Event Details

Four-time World Series champion and legendary New York Yankees centerfielder Bernie Williams joins some all-stars of a different kind: his talented band, The Bernie Williams Collective. Featuring Williams on guitar, the band includes music director Don Harris on trumpet, Joel Rosenblatt on drums, Dave Anderson on bass, Chris Clark on piano/keyboards and Erik Piza on percussion. While best known as a 5-time All Star for the Yankees, Williams has been playing and studying music since his childhood, reaching #3 on Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz charts with his tropical-tinged debut album The Journey Within. Since then he’s worked with Bruce Springsteen, Jon Secada, Dave Koz and more on albums and performances and as a crusader for arts education through the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation’s SupportMusic Coalition and the Turnaround Arts program, working locally with students in Bridgeport public schools. IN 2016, Williams received his bachelor of music degree in Jazz Performance from the Manhattan School of Music and he was awarded an honorary degree from the State University of New York, recognizing his achievements as both a Yankee and a top-flight musician.
