Backed by the All-Stars, a supporting cast of skilled instrumentalists, Seiger taps directly into the vibe of the ‘20s and ‘30s jazz ballads and dance tunes. With a voice that conjures the spirit of Louis Armstrong, Seiger exudes old-school charm and an expressive musicality, whether the bandleader is belting out a love song or letting loose with a brassy melody on his trumpet.
While the 8 p.m. concert on Thursday, Jan. 7 will have a small live audience of up to 25 people, per COVID-19 guidelines (doors at 7:30 pm, $20 suggested donation), music lovers who would prefer to enjoy the concert from home can do so by streaming the performance online via Twitch.
