Ben Rau has been playing drums since he was in the third grade and his  sticks have taken him far. He earned degrees in Music Education and, happily,  this love of music led to a 34 year career as a music educator. Along the way, he also developed a career in performance working with a variety of jazz and blues ensembles, rock groups and big bands. Ben’s presence helps create a great music environment for performers and audience. 

Bassist Pete Toigo is a highly sought after player working with jazz duos and ensembles in the Capital District, Hudson Valley, and western Massachusetts. His career as an upright bass player has led to the most wonderful musical associations and partnerships on stage and in recordings. A premier player, he is a powerful yet gentle presence in ensemble work. Just listen!

Wayne Hawkins is a versatile pianist and fabulous accompanist. He is a master of many styles of music as a player, arranger, and composer. Hailing from the Midwest, Wayne brought his Kansas City roots east and continues to explore music through composition, performance, writing for Hal Leonard Publishing, teaching at Skidmore College and as a liturgical music minister. Wayne cherishes every music performance for the opportunity to “play well with others!”

Come join us for a fun night of jazz, with delicious savory and sweet lite fare, as we kick off our 120th year in operation while you enjoy our historic and beautiful grounds.
