Grand Hotel’s Labor Day Jazz Weekend – September 1 – 4, 2017

Grand Hotel's Labor Day Jazz Weekend

Experience Grand Hotel during the finest musical weekend of the year. Escape to America’s Summer Place for the Labor Day Weekend and immerse yourself in the melody of beautiful Jazz music played by some of the country’s top performers. This year presents our strongest performer line-up and we hope you will join us.

Presenting Jason Marsalis Friday evening for the opening performance in the Theatre!

We are proud to announce Jason Marsalis will be opening the weekend Friday evening in the Theatre. The youngest child of Ellis and Dolores Marsalis, Jason learned alongside his brothers Branford, Wynton, and Delfeayo. Together, the four brothers and their patriarch Ellis, comprise New Orleans venerable first family of jazz. All of his brothers and father have previously performed at Grand Hotel so we are excited to present Jason to our guests and continue the jazz beat soul tradition of the Marsalis family.
Playing violin by age 5, and on his second drum kit by 6, at age 7 he was sitting in with his father’s Jazz group. Throughout his high school years he continued to hone his skills by playing gigs with his father and brothers, as well as ultimately studying orchestral percussion techniques and Classical composition. A passionate percussionist, Marsalis found himself playing the vibes in 2000, leading his own band, and then in 2005 made a recording of George Gershwin’s “Concerto in F” with the Marcus Roberts Trio and the Saito Kinen Orchestra, a project that involved fusing jazz and classical music. In 2012 Marsalis was involved in yet another genre-breaking collaboration as the Marcus Roberts Trio released an album with banjoist Bela Fleck. The combination of jazz and bluegrass was entitled “Across the Imaginary Divide” and the unit toured successfully.

Saturday performances by Mr. B, Dianne Reeves, and John Pizarelli, Jr.

Mr. B

Michigan native Mr. B (Mark Lincoln Braun) takes the stage Saturday afternoon in the Grand Hotel Tea Garden to perform on piano his own style of boogie-woogie blues. Mr. B has entertained audiences coast-to-coast in the States as well as all over Europe, Canada, and Mexico. Mr. B’s style shows the influence of such keyboard artists as Blind John Davis, Boogie Woogie Red, and Little Brother Montgomery. There aren’t many pianists devoted to playing boogie and blues these days, and fortunately for us Mr. Bʼs passion for showcasing it keeps this essential form of American music right in front of us. Jazz New International said, “The future of blues piano is in good hands with Mr. B.”

Dianne Reeves

Following Mr. B’s performance Saturday afternoon we welcome Dianne Reeves who performed on the stage at Grand Hotel in 2013. Dianne Reeves is the pre-eminent jazz vocalist in the world. As a result of her virtuosity, improvisational prowess, and unique jazz & R&B style, Reeves received the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Performance for three consecutive recordings—a Grammy first in any vocal category. Most recently the winner of the 2015 Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album, “Beautiful Life” showcases Dianne’s sublime gifts in what is a melding of R&B, Latin and pop elements within the framework of 21st Century jazz. “At its essence,” says Reeves, “Life is beautiful, and I wanted to celebrate that which is too often overlooked.” Adored by audiences and critics alike, Dianne Reeves is a natural wonder not to be missed. We are looking forward to her performance Saturday afternoon.

Saturday evening sit back and relax with guest favorite, John Pizarelli, Jr. in the Theatre.

John Pizarelli, Jr.

Most recently, John performed during the hotel’s 2014 Labor Day Weekend Jazz Festival and, previous to that, played a special set during the hotel’s 125th Anniversary Celebration in 2012. An American Jazz guitarist, Pizzarelli is also a vocalist, songwriter, bandleader, and radio host. His musical influences span from Nat “King” Cole to Lennon & McCartney, to name just a few. John Pizzarelli has a cool jazz style with brilliant guitar playing and singing. His latest album, “Double Exposure”, is a collection of tunes by some great pop songwriters, with traditional pop arrangements. With over twenty of his own albums under his belt, Pizzarelli has also recordings with his father Bucky Pizzarelli, Sir Paul McCartney, James Taylor, Rosemary Clooney, and his wife, Jessica Molaskey, among many others. John will perform Saturday evening in the Grand Hotel Theatre.

