Judy Carmichael has it all:  a virtuosic pianist/singer/songwriter and equally gifted comic. Peggy Lee meets Randy Newman meets Paula Poundstone.”  — Gary Hygom, Executive Director Patchogue Theatre

Judy Carmichael is a great entertainer.  Her playing is masterly and her linking material show her to be a raconteur in the Ustinov mold." — BBC Radio

Carmichael exhibits a truly remarkable ability to channel Peggy Lee's breathy invitingness and her befogged insouciance.
— JazzTimes

“ . . . astounding, flawless, captivating.” — The New York Times.

Grammy nominated pianist/vocalist, Judy Carmichael is considered one of the greatest pianists in the swing tradition and one of the most sensitive vocalists.  Of Judy’s singing, America’s premier jazz magazine, JazzTimes writes:
“Carmichael exhibits a truly remarkable ability to channel Peggy Lee's breathy invitingness and her befogged insouciance (and) echoes the intense perspicacity of the solo albums of Annie Ross. In other words, she winningly blends two of the all-time finest, most intuitive jazz singers.”

Judy Carmichael appears frequently on radio and TV throughout the world and maintains a busy international touring schedule.  She is popular with both jazz and cabaret audiences with her soulful, swinging interpretations of the Great American Songbook, and equally impressive hilarious, improvisational anecdotes.  

Her wit and musical knowledge come together on her weekly radio broadcast/podcast Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired, now in its 18th year, where she talks with celebrated creative people about their love for jazz and how it inspires them, everyone from Seth MacFarlane and Chevy Chase to Robert Redford and Billy Joel.

Her new memoir, Swinger! A Jazz Girl’s Adventures From Hollywood To Harlem was released in December 2017 and is available at www.judycarmichael.com, www.amazon.com and your local bookstore.

Pete Mancini & The Hillside Airmen
with Special Guest Joe Iadanza and His Beautiful Band

Diversion Records Recording Artist Pete Mancini got his start as the frontman and primary songwriter of Butchers Blind, a critically acclaimed rock band from NYC. His debut solo album Foothill Freeway explored the Americana influences that were a hallmark of his work with his former band.
In 2018, he released a live EP, Alive in Patchogue. Since signing with Diversion Records, Mancini has released three singles, Pine Box Derby, DUI Blues, and My Hometown. His second full length album Flying First Class was released in 2019. Mancini’s songs have received glowing reviews and radio airplay around the world, and they continue to win over hearts and minds wherever they are heard.
Over the years, Mancini has opened for acts such as Blues Traveler, Gin Blossoms, Pure Prairie League, Robbie Fulks, James Maddock, Marah, Steve Forbert, Larry Campbell & Theresa Williams, Kevin Gordon, and Iain Matthews.
Born of Italian immigrants and union activists, Joe Iadanza understands the passionate struggle of the American dream. With a voice that recalls Cat Stevens and Harry Chapin and songs that hearken to the impassioned storytelling of Springsteen and Leonard Cohen, this Long Island native’s music is rooted in classic folk: honest and raw.
Joe’s return to the road in 2019 is marked by the July release of his third studio album, Common Man. With words and music by Iadanza, Common Man is a folk-rock love letter about trust, starting over, and charting new relationships. Filled with deeply personal stories, rich symbolism, anthemic hooks, and a classic production vibe, this beautiful sounding record is a leap forward for Iadanza in terms of songwriting, delivery, and production.
Common Man brings Joe Iadanza’s beloved 1970s storytelling style into the twenty-first century, respectfully nodding its head to artists like Cat Stevens, CSNY, and Bruce Springsteen, while confidently owning its own voice; a voice that has truly found something to say.
Common Man is Joe Iadanza’s third studio album, following his critically-acclaimed debut, Traveling Salesman (2008), and his sophomore follow up, All in Good Time (2010). Both of which resulted in extensive touring in the US and Europe.
Common Man features Joe’s favorite ‘wrecking crew’, including co-producer Jagoda (drums), long-time collaborator, Craig Akin (bass), “professor” Paul Silverman (Hammond organ/piano/keys), and the incredibly talented Sophie Buskin (harmony/backing vocals). Every player can be found here supporting Common Man’s rich arrangements without overshadowing them; all while showcasing the unique styles of each band member and giving them room to shine.
Mixed by Jon Castelli (Macklemore, Kesha, Khalid) who co-produced and mixed Traveling Salesman, before moving to LA and training under the legendary Tony Maserati. Common Man gets the a-list mixing treatment that many independent releases lack. The beautiful and subtle mastering work by Dale Becker (Neil Diamond, Donna Summer, Aretha Franklin) taking Jon’s mixes and finishing them with luscious warmth and detail.
Joe’s recent work as a producer for other artists includes Carolann Solebello’s, SHIVER (2018), and Spuyten Duyvil’s, The Social Music Hour, Vol. 1 (2015), which was nominated by Folk Alliance International for Album of the Year.  
Joe Iadanza is returning to the road with solo and regional band concerts to support Common Man through 2019 and 2020. A return to Europe is in the works for the fall of 2020.

MILES TO DAYTON

Come and meet the family you never knew you had. Miles to Dayton’s music happens at a personal level, their message of love blending elements of folk, rock, classical, and funk into an irresistible invitation. The M2D recipe is simple: four-part vocal harmony, clever songwriting, improvisational violin and cello, and an infectious rhythm section that stirs up the creative stew.

"A mix of folk, country and classical music, Miles to Dayton has a very polished sound reminiscent of Nickel Creek. Delivering four-part harmonies and improvisational violin and cello parts, Miles to Dayton is stacked with solid musicianship and is definitely worth checking out." - Relix Magazine
