Gershwin Cries Mary

George Gershwin and Jimi Hendrix meet again, this time in cyberspace!

For this concert we’re sonically traversing the worlds of clever lyric twists of the 1920’s with Jimi Hendrix’s psychedelic spins that I’m not sure if anyone fully understands what he’s talking about. The place that these two meet is the holy land of GREAT MUSIC!

Vocalist Lisa Hightower grew up in a rock band — she knows Jimi’s music inside out. Then she morphed over to jazz while working a waitress gig at the Rancho Sante Fe Inn. Ella became her hero and now years later we’re illuminating both of these great composers for a night of inspired music.

The band includes some of the best with Tripp Sprague on sax and flute, Gunnar Biggs on bass, Duncan Moore on drums, Lisa Hightower on vocals, and Peter Sprague on guitar.

Price of admission? Actually the concert is free but we will have a “virtual tip jar” complete with PayPal, Zelle and Venmo info for you to donate whatever you feel good about. Also good old snail mailing checks works too. We’d love for this to work out too.
