Critically-acclaimed composer, guitarist, songwriter, singer and bandleader Howard Fishman has toured the world as a headliner for nearly two decades, fronting ensembles versed in pop, New Orleans jazz, country, bluegrass, classical, punk, gospel and experimental music, but tied to no particular genre. Howard's band will include the following:

Guitar: Howard Fishman, composer, guitarist and bandleader, has come to be recognized as one of today's most agile interpreters of the American songbook. The All-Music Guide has called him "an important force in creative music," and The New York Times has written that his work "transcends time and idiom."

Violin: Charles Burnham is an American violinist and composer. He has a unique highly imaginative style that crosses genres, including bluegrass, delta punk, free jazz, blues, classical and chamber jazz. He was a member of the String Trio of New York, and currently plays in the 52nd Street Blues Project, Hidden City, We Free StRings, Improvising Chamber Ensemble and the Kropotkins.

Trombone: Andrae Murchison currently resides in New York City where he has had the honor to work and share the stage with Roy Hargrove, Common, Duke Ellington Orchestra, Count Basie Orchestra, Lionel Hampton Orchestra, Dennis Edwards and the Temptations, Four Tops, Brian McKnight, Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Ledisi, Glady’s Knight, Aretha Franklin, Harry Connick, and of course, Howard Fishman.

Upright bass: Nathan Peck is based in New York City and has performed with a wide range of artists such as Maynard Ferguson, Wynton Marsalis, Alex Skolnick, Mark Murphy, Vernon Reid, Bonnie Tyler, Sting and has performed in over 30 countries.

Chuck Lamb Quartet

Tickets are $25 in advance & $30 at door

What do Riverdance, the Albany Symphony, the Brubeck Brothers Quartet, NRS Recording Studios and The Chronicles all have in common? They all have members performing with the Chuck Lamb Group at UPH for the Saratoga CD Release Concert of Chuck's new contemporary jazz/fusion CD!
After touring the country and the world with my own groups and with the Brubeck Brothers Quartet, my newest CD, "North By Northeast," represents my own take on some of those travels and my getting reacquainted with the beautiful Northeast. The CD features my original "acoustic fusion" music played with my talented friends in Colorado and New York, who, collectively, have performed with Riverdance, the Albany Symphony, The Band, Bela Fleck and more! I am thrilled to say that Universal Preservation Hall (UPH) in Saratoga Springs will be hosting a CD Release Concert/Party to celebrate! I hope that you can make it and help us spread the word.
