Grammy Award-winning jazz icon and 9-time Billboard Jazz Charts artist Steve Tyrell is bringing his world-class band to the Arcadia Performing Arts Center and headlining the modern concert hall’s 2016-17 season finale.
Known as American royalty for jazz, Tyrell is one of the few jazz artists handpicked by Frank Sinatra’s family to perform original Sinatra arrangements at Carnegie Hall. Tyrell popularized American jazz in the hit movie Father of the Bride, and has performed for President Bush, at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding, for Prime Minister Tony Blair, and at Buckingham Palace for The Prince of Wales.
Tyrell released nine albums, and every album has made Billboard Jazz charts top 5. His hits “The Way You Look Tonight” and “The Sunny Side of the Street” have reached millions of fans. As weekly radio host of the jazz station KJAZZ 88.1, Steve Tyrell continues to reach new fans and engage loyal jazz aficionados.
