The SMRT Quartet in the Templeton Lounge
The SMRT Quartet provides an environment that is family-friendly, but also perfect for a group of adults wanting to grab a cocktail and spend time with friends. Their performances allow you to dance if you feel like dancing, sit and listen if you enjoy doing that, or spend private time at a table with some friends while having some nice background music. The group typically performs tunes from the Great American Songbook (popular swing standards such as "All of Me," "How High the Moon," and "Satin Doll.") For jazz enthusiasts, they sprinkle their performances with a few lesser-known jazz tunes, and for fun they typically includes some contemporary music in their sets including classic R&B songs from Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, and Roberta Flack. The group is composed of seasoned musicians who are accustomed to "playing the crowd." Guests will notice the experience these musicians bring to The Otesaga. They have an impressive list of accomplishments, having performed with many well-known artists. Group members are Joe Siracusa (guitar), Robert Roman (piano), Angust Mackie (bass), and Joe Tokarowski (drums). Jon them tonight in the Templeton Lounge from 8:30 pm to 11:30 pm.
