Chrissy Gardner, singer/songwriter/pianist, and her band return to Lyric Hall with special guest, Professor John - the blues master from Chicago!  With their forces joined, this promises to be a thrilling evening of soul-satisfying music that will have you cheering for more!

Doors open at 7:30.  BYOB.  A complimentary glass of wine and light refreshments will be served.



Chrissy Gardner began her career Chicago, Illinois where she recorded her first, critically acclaimed album, Alabaster Room.  She has an unaffected voice that is often compared to Janis Joplin in one phrase and Joni Mitchel in another.  She captivates audiences with her incredibly passionate and candid performances of her original blues, old-school R&B and contemporary music.  She is a proud member of A Broken Umbrella Theater in New Haven for whom she has scored three musicals.

Professor John has been a professional pianist, singer and bandleader for nearly 20 years. Originally from New York City, he has made his greatest mark in Chicago.  His skills on the ivories are jaw-dropping and he always provides nothing less than a briliant performance.

Chrissy and John will be joined on stage by a cast of Connecticut's finest musicians including David Keith on drums, Megan Keith on back-up vocals, Robert Messore on guitar and bass, Tim Kane on trumpet and Naomi Senzer on flute.
