Saturday, January 20th 2024 | 5:30pm-10pm | Pompano Beach

Old Town Pompano Beach comes to life with a stunning evening that includes two main concerts.

Ms. Lisa Fischer & Grand Baton

After four decades of featured background singing with icons like The Rolling Stones, Chaka Khan, Luther Vandross, Tina Turner, and Nine Inch Nails, Lisa Fischer set out to take center stage with her own award-winning style. The 2013 Best Documentary Oscar winning film, “Twenty Feet from Stardom,” altered the course of Fischer’s musical journey by telling her story through clips of her legendary duets with Mick Jagger and Sting. The film left audiences eager to hear more, leading to her organic fusion of Caribbean psychedelic soul and jazzy progressive rock which has been exciting fans worldwide! Lisa Fischer will take the stage with Grand Baton, an Afro-Caribbean progressive rock and jazz fusion band. Fischer and Grand Baton have performed at several jazz festivals including The Monterey Jazz Festival, The Newport Jazz Festival, and The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

An Evening with Branford Marsalis

After four decades in the international spotlight, the achievements of saxophonist Branford Marsalis continue to grow. From his initial recognition as a young jazz lion, he has expanded his vision as an instrumentalist, composer, bandleader, and educator, crossing stylistic boundaries while maintaining an unwavering creative integrity. In the process, he has become a multi award-winning artist with three Grammys, a citation by the National Endowment for the Arts as a Jazz Master, and an avatar of contemporary artistic excellence.
