THE MANHATTAN TRANSFER & TAKE 6 PRESENT “THE SUMMIT”

The Summit-1

Combining forces for the first time, The Manhattan Transfer and Take 6 ~ two of the most acclaimed, award-winning vocal groups in pop music ~ create an unforgettable concert event that will thrill audiences of all ages.

Between them, the two groups boast a remarkable 20 Grammy Awards, and a range of styles that covers nearly every genre of popular music; from jazz to swing, from gospel to R&B. As The Manhattan Transfer mark the 40th Anniversary of their debut recording on Atlantic Records, original members Janis Siegal, Alan Paul, and Cheryl Bentyne will honor founding member, Tim Hauser, as they continue to tour with their newest member, Trist Curless. TMT joins Take 6 as they share their crystal clear harmony, innovative arrangements and funky grooves, demonstrating why this sextet is recognized as the pre-eminent A cappella group in the world. No ordinary double bill, this is a show combining unexpected twists and turns to create a once-in-a-lifetime event!

Remembering Tim Hauser

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of Tim Hauser’s passing with you all… As many of you know, Tim was the visionary behind The Manhattan Transfer. We spent more than 40 years together singing and making music, traveling the world, and sharing so many special moments throughout our lives… It’s incomprehensible to think of this world without him.
We join his loving wife, Barb, his beautiful children, his family, and the rest of the world in mourning the loss of our dear friend and partner in song.
Love,
Janis, Cheryl and Alan

For those of you with tickets to our UPCOMING SHOWS, we will continue to tour as scheduled and continue to share Tim’s incredible musical legacy…

JANIS SIEGEL ~ PHILLIPINES & AUSTRALIA TOUR

A Note from Janis Siegel:
Dear Friends on the Other Side of the World,
I’ll be taking some time off from my much beloved harmony singing with TMT and will be traveling to the Phillipines and Australia in the coming weeks for some solo shows. Along wth my musical merry men, John di Martino and Boris Kozlov, I will be performing (both old favorites and new stuff!), making new friends and exploring these beautiful countries… I’ll also be doing some recording with flautist, Jane Rutter in Sydney. And I’d love to see YOU there!
Love,
Janis
