(Published: March 27, 2017)

The Modernistics will perform Music and Dance from the Great American Songbook on Saturday, April 1 at 2:00 pm, at the Ventress Memorial Library, 15 Library Plaza, Marshfield MA 02050. Free admission. Information: Chris Woods, 781-834-5535. Reception following.

The Modernistics (Ted Powers, guitar, ukulele, tap and vocals; Pamela Powers, tap and vocals; Peter H. Bloom, flute; and Mark Leighton, guitar) will perform sizzling bebop tunes by Charlie Parker, Bud Powell and others, plus high-energy song and dance numbers from the Great American Songbook. Expect an exhilarating mix with favorites like Blue Skies, Let's Misbehave, Sunny Side of the Street, Top Hat, Paper Moon, and the Ellington hit tune It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing.

Peter H. Bloom, praised for his "hip, jazzy flute work" (allaboutjazz.com), has concertized with jazz and classical ensembles in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand and is featured on more than 40 CDs. He is a veteran of the illustrious Aardvark Jazz Orchestra (44th season). Mark Leighton is acclaimed as a jazz and classical guitarist, performs across the Northeast, and serves on the faculties of Colby College and St. George's School. Ted Powers' career in jazz, blues, and pop includes several years as a solo performer in the south of France and tap-dancing in the U.S. with the legendary Jimmy "Sir Slyde" Mitchell. Pamela Powers has performed and taught in the United States, Germany and England. She studied with Harold Nicholas of the iconic Nicholas Brothers and with renowned Broadway choreographer Charles Hughes.
