The Manhattan Transfer to Celebrate 45th Anniversary in 2017 at Paramount Hudson Valley
Celebrating their 45th anniversary in 2017, The Manhattan Transfer continues to set the standard as one of the world's greatest and most innovative vocal groups. Winners of ten Grammy Awards, with millions of records sold worldwide, this amazing quartet is building upon the extraordinary legacy created by founder Tim Hauser who organized the four-part harmony group on October 1, 1972 in New York City.
In 1981, The Manhattan Transfer became the first vocal group to win Grammy Awards in the pop and jazz categories in one year: Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for "Boy From New York City" (a cover of the 1964 song by The Ad Libs), and Best Jazz Performance by a Duo or Group for "Until I Met You (Corner Pocket)."
Now consisting of Janis Siegel (alto), Alan Paul (tenor), Cheryl Bentyne (soprano), and newcomer Trist Curless (bass) who replaced Hauser following his passing on October 16, 2014, the group is proud to extend Hauser's vision more than four decades later.
