Bryan Carter Wishes You A Swangin’ Christmas

December 16 @ 8:00 pm

“Bryan Carter Wishes You A Swangin’ Christmas” is a Holiday-themed concert reminiscent of the delightful musical television specials from the 1950’s and 60’s. Vocalist Martina DaSilva joins Bryan Carter & The Swangers for a soulfully-epic evening of holiday classics that the entire family can enjoy!

With a confidence reflecting an instrumental and compositional maturity that both belie his age and announce the arrival of a remarkable talent, Bryan Carter exudes what promises a highly successful career.

Shortly after completing his training at The Juilliard School in New York City and still at the very outset of his career, Carter has already played and/or recorded with many notable artists including Clark Terry, McCoy Tyner, Wynton Marsalis, Marcus Roberts, Kenny Barron, Michael Feinstein and Kurt Elling.

Bryan is currently touring across the world with his band, “The Swangers”, a diverse semi-acoustic band built upon a foundation of brash eclecticism as well as it’s expanded “concert-driven” counterpart, “The Young Swangers Orchestra”. He also served as the house drummer for NBC’S “Maya & Marty” starring Maya Rudolph, Keenan Thompson and Martin Short. The show has featured guests including Miley Cyrus, Nick Jonas, Tom Hanks, Drake, Steve Martin and Tina Fey.

Aside from performing,  Carter conducts clinics, master-classes and workshops at schools, colleges and universities around the world. Currently Carter served as a founding teaching artist for the Jazz at Lincoln Center, “Jazz for Young People” program in New York City. As a proud member of the LGBTQIA+ Community, Bryan is committed to the creation of safe spaces for young musicians from all walks of life. This past summer Carter produced, “Jazz at Pride: A Celebration of the LGBTQIA+ Community within the Jazz Community”. This landmark event brought together over thirty musicians and coincided with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots.
