These are standards from 20th Century America, and have been recorded and made famous by artist like Sinatra, Bennett and Nat King Cole; songs that never go out of style and for good reason!

“Pianist Scott Bradley has music degrees from Nazareth College and SUNY Fredonia. If you haven’t seen Scott playing around town, you don’t get out much! You can hear him with The Orient Express Band, The Bill Tiberio Band, and the Bossa Nova Bradley Brothers to name a few.

Saturday the 23rd @ 7:00: Hanna PK

Hanna PK is a vocalist, pianist, and band leader born in South Korea, currently
residing in Rochester NY. When meeting Hanna, it’s not uncommon to wonder how
a young woman born and raised in Korea plays the Blues. But her music makes it
clear she is not only touched by it, but also dedicated to this great art form.
On stage, Hanna’s seemingly sweet and soft-spoken appearance belies her
commanding voice and presence at the piano and as a band leader. Hearing her
strong left hand bass rocking steady with her swinging right hand on the piano, one
cannot deny she has done her homework and is carrying on the tradition. Her
soulful voice often surprises the ‘first timer.”
