Add to Calendar 10-07-2013 10-07-2013 15 Vince Giordano & the Nighthawks -Picnic Pops Concert Bring a lawn chair or blanket and a couple of friends, and the Gardens will provide the soundtrack for an enjoyable evening under the stars. Arrive early to picnic and stroll the gardens. In 30 years as a bandleader, Vince Giordano has become the authority on recreating the sounds of 1920s and '30s jazz and popular music. "I just love the energy of the early jazz," says Giordano. "I wanted to recapture some of that." Early appearances with Leon Redbone and on the Prairie Home Companion and lending his talents to Francis Ford Coppola's film The Cotton Club, led to working with Dick Hyman's Orchestra in half a dozen Woody Allen soundtracks then as a bass player in Sean Penn?s band in Woody's Sweet and Lowdown. He and the Nighthawks were featured in Gus Van Sant's film Finding Forrester, in Martin Scorsese's The Aviator, Robert DeNiro's film, The Good Shepherd, Tamara Jenkin's The Savages and recently Sam Mendes' film: Revolutionary Road, and Away We Go; and Michael Mann's film Public Enemies; plus HBO's Boardwalk Empire. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=139905 Old Westbury Gardens true DD/MM/YYYY
