SUMMIT, NJ - Reeves-Reed Arboretum (RRA) continues its Sounds of a Summer Night Concert Series August 21 with a performance by he Steve Teti Combo.  The Combo will feature jazz pianist Steve Teti on the keyboards, accompanied by a sax player and vocalist.

Both a jazz and classical pianist, Teti studied music at the Manhattan School of Music.  Originally from Maplewood, NJ, he currently resides in Hoboken.  Teti led a jazz trio at the Highlawn Pavilion for three years, and is currently the pianist at The Manor in West Orange.  He also performs regularly with the Stardust Big Band, a 17-piece orchestra.

Teti and his combo will perform tunes from The Great American Songbook, which has been described as “America’s classical music,”  The Great American Songbook is a canon of the most important and most influential American popular songs of the 20th Century.  Principally taken from the scores of Broadway musical theatre and Hollywood films from the 1920s through the 1950s, the songs, with witty, urbane lyrics and teasingly unexpected rhymes, combine memorable melodies which have endured them throughout the years.
 
 

The Arboretum grounds will close to the general public at 5 p.m., reopen to concertgoers at 6 p.m. for picnicking, with the concert to begin at 7 p.m. Guests are encouraged to bring folding chairs and blankets. There is a minimum $10 donation at the door with admission free to RRA members, courtesy of underwriting by Investors Savings Bank.

Sounds of a Summer Night is made possible, in part, by support from Nick and Tracy McKee, and by the Grand Summit Hotel.  For more information about the series visit www.reeves-reedarboretum.org, or call, 908-273-8787.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
