Miss Myra & the Moonshiners
presented by the Bartlesville Community Concert Association
Monday, April 25, 2022 at 7:30 p.m.
Miss Myra and The Moonshiners are a formidable 5-piece swing band bringing a fresh female-driven perspective to traditional New Orleans and hot club jazz, playing a broad repertoire of classic tunes from the ‘20s and ‘30s and inspired originals. With powerful vocals, a smoking horn section, and sweet rhythm, they are guaranteed to lift spirits and fill the dance floor.
Miss Myra is a threat on every level. Her golden voice will bring you from rock bottom to ecstasy and back while her driving guitar rhythm holds the Moonshiners together. Her style of hard hitting swing guitar is reminiscent of Django Reinhardt. She also draws influence from legendary blues guitarists such as Leadbelly and Blind Boy Fuller. If you let her near a piano, you'll hear virtuosity from ragtime to Lizst. In addition to her musical talent, she is known for lighting up the dance floor with traditional American jazz dances such as lindy hop, charleston and blues.
Nathan Berry - Brings an infectious enthusiasm to the stage, singing harmonies and leading the horn section with swinging cornet melodies and New Orleans tailgate trombone. He also performs regularly with the Afro-Cuban group Malamanya.
Sam Skavnak - A virtuoso devotee of traditional jazz, "Silky" Sam rounds out the Moonshiner's horns with his ever tasty clarinet and baritone sax stylings.
Michael Carvale - Heavily influenced by traditional jazz and blues bassists, Michael has performed all over the world. He has toured with such artists as Gunhild Carling, CW Stoneking and Pokey LaFarge.
Beth Varela - Beth studied film scoring at Berklee School of Music and completes the band's swinging rhythm section. She is a music educator specializing in percussion, piano and cello.
