Jazz Brunch with the Aloysius Brown Quartet

Where The Roxy Hotel NYC 2 6th Ave, New York, NY 10013, USA
Originally put together as the house band at Honey's Hideaway, one of the few remaining Catskills resort cocktail lounges, Al Brown and his Casual Fears cut across a broad swath of musical landscapes. The drummer Mel Gregg cut his teeth playing luaus in his native Hawaii. Known on the big island as the Howling Haolie, Gregg infuses every genre with an island style bounce. T.T. "Fingers" Mendoza was and is the premiere rehearsal pianist for all the big shows on the Great White Way. His touch and timing are so impeccable Andrew Lloyd Webber wept openly the first he heard him play. Bassist Gabe Andruzzi spent 10 years recording and touring with funk punk legends The Rapture. He is rumored to be able to eat a whole watermelon in a single sitting. Finally, bandleader/saxophonist/percussionist, Aloysius Brown is a fun loving but tyrannical frontman. Know as much for his tendency to berate both the the band and the audience mid performance as he is for the sweet tone of his alto and his million dollar smile, he is entertainment personified.
