The Hot Sardines with Nellie McKay

The Hot Sardines with Nellie McKay

This season, Carnegie Hall Citywide presents five nights of genre-spanning music in July, featuring Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble, The Baylor Project, Squirrel Nut Zippers, The Broadway Simfonietta, and The Hot Sardines Featuring Nellie McKay.

“For more than four decades, Carnegie Hall has partnered with community organizations in all five boroughs, offering free performances by renowned mainstage artists and rising musical stars in New York City neighborhoods, bringing together local residents and people from all over to share in great music,” said Clive Gillinson, Carnegie Hall’s Executive and Artistic Director. “As part of this commitment to community, we are thrilled to return to Bryant Park this summer, presenting five fantastic concerts, kicking off next season’s Carnegie Hall Citywide series.”

Fueled by the belief that classic jazz feeds the heart and soul, The Hot Sardines is making a name for itself as “one of the best jazz bands in New York today” (Forbes). The Hot Sardines have performed at the Newport and Montreal jazz festivals, sold out venues from Chicago to New York to London, and reached the top spot on the iTunes jazz chart. In this free performance in Bryant Park, they welcome guest vocalist Nellie McKay, a first-rate entertainer described as a “renegade songwriter with an ultra- flexible Great American Songbook sensibility. McKay finds modern resonances everywhere” (Rolling Stone).
