On Friday, June 7, 8 p.m. Last year, Leonieke Scheuble made her debut performance with Marty Eigen’s Beacon Hill Jazz Band at the age of ten years old. On Friday, June 7, the award winning eleven-year-old will return. In March of this year, Leonieke won the International Women in Jazz “Youth in Action” award for musicians under the age of 18. Leonieke Scheuble is a gifted pianist who has a rare talent for blues and jazz improvisation at an unusually young age.
This will be the band’s 30th appearance at the Arts Center. Once again, the band is striving to raise the bar of excellence by having some of the best musicians in the area, including Fred Fischer on piano and vocals, Nancy Nelson on vocals, Bill Ash on trumpet and Leonieke’s father Nick Scheuble on drums.
All of those who attended last year’s sold-out concert know what a treat they are in for and for those that did not get a chance to attend you get another chance. Tickets are $16 in advance, $20 ($18 for WAC members, $10 for students) at the door.
The Improvables will perform a Family-Friendly Show on Saturday, June 8 at 8 PM. Each show is unique. Laugh loud and often as the troupe performs a series of skits from pre-written prompts or audience suggestions. Bring friends and enjoy the wacky world that imagination and improv can create. The Improvables have been the longest running comedy troupe at the Center and continually produce a unique evening filled with comedy games that will keep them on their toes and the audience doubled over from hysterical laughter. Tickets are $8 for all.
