MAHWAH, N.J. –The Berrie Center for the Arts at Ramapo College of New Jersey welcomes The Casey Abrams Trio on Saturday, December 4 at 8 p.m. Casey Abrams burst onto the national scene with his head-turning stint on Season 10 of American Idol. With his stand-up bass and smooth vocals, Casey has carved out his unique jazz-funk sound. His brand-new album, Casey Keysey was released in October. For more information or tickets, go to www.ramapo.edu/berriecenter.
Following the Season 10 American Idol Tour, Casey recorded a now-classic rendition of Baby, It’s Cold Outside with best Idol buddy and musical soul- mate, Haley Reinhart, and then was signed to Concord Records, where Randy Jackson produced his first album, Casey Abrams, voted the #1 Billboard Heat Seekers Album. Since then, he has written, arranged, performed, and at times produced, four other albums.
In 2015, Casey joined Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox, which re-invents current pop hits into 1920’s-1950s jazz/blues genres, as one of its leading performers and emcees. For this concert, Abrams will be joined by fellow Postmodern Jukebox musicians Dave Tedeschi on drums and Jesse Elder on piano for what promises to be a fun, uplifting evening of great music.
