Tom Manuel's Gospel Road Band

Gospel Road Band at All Souls Church, 61 Main St, Stony Brook, NY

The July 6th Saturdays at Six Concert will feature Tom Manuel and his new ensemble Gospel Road. The group brings together a wonderful mix of some of the most impressive performers from the scenes of jazz, bluegrass, country, gospel and western traditions and is very much so inspired by Manuel's childhood growing up in the Pentecostal church. Featured prominently in the band are musicians and local favorites Taylor Ackley, Steve Salerno, Buddy Merriam, Keenan Zach, Matt Godfrey, Darrell Smith, and Laura Landor. Gospel Road presents a wonderfully nostalgic mix of instrumentals adorned with a classic presentation of vocal harmonies with just a touch of storytelling and humor.  Tom is President & Founder of The Jazz Loft, Artist in Residence, Stony Brook University, and Director of the Stony Brook University Young Artists Jazz Program.
