Danny Sinoff Trio
With Patricia Dean on drums and Scott Smith on bass.
"Sinoff is always a treat. His Sinatra-like vocals dig mightily into the Great American Songbook, particularly Sinatra covers. While he is a fine singer, and has a strong following in that regard, I find his piano solos even more enjoyable as he takes familiar material to unexpected places."

Randy Sandke Quintet
Our area had a great stroke of luck when brilliant trumpeter Randy Sandke moved from New York to make his home in Venice. Sandke has performed at festivals, clubs, and concerts around the world, toured Europe over forty times and performed extensively throughout Japan, the U.S., Canada, and India. Randy has recorded over twenty albums as a leader. Among the artists with whom he has recorded are Benny Goodman, Kenny Barron, Dick Hyman, Mulgrew Miller, Bill Charlap, Eric Reed, Frank Wess, Ray Anderson, Chris Potter, Sweets Edison, Flip Phillips, Scott Hamilton, Wycliffe Gordon, Warren Vache, and Mel Lewis. Singers include Mel Torme, Jon Hendricks, Rosemary Clooney, Cab Calloway, John Pizzarelli, Gregory Hines, Art Garfunkel, Barbara Carroll, Dr. John, Karrin Allyson, Susannah McCorkle, as well as appearances with Diane Reeves, Sting, Elton John, Billy Joel, Bette Midler, James Taylor, Chaka Khan, Ruth Brown, Billy Eckstine, and Joe Williams.
For the South County Jazz Club concert at the Venice Presbyterian Church, Sandke will be accompanied by Peter Barenbregge on sax, Joe Delaney piano, Don Mopsick bass and Dave Pruyn drums.
World- class singer Stephanie Nakasian will make her third appearance for the club, accompanied by Richard Drexler piano, Don Mopsick bass and Dave Pruyn drums. She first hit the scene with Jon Hendricks and Company, and it has been straight ahead ever since.
She has been a frequent guest artist with the Jim Cullum Band on the internationally syndicated Riverwalk Jazz show. She portrayed herself on the show with Dick Hyman for tributes to composers Hoagy Carmichael and Walter Donaldson. She continues to appear at several international festivals and national music education conferences, and sang with notables such as Harry Allen, Wycliffe Gordon, Nicki Parrott, Urbie Green, Pat Metheny, Clark Terry, Scott Hamilton, Hank Jones, Roy Haynes and Annie Ross. Stephanie currently teaches voice at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia and the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia.
