Boca Raton, FL, June 23, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The Bridge Hotel continues to “jazz up” summer nights with the popular Jazz, Bossa & Blues Series Live at the Top of the Bridge. Now a few weeks into the series, the top names in South Florida Jazz are coming together every Wednesday and fans are filling the penthouse level of the hotel to soak in the great music and the incredible views. Beatriz Malnic, heralded with the Brazilian Press Award as the “Best Brazilian Singer in the United States,” kicked off Jazz, Bossa & Blues with a bang on June 1st and will be back by popular demand on July 20th. On June 8th, Nicole Henry played to a packed house, having just flown in from New York where she was a guest soloist at a Friars Club event honoring Connie Francis.
“We have had a great turnout with such a positive response from audiences,” commented series producer Joseph Mirrione. “It’s unusual to have this caliber of talent appearing in what is usually considered to be the ‘off-season’. People recognize that and they are coming out in record numbers. They love it! Wednesday is the new Friday!”
The series continues June 22nd with multi-instrumentalist Anthony Corrado. Joined by a talented trio of musicians, Corrado is practically a one-man-band himself, playing tenor, alto and soprano sax, clarinet, flute, Irish flute, guitar, bass and trumpet. Corrado’s show features the music of Jazz legends such as John Coltrane and Thelonius Monk as well as the more contemporary sounds of artists like Chuck Mangione, George Benson and Chick Corea. June 29th features sax legend Turk Mauro and July 6th brings Jorge Garcia and Grammy Award winner Federico Britos.
Carmen’s, the “Top of the Bridge” venue which operates as a full-service restaurant Thursday through Sunday, has transformed on Wednesday nights into an intimate New York-style upscale lounge, featuring a full bar, sumptuous small plates and a sweeping panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean and Boca marinas. Attendees can mix and mingle with other music lovers on the exclusive penthouse level of the Bridge Hotel every Wednesday night through the summer.
