Vince Giordano & the Nighthawks will perform from 7 to 8:30 p.m., Sunday, July 14 in a free outdoor concert at the Levitt Pavilion for Performing Arts in downtown Westport.
— an announcement from the Levitt Pavilion
Grammy-winning multi-instrumentalist and bandleader Vince Giordano and his Nighthawks return to the Levitt Pavilion to deliver an extraordinary evening of classic ‘20s and ‘30s standards.
Their music evokes the height of ballroom perfection, combining jazz elegance and swingin’ (or rumba-in’ or cha-cha-cha-in’) style, and gorgeous renditions of ’20s and ’30s chestnuts.
- “An erupting wellspring of euphoria: that would describe the vintage swing emanating from Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks.”
