Nightwind: The Mike Lawrence Legacy Band

July 9, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$15 – $20

Nightwind: The Mike Lawrence Legacy Band featuring Chris Rogers, trumpet, flugelhorn; Sam Dillon, tenor sax; Clifford Carter, keyboards; Steve Johns, drums; Brian Glassman, bass; Theo Rogers, guitar and Roberta Lawrence, vocals!

The Mike Lawrence Legacy Band honors the gifted trumpeter who passed away far too young at 37 in 1983, but left behind a magnificent body of work, including Lawrence’s revered posthumous album Nightwind.

That recording featured Herbie Hancock, Bob James and Michael Brecker among others. Trumpeter Chris Rogers, who has toured and recorded extensively, leads this band, which includes keyboardist Clifford Carter and vocalist Roberta Lawrence, Mike’s widow, who both played on the Nightwind LP.


Jazz Forum, Westchester County’s only dedicated jazz club, is tucked away on a side street in downtown Tarrytown. Drawing musicians from around the world, the club strives to make music affordable and accessible. Headline jazz artists perform on Friday and Saturday nights with two sets per night at 7 and 9:30 pm. Two Sunday afternoon sets at 4 pm and 6 pm often feature Brazilian and Latin jazz. Check the club’s website for each weekend’s performer list and to purchase tickets. Many shows sell out in advance, get yours early.

The Jazz Forum offers a full menu including entrées, dinner plates, cured meats and cheese, tapenades and house-made desserts. It has a full bar and features fine Italian wines, local draft beers and specialty cocktails. The food and drink menu is available for all Friday, Saturday and Sunday shows.

Jazz Forum also produces a popular series of outdoor summer concerts at five Hudson River locations: Lyndhurst mansion, Tarrytown’s Pierson Park, Sleepy Hollow’s Horan’s Landing Park, Dobbs Ferry Waterfront Park, and Henry Gourdine Park in Ossining.
