Arranged by the Music Advisory Committee

Joined by Brazilian bassist, Eduardo Belo, and drummer, Nick Anderson, Olli Soikkeli and Julien Labro will be performing music from their release as well as new takes on jazz standards, Gypsy repertoire and new original compositions.

French accordionist, Julien Labro, and Finnish guitarist, Olli Soikkeli met each other at a festival in Colorado in 2016.  Both based in New York City, they decided to join forces and collaborate on playing, writing originals as well as arrangements drawing from their diverse musical background. After performing several shows in NYC and across the East Coast, they went into the studio to document some of the music, which led to Rise & Grind (2017), their latest recording project.

The Great Neck Library Music Advisory Committee, now in its 47th year, is co-chaired by founding member Gabe Chieco and Michele Ganz, and includes members Mary Dehn and Estelle Pace. This all volunteer committee of Great Neck residents represents a wide range of musical experience and performance.

Register by calling 466-8055, ext. 208 or register online beginning September 18.
