An Evening with Branford Marsalis
Three-time GRAMMY Award-winning saxophonist and New Orleans native Branford Marsalis has jazz running through his veins. The sons of a jazz singer and music professor, Marsalis and his brothers have risen to the upper echelons of modern jazz due to their virtuosic playing and technique. In an astounding four decade career, the living legend has performed and recorded with the likes of Miles Davis, Art Blakey, and Herbie Hancock. A musical chameleon, Marsalis is unafraid to defy and blend genres, making him a formidable performer in not only jazz, but classical and mainstream music. Revered for his glowing tone, subtle yet lush phrasing and witty phrasing, the muso and his band don’t just play a song, but regularly raise the roof with cathartic flights of intense, visceral playing. Long may the King of the Reed reign!

Sunset Presents: Styx
The six men comprising Styx have committed to rocking the Paradise together with audiences far and wide by entering their second decade of averaging over 100 shows a year, and each one of them is committed to making the next show better than the last. Styx draws from over four decades of barnburning chart hits, joyous singalongs, and hard-driving deep cuts. Like a symphony that builds to a satisfying crescendo, a Styx set covers a wide range of stylistic cornerstones. From the progressively sweeping splendor that is “The Grand Illusion” to the hunker-down fortitude of all that is the “Blue Collar Man,” from the majestic spiritual love for a special “Lady” to the seething indictment of preening, primping pageantry for pageantry’s sake of “Miss America,” from an individual yearning for true connection as a “Man in the Wilderness” to a soul-deep quest to achieve what’s at the heart of one’s personal vision in “Crystal Ball,” from the regal reach-for-the-stars bravado of “Come Sail Away” to the grainy all-in gallop of that rugged “Renegade” who had it made, the band draws on an unlimited cache of ways to immerse one’s mind and body in their signature sound.
Kick the Sugar Habit!
The average American consumes upwards of 150 pounds of sugar per year. Added sugar hides in unsuspecting places such as sauces, soups, condiments and even sausages and hot dogs. Over consuming added sugar, and carbohydrates in general, can put a strain on the body and lead to inflammation and elevated blood sugar, both of which have been shown to contribute to chronic disease. There are easy ways to reduce your sugar intake–education is the first step!
