Event Description

Join four-time World Series Champion, Latin Grammy Nominated guitarist, and composer Bernie Williams and His All-Star Band for an evening of music featuring fusions of jazz, rock, and the tropical rhythms of Williams’ Latin heritage. Growing up in Puerto Rico, Bernie Williams discovered his love for baseball and music at roughly the same time. At the age of eight he fell in love with the sounds of a flamenco guitar his merchant-marine father brought home from Spain, and also felt the same exhilaration when he first picked up a baseball bat. In his 16-year career patrolling centerfield for the New York Yankees, his passion for music never waned, and the sound of his guitar would often be heard emanating from the clubhouse or during team flights. In addition to two acclaimed albums he also has a Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Performance from the prestigious Manhattan School of Music.
