Joining Hammel are pianist Steve Davidowski, bassist Zack Page and drummer Evan Martin. Hammel is a member of the prestigious Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs. His passion for singing and playing guitar began in Connecticut when he met jazz great Sal Salvador who introduced him to jazz guitar. Sal challenged Hammel that one day he would pursue a career in music. Hammel took a 20-year detour building and leading large companies. Along the way he wrote songs about his life experiences that are part of his repertoire today. He has been compared to Chet Baker and John Pizzarelli.
Hammel and his band have performed in New York City at venues such as The Metropolitan Room, Satalla, Julian’s, PM, and Kavehaz (The Gallery). He also has performed at the former CBGB’s Gallery and The Bitter End.
Tickets are $34.99 per person, which includes a four-course dinner.
