StellanovasWinter Music Series Events

Sunday January 29st ~ 4:00-6:00pm The Stellanovas ~ café jazz
New to the Winter Series, The Stellanovas play “cafe jazz” -intimate, swinging, original, dynamic music accompanied by unique instrumentation including the violin, accordion, cello, ukulele, Hawaiian guitar, drums, electric guitar, and vocals. Originals plus inventive interpretations of classic jazz standards and eclectic pop.

“Multi-instrumentalist Chris Wagoner and his wife Mary Gaines are masters of string swing music. They call it “cafe jazz”, but that seems too calm. Their music is equal parts Hawaiian luau and Parisian wedding party. The love they bring to their music is as apparent as the precision with which they make it.” Andy Moore, producer of WI Public TV’s “30 Minute Music Hour.
