Eli Yamin Blues Band CD Release Concert 

The Eli Yamin Blues Band returns to the Clark Studio Theater at Lincoln Center to perform a homecoming concert in celebration of their new release, I Feel So Glad. Admission $20.

This is no ordinary blues band,” former Living Blues magazine editor Scott Barretta declares in his liner notes to I Feel So Glad, the debut recording by the Eli Yamin Blues Band.  “There’s no denying that this is a unique ensemble,” he rightly says of the group led by pianist/vocalist-composer/arranger Eli Yamin, which features GrammyŠ nominated lead singer Kate McGarry, the master tuba player Bob Stewart and multitalented drummer LaFrae Sci, drums, voice. 

The band will play tunes from the new album including their unique arrangements of Hound Dog, I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free, Trouble of the World, John Henry and Fishin' Blues as well as new arrangements of the band's original hit songs like Rwandan Child and A Healing Song.

 Yamin calls the blues “this ancient and modern music … created in the darkest hour of human suffering and now embraced all over the world.” He goes on, “The blues makes us realize our common humanity.  May we heed its message …” It’s the message that the Eli Yamin Blues Band courageously delivers to a planet that needs it urgently.
