Augustana Arts’ has kicked off their 2013 – 2014 Concert Series presenting Neil Bridge 7+ with Karen Lee,  September 7th. Check out the following review by Byran Goldstein. The sun is setting, the Christmas lights are lit, and I am sitting in the beautiful courtyard of a church with a picnic dinner set, on a lovely Shabbos evening. I don’t normally go to church on Saturday night, but this isn’t just any evening gathering. This event marks the first performance of the Augustana Arts series and the excitement is felt in the air. The group consists of the piano player and bandleader, Neil Bridge, on keys, his lovely wife Karen Lee of vocals and dance, PapiRay Pacheco and Paul Romaine on percussion, Chuck Schneider on sax, Derek Banach on trumpet, Tom Ball on bone, and my teacher, Mr. Ron Bland on bass.   Click here to read the rest of the review.
