Amy Lavere and Will Sexton and Chef... will be the culinary and musical artists on Wednesday, September 5th from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. Brooklyn Brewery will be the official sponsor of this event with a choice of a beer pairing. Doors open at 5:30. The evening will combine the finest that the Finger Lakes has to offer with music presented in an intimate setting with a casual meal of four courses. The bar will be open for beverage purchase featuring craft beers, local Finger Lakes wines, cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages. Reservations are $40 per guest, advance ticket sales required.
4 for 40 features two sets of music and a light dinner featuring appetizer, salad, entree, and dessert courses. Following the opening set of music, the artists will join the guests for dinner, and conclude with a second set of music with dessert.
We are excited to welcome back Amy Lavere and Will Sexton from Memphis, Tennessee. A burgeoning star, Amy LaVere is becoming renowned worldwide for her songwriting, bass playing, and vocals. She sings with a sweet, haunting voice that can turn on a dime from innocent to lusty (“Norah Jones with an added Cyndi Lauper element” — Mojo Magazine; “Spookiness suits her” — New York Times). Whether playing as a duo with her husband Will Sexton or with retro-country sensation Motel Mirrors, she’s an inventive, thoughtful singer-songwriter who has crowds throughout the US and Europe smitten. Will is a respected artist, songwriter and producer with a list of acclaimed solo albums to his name. Keeping his old ties deep in the heart of Texas, Will now calls Memphis home with his wife, singer-songwriter Amy LaVere. Will and Amy have been touring and playing together for a couple of years and have a full schedule playing in the U.S. and Europe in the coming months. Their new CD, Hallelujah, I’m A Dreamer is spare and tight, showcasing Will and Amy’s fine playing styles and beautiful harmonies.
This installment of the 4 for 40 series is sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery.
