Fish Creek, Wis. (October 11, 2022) – On Friday, October 14, at 7 p.m., Grammy Award-winning vocal group Manhattan Transfer will perform on the Door Community Auditorium (DCA) Main Stage. The DIVA Jazz Orchestra will also make a special guest appearance.
The Manhattan Transfer remains a cornerstone for great pop and jazz hits, a legacy the group has cemented over its illustrious 50-year career, now in the midst of its farewell tour. Founded in 1969, the jazz vocal group has explored a capella, vocalese, swing, standards, Brazilian jazz, rhythm and blues, and pop music. With 29 albums, eight Grammy Awards, a PBS special, and induction into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, this iconic group continues to bring extraordinary melodic and jazz-infused vocals to audiences that span generations. Their top hits include “Operator,” “Tuxedo Junction,” “The Boy from New York City,” “Route 66,” and “Birdland.”
The New York Times called Manhattan Transfer “a winning blend of music and theatricality . . . it has no equals among harmony groups in either stylistic virtuosity or technique.”
Special guest The DIVA Jazz Orchestra is a hard-charging, powerful ensemble of 15 women, all immersed in the history of their craft and in total command of their instruments. The Jazz Times said of the group, “The band punched, kicked, roared, and swung with a disciplined abandon and an unaffected joie de vivre.”
Manhattan Transfer’s performance is made possible with support from underwriting sponsor Cynthia Stiehl & The MMG Foundation in Celebration of the YMCA, as well as supporting sponsors The Cordon Family Foundation, Door County Medical Center, and the James & Nancy Huebner Charitable Foundation.
