July 19 – Goza Latin Jazz Band
Goza (Spanish for “joy”) performs classic and modern songs and dances from Latin America, Brazil and Spain with guitar, horns, violin, percussion and beautiful, romantic vocals. Their variety of styles includes cha-cha, samba, flamenco and tango, and will have you dancing in no time!

July 26 – Sasha Dobson
This singer/songwriter is a rising star who has toured with some of the music world’s greatest talents, including Willie Nelson, Norah Jones and Neil Young. Her debut album, Modern Romance, is a fusion of Brazilian Groove, pop, jazz and selections from the Great American Songbook. Sasha comes back to New Haven due to popular demand following her acclaimed performance at NMS’s Le Jazz event last March. Learn more about Sasha Dobson here.

August 2 – Model Decoy
Model Decoy is an art-rock group, and New Haven favorite, that plays original songs ranging from upbeat and catchy, to slow and sublime. This imaginative duo Doron Monk Flake and Ari Sadowitz, and their band, certainly don’t stick to the same old topics when it comes to song-writing - their lyrical influences are drawn from literature, graphic novels, sci-fi shows and classic films. Learn more about Model Decoy here.

 August 9 – Lonnie Plaxico
Don’t miss this renowned Jazz bassist and composer who has performed with notables including Alice Coltrane, Junior Cook and Dizzy Gillespie, not to mention his Grammy award-winning collaborations with Art Blakey and Cassandra Wilson. This performance will feature Plaxico and NMS faculty members performing classic jazz as well as his original compositions.
