Danny Lipsitz & The Brass Tacks : Free Concert

Levitt Pavilion For The Performing Arts
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM


Danny Lipsitz and The Brass Tacks: A Not Impartial Birth of Rock ‘n’ Roll Featuring the Saxophone

Danny Lipsitz and The Brass Tacks tackle the fascinating history of the saxophone's influence on rock 'n' roll music. From its beginnings in jazz and swing music, rock 'n' roll heavily featured the saxophone until the electric guitar took over as the premiere rock instrument thanks to artists like Chuck Berry and The Beatles. Through music and stories, The Brass Tacks - with their characteristic high energy and in-your-face performance style - will cover the most influential rock saxophone solos of this era including music by Count Basie, Lionel Hampton, Louis Jordan, Ray Charles, and Fats Domino. 

Don't miss this 8-piece band and musical extravaganza!

Danny Lipsitz is a saxophone/woodwinds player, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, inventor, and educator. Performing in a variety of genres, Lipsitz has appeared in over 15 countries and been a sideman to artists like The Gordon Webster Swing Band, Ronnie Spector, Mark Hudson (Aerosmith, Ringo Starr, Ozzy Osbourne), Denny Laine (Wings, The Moody Blues), Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge), Billy Vera, Dr. Demento Covered in Punk, Ginkgoa, The Avalon Jazz Band, The Hot Sardines, Lucky Chops Brass Band, The Losers Lounge and Chris Norton. Danny is also an active bandleader and arranger with his high energy jazz/swing/rock 'n' roll band: The Brass Tacks. In 2014-2015, Danny was one of five members of the inaugural Joe's Pub Working Group at Joe's Pub at the Public Theater in New York City.
