Award-winning singer, saxophonist, songwriter and entertainer, Danny Bacher, headlines the third annual Palladium Jazz Awards. This year the awards show celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Al Downing Tampa Bay Jazz Association.

Bacher makes hot jazz and pop with influences from Louis Prima and Mel Torme. In 2020, a Jazz Times’ readers poll Danny was chosen as one of the top three jazz vocalists, along with Kurt Elling and Gregory Porter.

Danny will appear as part of a quintet, featuring:

Alejandro Arenas – bass
Rick Costa – drums
John O’Leary – piano
James Suggs – trumpet

The Al Downing Jazz All-Stars will open the show.

An open jam session will follow the show in the Side Door, led by La Lucha: John C. O’Leary on piano, Alejandro Arenas, bass, and Mark Feinman, drums. No tickets are required for the jam session.

The Palladium Jazz Awards will be presented at intermission.

Food trucks will be in the parking lot after the show and folks attending the jam session can bring their food into the Side Door.
