The Manhattan Transfer and Take 6
THE MANHATTAN TRANSFER and TAKE 6, two of the most acclaimed, award-winning vocal groups in pop music, create an unforgettable concert event that will thrill audiences of all ages. Between them, the two groups boast a remarkable 20 Grammy Awards, and a range of styles that covers nearly every genre of popular music; from jazz to swing, from gospel and R&B to pop.

As The Manhattan Transfer mark the 40th Anniversary of their debut recording on Atlantic Records, original members Janis Siegal, Alan Paul and Cheryl Bentyne roll out a thrilling career retrospective with the help of newest member Trist Curless.

Take 6 will share six virtuosic voices united in crystal clear harmony, against a backdrop of syncopated rhythms, innovative arrangements, and funky grooves. This show combines unexpected twists and turns to create a once-in-a-lifetime event. Heralded by Quincy Jones as the “baddest vocal cats on the planet!” Take 6 (Claude McKnight, Mark Kibble, Joel Kibble, Dave Thomas, Alvin Chea and Khristian Dentley), is the quintessential a cappella group and model for vocal genius.

Opening Performance by the Charleston Jazz Orchestra

The Charleston Jazz Orchestra (CJO) led by Music Director, Charlton Singleton, will open for The Manhattan Transfer and Take 6. The CJO is comprised of the crème de la crème of South Carolina jazz musicians. This Holy City big band orchestra is an entertaining, educational and stellar example of the rich history and legacy of jazz in Charleston. The CJO has become known for unique, enthusiastically received concerts that contribute mightily to the ever-evolving Lowcountry arts scene.
