Cool Struttin'
$15 music/$10 minimum. Reservations 203-792-1500

Pam Bujese, vocals    Howie Bujese, violin   
Richard Neal, guitar    Chris Bishop, bass

"Cool Struttin's unique style and true feel for the swing era make them a real pleasure to see live."—Michael Lauretano

Cool Struttin' plays the music from Jazz's Golden Age and the wonderful debonair lyrics of the 1930s, '40s and '50s. They bring back gems from The Great American Songbook by such greats as the Gershwins, Cole Porter, Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen, and Duke Ellington. The set list includes classics such as This Can't Be Love, I've Got A Crush On You, Let's Get Away From It All, Stella by Starlight, and of course, the awesome Makin' Whoopie. With Ms. Bujese singing lead, the three gentlemen pitch in on vocals for some delicious three and four-part harmonies.

"This music strikes a chord with people," says Pam. "No matter what kind of music you listen to, there's something about this you can't help but like." With their inviting style and engaging renditions, this cool quartet creates a special evening not to be missed. This performance is a re-schedule from their snowed-out annual Valentine's Show!
