LAURA ROTH:
Laura Roth is a “show-stopper” (New York Post): She has performed one-woman shows before audiences of thousands at major casino hotels, resorts and theaters up and down the east coast, and also makes her home in the Capital District.And boy did we get lucky when Hui Cox landed in town.

HUI COX:
Teaching guitar at Bennington College and living in the Capital District, Hui is a celebrated producer, composer, Grammy nominee, and recipient of two grants for composition from the National Endowment for the Arts, who has toured the world and recorded with Cab Calloway, Odetta, Liza Minnelli, Melba Moore, Wilson Pickett, Stanley Turrentine, Richie Havens, The Temptations, The Four Tops, and many more of the greatest names in show business. It’s no surprise that he met and teamed up with unbeatable singer Laura Roth. Laura has performed one-woman shows before audiences of thousands at major casino hotels, resorts and theaters up and down the east coast and also makes her home in the Capital District.

Through this partnership they have come home to their deepest musical love: jazz. They perform exciting and superbly confident renditions of Ella Fitzgerald, Cole Porter, Chaka Kahn, Chick Correa, Sting, Gershwin, and others. Laura will deliver the vocals and Hui will back her with electric, acoustic, classical, MIDIed 7-string guitar, mandolin, and electric bass, from his gorgeous collection of stringed instruments.

Mike Clark has a discography of seventy albums since 1974. He
first gained world-wide recognition as a jazz and funk drummer
while playing with the legendary Herbie Hancock. It is said his
work with Hancock garnered him an international cult following
and has influenced generations of drummers. He has performed
with dozens of the greats of jazz and funk, such as Tony Bennett,
Bobby McFarren, Nat Adderly, Christian McBride, and Chet Baker.

ESSIET OKON ESSIET:
Essiet Okon Essiet is regarded by many as Manhattan’s premiere
bassist, bringing a unique sound of mixed styles and cultures.

Ibrahim, he joined Art Blakely and the Jazz Messengers and has
since performed and recorded with James Moody, Freddie
Hubbard, Kenny Burrell, Abby Lincoln, Dee Dee Bridgewater,
