The Grammy Award-winning producer and vocalist’s take on classic pop standards reconnect audiences with the sounds of the past. All nine of his American Standards albums have achieved top 5 status on Billboard’s Jazz charts. The concerts will be reminiscent of the Rally by the River events at Promenade Park in the 1980s and early 1990s, but larger in the scope of entertainment. The stage will be near the Maumee River; the performers also will be seen on a video wall on the side of the new parking garage. Each event will feature food trucks and an area serving beer and wine.
