Chris Vitas will perform with his friends to honor Jean-Luc Ponty.

In case you missed it last time, Chris Vitas and friends once again perform a tribute to the great Jazz Fusion violinist Jean-Luc Ponty, said to be “The first jazz violinist to be as exciting as a saxophonist.” The performance is from 7 to 10:30 p.m., Friday, April 24 at Croce’s Park West, located at 2760 Fifth Avenue.

Ponty has performed widely since the early sixties with such notable artists as Frank Zappa, Stephane Grappelli, Al Di Meola, and many more. Along with Chris Vitas on electric violin, there’s Fred Benedetti on guitar, Richard James on keyboards, Jeff Pekarek on bass, and Matt Smith on drums—presenting some of Ponty’s most notable tunes, and more of them.

This is a dinner show and reservations are recommended. Cost is $10; all ages are welcome.

For information, call (619) 233-4355 or visit www.croces.com.
