Ferrante- Jazz, Friday June 29

Last Saturday night, Felix & the Cats entertained a crowd of patrons, and they will be back for another great performance Friday night, starting at 9:30 PM. There will be a group of 10 performers to entertain Stamford Downtown and its jazz fans. Bring your special one for a night of unforgettable jazz!

Felix & the Cats was formed by Felix Endico who has studied with the likes of “Wild Bill Davis”, the Duke Ellignton musician and arranger of the Count Basie classic “April in Paris”. He also has had the honor of sitting in with Erskine Hawkin’s band, of “Tuxedo Junction” fame and the last to play the Savoy Ballroom. Felix has also been influenced by both R&B legend Jimmy “Preacher” Robins as well as Red Blazer regular Sol Yaged (“The Benny Goodman Clone”). Needless to say these influences have been incorporated into the Cats’ repertoire that is guaranteed to delight.

  Presently, the Cats’ Big Band musicians have also joined with young Swing Turks from the Juilliard Jazz program, transporting audiences back in time to the New York and Chicago jazz clubs of the 1930’s. Their book includes arrangements from the Henderson Brothers, Jimmy Mundy and Sy Oliver, originators of the Big Band sounds of Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey and Artie Shaw. While their passion is Swing, Felix’s band has built a diverse catalog over the years to include Blues, R&B, Latin and Rock. They have charmed audiences at venues such as Well’s of Harlem, The Rainbow Room and Swing 46, which have claimed Felix and the Cats as their house band over the past 15 years. They were also featured in the Spring 2006 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings. So plan on coming to Ferrante’s (9:30 sharp) , June 29--to be transported to another time and place. Visit: for a little taste of their music.
Reservations are highly recommended as tables are limited. We look forward to see you on Friday, June 29.
