We are very happy to welcome this swinging trio back to Rye for a performance timed for all ages.  Spend an afternoon with us to kick off our Summer Music Series with these great entertainers.  Sample some of their signature tunes at their website: http://www.benbaldwinandthebignote.com/.

 

About Ben Baldwin and the Big Note:  Few groups can do justice to the swinging sophistication of Fred Astaire, the gospel power of Al Green, the rocking rhythms of Chuck Berry and the jumping jive of Louis Jordan the way the Big Note spontaneously can.
