Whether it is a collection of rehearsed tunes or impromptu, the music will send you to a zone of good energy and artistic vibes.
Gerry Eastman has emerged as a prominent musician on the New York music scene
with work as a composer, producer, bassist, arranger, conductor, and bandleader under
his belt. It is, however, his remarkable fluidity on the guitar that makes him stand out
from the rest. In 1981, Gerry Eastman founded the Williamsburg Music Center in Williamsburg
Brooklyn, NY. This institution exists to foster the creation, performance, and
appreciation of American classical music. It is Brooklyn’s only black-owned and operated
non-profit, jazz institution, and the only one in New York City to offer classes and
workshops in jazz history and performance.
Carlton Holmes is one of New York’s premiere pianists. A post-graduate of
Manhattan School of Music, Carlton has performed, recorded and travelled the world

Santana, to Max Roach, Regina Belle and Luther Vandross. Carlton’s most recent CD
“You Me and I” was released in 2010. You can pick up his own music HERE.
