Alvester Garnett on drums and Matt Garrison on saxophone.
Cheryl Bentyne has been a member of the 9 time Grammy winning group The Manhattan Transfer since 1979.

He was one of Downbeat Magazine’s Rising Male Jazz Singers and has had his songs recorded by over 250 artists including Dianne Reeves.
