David Lahm joins Steve Champagne and Mary E. Rapier for a special "Night of Wine and Jazz". With over 100 years of combined musical talent, the three are embarking on musical stylings from the Beatles to Bacharach - and everything before, during, and after. Come experience their melding at Northwest Indiana's finest winery, Shady Creek Winery February 23.
David Lahm: David Lahm is a highly regarded jazz pianist that is divided between NYC and his second home in Harbor Country. David Lahm is the son of Academy Award winning lyricist Dorothy Fields. Lahm has had a flourishing career as a jazz pianist and arranger. With over five decades as a professional pianist, he has captured audiences around the world. He and his wife Judy Kreston (m. 1990-2009) had a very successful cabaret act, and collaborated on numerous albums over their many years together. In addition to David's expansive career, he also toured and recorded with the Buddy Rich Band, and was the house pianist and accompanist at the legendary Village Gate backing the Who's Who of the greatest vocalists in New York City. Fortunately, he spends a great deal of his time between NYC and Harbor Country, and continues to make music as only David can - with style!
Mary E. Rapier: Mary E. has been singing for over three decades. She and her partner Steve Champagne were named Best Acoustic Duo in 2015 by the Kankakee Area Music Awards. For over 20 years, Mary E. has been a guest vocalist with Kankakee Municipal Band. Mary began her career singing standards, light opera, and Broadway. Since forming an acoustic duo with Steve in 2007, they have focused on a wide range of songs made popular between the 60s and 70s, and love bringing their music to the Michiana region.
Steve Champagne: Steve has dedicated his life to perfecting his knowledge of the Beatles and other favs. Some call him a walking jukebox the way he can recall lyrics, melodies, and overall style. He has been singing and playing guitar since his earliest memory. Together, Steve and Mary E. have hours of pop-rock play list along with standards.
"SaM & David," is the newest endeavor of these three music lovers, and guests will be entertained with a whole new repertoire of jazz standards, new spins on old favorites, and songs that they love to perform. Guests will enjoy a glass of Shady Creek wine, fine chocolates, small bites, and music by David, Mary E., and Steve. Additional glasses of wine will be available for purchase. Tickets are limited, so get them while you can. For direct purchase, feel free to contact Mary E. at email@example.com. Feel free to direct general questions to Mary E. at firstname.lastname@example.org. Order before January 15th and receive a complimentary wine tasting - compliments of Mary E.
