NEW BRUNSWICK—State Theatre will present The Manhattan Transfer Swings Christmas on Friday, Dec.14, at 8 p.m. The 10-time Grammy® Award- winning jazz vocal group will perform holiday hits from their two Christmas albums, An Acappella Christmas and The Christmas Album. Tickets range from $30-70.
The members of The Manhattan Transfer include Tim Hauser, Janis Siegel, Cheryl Bentyne, and Alan Paul. Holiday songs in the program will include “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” “Let it Snow, Let it Snow,” “White Christmas,” “Merry Christmas Baby,” and more.
It’s been just about 40 years since Tim Hauser, a former New York City cab driver aspired to form a harmony vocal quartet that could authentically embrace varied musical styles, and still create something wholly unique in the field of American popular song. The group is currently working on a special project called The Vaults to commemorate its 40th anniversary of incredible vocal jazz.
