A full house greeted Jeff Barnhart and the Midiri Brothers at Bemis Hall in Lincoln MA.  We were thrilled to have the Midiri Brothers back, and they were happy to return with Steve Taddeo.

This was Jeff Barnhart’s debut here; he enjoyed the antique Steinway piano and gave it a workout on High Society.

Midiri Brothers were at their best with Jeff Barnhart singing My Gal Sal.

It’s the Talk of the Town

Caroline Griep joined them on vocals  How About You,

If I Had You:

The Midiri Brothers showed their Classical side with song taken from Antonin Dvořák with Joe on soprano sax – Songs My Mother Taught To Me.

Steve Taddeo showed Jeff his drum walk-around on Savoy.  (15 minutes)

The afternoon closed with a HOT Crazy Rhythm.

“Regulars” enjoyed listening to a fabulous afternoon of Swing and Jazz presented by Harold McAleer and The Lincoln Council on Aging, and produced by Steve Taddeo.
