George Cole Quintet

Friday, August 05, 2011 |7 & 8:30 PM

  • For Everyone

The George Cole Quintet’s superbly crafted and melodically sophisticated original music brings to mind George Gershwin, Johnny Mercer, and Cole Porter. The group features George’s crooning vocals and hot guitar playing and romantic duets with vocalist, Molly Mahoney. The mix of high energy guitar playing, soaring violin flights by Julian Smedley, and propulsive rhythm guitar creates a dynamic musical experience.
