Harlem Fave Maurice Hines Is “Tappin Thru Life” With The DIVA Jazz Orchestra

maurice-hines1With tap dancer, vocalist and Harlem native Maurice Hines (above left), music director and drummer Sherrie Maricle, pianist Jackie Warren, bassist Amy Shook, alto saxophonist Alexa Tarantino, tenor saxophonist Roxy Coss, baritone saxophonist Lauren Sevian, lead trumpeter Liesl Whitaker, trumpeter Jami Dauber, and trombonist Sara Jacovino.

Broadway legend Maurice Hines  who has performed at the Apollo Theater, performed with Harlem’s Melba Moore, in the movie The Cotton Club, taps through his incredible career in show business in this celebration of song and dance. Hines pays tribute to his brother, Gregory, and the performers who inspired him—from Frank Sinatra to Lena Horne—with standards like “Luck Be A Lady,” “Smile,” “It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing),” and more. Backed by the all-female DIVA Jazz Orchestra, who proudly calls Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola its “New York City home,” this infectious show promises a memorable evening at our most intimate performance space.

Headliner sets are 7:30pm, 9:30pm (unless noted otherwise)
