ABOUT THE ENTERTAINERS

Marc Monteson Quartet with Linda Cole bad photoMarc Monteson Quartet, Special guest Linda Cole | Live music / Standards: Marc Monteson has a reputation as being a long-standing stakeholder with all things New Smyrna Beach as he continues to create, promote and conduct events that showcase the city.  He will perform songs from the great American songbook from 3 PM to 3:30 PM. Linda Cole will take the stage from 3:30 PM until 4:15 PM. Linda relocated to the Central Florida area in 1991 and began singing “straight ahead jazz” and standards. She is a part of the famous Cole family of singers (including Natalie, Freddy, and of course the patriarch Nat King Cole), but Linda has shown her audience time after time that she is also her own unique voice. She is a storyteller, always inviting the audience to take a journey with her. The singers will be backed by Brian Petras, keyboards; Ron Gilotti, bass and Tracy Alexander, drums.

Harpist Bazaar Jazz duo photoHarpist Bizaar Jazz Duo | Live Jazz / Standards: Kathleen Bonnie Attanasi is a graduate of Indiana University School of Music. She holds a MM Degree from the Catholic University of America and has performed with Ray Charles, Moody Blues, Mannheim Steamroller, Johnny Mathis & Sammie Davis Jr.  Eddie Marshall is a saxophonist / flutist from Southern California moving to Florida in the mid 1970’s.

2018 10 18 statesboro 1Pickin’ and Grinnin’ | Live kids sing-along: Pickin’ & Grinnin’ is inspired by the Hee-Haw TV show segment of the same name. Andy and Sarah dress like farmers in overalls and gingham shirts and play short (one minute or so) versions of old-timey hoe-downs interspersed with a few corny farm-oriented jokes. For example, we might tell a few jokes about cows, then play a bit of “Milk Cow Blues,” chicken and egg jokes then play ‘Chicken Dance,’ etc.  They get kids (or adults) up to play the washtub bass and washboard, and ‘join the band’ for photo ops. Afterwards, they let participating kids pick a small prize from the “Farm Animal Career Prognosticator.”

Ella & The Bossa BeatElla & The Bossa Beat | Live Samba & Bossa Nova Music: Come and experience the beautiful voice of Ella Borges on piano & vocals along with her father Magrus Borges on drums and Marco Bojorquez on bass to form ‘Ella & The Bossa Beat’. Magrus was the drummer of the original ‘Girl from Ipanema’ Astrud Gilberto, and now tours and records with Bebel Gilberto (daughter of legendary Joao Gilberto) and Grace Jones.While in Orlando, they play in various venues in the Orlando area, and specialize in Bossa Nova, Samba & American Jazz and Pop styles. Ella is currently studying music and International Business at Stetson University. She is also recording original songs for her new CD to be released in Spring 2019. Her soulful voice, singing both in English and Portuguese together with the Brazilian grooves of the drums and the heartbeat of the bass, are perfect for a show at Images.
