Wine & Song: Joe Iadanza and Mayberry w/ guest host Bliss Bowen
Born of Italian immigrants and union activists, New York native Joe Iadanza understands the passionate struggle of the American dream. Joe’s music is rooted in classic folk: honest and raw. His 2008 debut cd, Traveling Salesman was heralded by folk radio, as was his follow up CD, All In Good Time, in 2010. Max Schwartz and Abbi Berry met as members of the Grammy Camp — a program made up of 30 high school students chosen by the Grammy Foundation to perform a week’s worth of gigs in Los Angeles, including the official Grammy Celebration at the LA Convention Center. They met again as featured members of the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra, an all-star group put together by the Monterey Jazz Festival where they performed around Monterey County and a two-week tour in Japan. As Mayberry, they draw influence from Max’s background in bluegrass, Abbi’s love for pop, and their formal education in jazz.
