The Patina Turners

On the rooftop, Friday Nights at Sidney’s will present The Patina Turners during Art Walk on Friday, May 3 at Sidney’s Rooftop Sculpture Garden from 7 to 11 p.m. The Patina Turners are an original, instrumental “Surfabilly” band bringing a blend of rockabilly and surf guitar rock, along with each member’s unique musical influences, to create a sound and vibe to carry the classic American Rock & Roll torch into the modern era and beyond.
The Jazzy Nights Series wraps up on Friday, May 10 with a performance in the grand atrium by Glenn Crytzer Quartet at 7:30 p.m. Advance general admission tickets start at $45.
Glenn Crytzer is a New York City based band leader, arranger, composer, guitarist and vocalist who is in love with the music of the jazz age and swing era.
While completing his formal training in classical composition and cello at the Cleveland Institute of Music and the Florida State University, Glenn took up dancing the Lindy Hop as a hobby. Through the Lindy, his love of early jazz grew, but he lamented that there were so few musical groups that specialized authentic performance of his favorite kind of music. Glenn decided to put his musical training to use, taught himself guitar, banjo, and jazz arranging, and set about bringing to life the music he loved.
Now in his mid 30s, Glenn has become a staple in New York City’s jazz scene as a guitarist and bandleader. He has released 8 albums with his big band and combos and dozens of his recordings have been featured in films and TV shows seeking to evoke the sound of the golden age of radio. In 2017, his big band was named Best Group in New York in the NYC Jazz Awards.
