Stony Brook, NY - December 13, 2016 - An impressive jazz event will take place this January at WMHO’s Educational & Cultural Center featuring singer, saxophonist and entertainer, Danny Bacher, accompanied by the compelling sounds of Trumpeter Tom Manuel and his 11-piece Jazz Loft Big Band.

He has toured internationally and worked with world-class talents in music, theater, comedy and is also a proud member of the New York Friars Club.
"Danny Bacher is reminiscent of 'triple talent' icons such as Louis Armstrong and Sammy Davis, Jr…..who can hold his own improvising on soprano sax or scatting with the best musicians on the scene…he has a natural flair for comedy and a voice full of soul."- Roseanna Vitro, Grammy® Nominated Jazz Vocalist & Educator; “A prodigiously talented musical preservationist.” - Stephen Holden, The New York Times.
