Chardavoine is a concrete manifestation of Haitian jazz, a new genre emerging in jazz today. Haitian-born but Brooklyn-bred, the talented guitarist has covered the gambit of musical styles through the waves of his guitar. He is an incredible musician, a creative artist and a refined professional. He represents the best of modern music and the future of jazz, along with his Creole Jazz Ensemble.

Chardavoine is well-known around New York for his association with the late great Dave Valentin, who’s a guest on two of his albums. Last year he had the privilege of playing at Aretha Franklin’s birthday bash with the Tito Puente Jr. orchestra.

His latest release,“The Tribute”, which commemorates the Haitian earthquake victims, showcases his talents – not only as an excellent musician but also as a great creative and seasoned arranger. His previous CD, “Fifth Season”, has been described as funky jazz, played with soul. It’s guitar oriented in the style of George Benson, and lyrical in the style of Stevie Wonder.”

The ensemble features Hilario Bell on drums, Tom McCormick on sax, Rafael Valencia on bass, and Felix Gomez on piano and keys.

BRING YOUR OWN … WHATEVER! The theater boasts cabaret-style table seating, where patrons can bring their own food and drinks, including alcohol. Music courtesy of KCC Productions.