Sunday performance by Joey Alexander

Joey Alexander

At just 13 years old, Joey Alexander is known as a child prodigy. Born on the island of Bali, pianist Joey Alexander started learning about jazz at age 6 from his dad. He began teaching himself to play piano using a mini electronic keyboard his dad gave him. Joey’s dad nurtured his gift of swing and improvisation by taking him to jam sessions with veteran musicians in Bali and Jakarta. An invitation from Wynton Marsalis led to his US debut appearance at Lincoln Center’s Rose Hall in 2014 where he amazed the audience with his musicality. In 2015, he debuted the album “My Favorite Things” which garnered two Grammy nominations, for Best Jazz Instrumental Album and Best Improvised Solo, making him the youngest Jazz artist ever nominated for a Grammy. Joey has been featured by The Today Show, 60 Minutes, CNN, and The New York Times. Joey develops fresh takes on well-known tunes, combining them seamlessly with his own original compositions in a way which invites in both new and seasoned listeners, and reflecting the true emotional heart and soul of his musical personality. Joey Alexander will perform Sunday afternoon in the Grand Hotel Tea Garden.

All Weekend with Paul Keller

Every evening in the Cupola Bar you can enjoy the bass sounds of Paul Keller. Originally from Grand Rapids, MI, Paul studied classical music at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Today Paul is a string bassist from Metro Detroit. He has earned the nickname “The House Bass Player For The State Of Michigan” as each year he logs many miles traveling across the state to perform at various music venues. Mr. Keller is an integral part of Labor Day Jazz Weekend every year and we are excited to welcome him back.

Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail
10781 East Cherry Bend Road, Studio 1
Traverse City, MI  49684 Map

Leelanau Peninsula has become well-known for its Riesling and other cool-climate white varietals and blends. What is often overlooked, however, are the high-quality red wines being grown in the region.

To help get beneath the surface, the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail hosts a monthlong event each October that encourages wine lovers to explore and discover great red wines of Leelanau Peninsula. The Hunt for the Reds of October takes place weekdays (Monday through Friday) throughout the entire month.

Your $10 ticket gets you a stemmed commemorative glass and a pour at all 23 participating wineries offering diverse red wines: big and bold Cabernet Francs and Merlots, aromatic and spicy Pinot Noirs and much more. Additionally, $5 of every ticket benefits the American Red Cross of Northern Michigan. Great wine for a great cause!

Leelanau Harvest Tour – September 16, 2017

LHTPedal through Scenic Leelanau County

Saturday, September 16, 2017

Tour Overview

The Leelanau Harvest Tour is a great biking adventure for both families and single riders as the fall colors begin to show and temperatures begin to cool. Leaving from the Suttons Bay High School, routes of approximately 20, 40, 65, and 100 miles wind throughout beautiful Leelanau County on excellent paved roads passing by farms, orchards, vineyards, dunes, and through quaint villages. So come, ride, relax, and enjoy all that this beautiful peninsula has to offer.

Four Beautiful Routes

After nine miles on the Leelanau Trail, the 20 mile route follows the east side of South Lake Leelanau then returns to the Trail to finish in Suttons Bay. Being mostly flat this is an ideal route for younger riders.

The 40 mile route begins the same as the short route then continues north along the east side of both North and South Lake Leelanau and passes though the village of Lake Leelanau before returning to Suttons Bay via the Leelanau Trail from Dumas Rd.

After leaving the Leelanau Trail 10.5 miles south of Suttons Bay, the 65 mile route heads west through Maple City, north around Little Traverse Lake, through Lake Leelanau, up the east side of North Lake Leelanau and then over Herman Hill to the finish.

The 100 mile route extends the 65 mile route north to the Grand Traverse Lighthouse at the tip of the Leelanau Peninsula and the village of Northport with more hills and scenic views.

Folks!!! Today is the last day to nominate candidates for Jim Mudgett's award. This award is traditionally presented to xc skiers, because skiing is obviously important to our area. That being said, mountain biking has become important to NW Michigan as well. Some folks feel Tom White is deserving of the Award due to decades of volunteer work he has devoted (and continues to devote) to our trail system. Should u like to see him receive this recognition, please contact TART ASAP and give them your vote, or nominate whomever u feel is a suitable candidate. Tomorrow is the deadline!
