Great Jazz to Help Restore Yankee Flyer Mural - May 31, 2015

Seasoned jazz performers Pam Purvis and Bob Ackerman are returning to Nashua for their second benefit performance, at Riverwalk Café and Music Bar on Sunday, May 31 at 7pm. Their music is sophisticated, soulful and swinging, uniquely interpreting standards from the American songbook, jazz classics and original material, with Purvis on vocals and keyboard, Ackerman on the saxophone, clarinet and flute.

Purvis and Ackerman played in 2013 to rave reviews at the Nashua Community Music School, helping to fund “Vivian’s Dream,” the massive historic mural on the wall behind TD Bank on Main Street.

“Pam and Bob are amazing multi-talented musicians and performers who know how to draw in an audience. When Pam had the entire audience scatting, it was magic.”
Marjorie Bollinger Hogan, Music Director, Merrimack Valley Flute Choir

“Purvis and Ackerman emanate harmonic style reminiscent of Lester Young and Billie Holiday.  Purvis’s voice follows Ackerman’s full-bodied horn with authoritative harmony and absolute charm.”
Rosalind L. Picou – Jazz Now

 “…such a refreshingly direct, unaffected way of singing that she reminds me of Cleo Laine or Ella Fitzgerald in her younger days.”
Nancy Bishop – Dallas Morning News

“The strength and variety of her voice comes across on her recordings, but she’s especially charming in front of a live audience. …the most facile voice with the widest range of any jazz vocalist I’ve had the pleasure to hear in several decades.”
Dr. Duane Martin – Texas Ragg, The Music Magazine

Presented by City Arts Nashua, proceeds will be used to help restore the Yankee Flyer Diner mural painted by NH Artist Laureate and Nashua native James Aponovich, located on Main Street next to Citizen’s bank.  Tickets are available on-line until May 30 for $12 plus $1.50 processing fee. Tickets at the door are $15.

Join us for an evening of great jazz, in Nashua’s Riverwalk Café, and support the restoration of our landmark mural at the same time.
