440 Gallery presents: My New York?photographs by Tom Bovo (www.tombovo.com) For his debut solo exhibition at 440 Gallery, Bovo presents a selection of recent photographs about his favorite, and most accommodating subject, New York City. The exhibit is open through February 20th, 2011. The Closing reception: February 20 from 4 to 6 PM with Mike McGarril and the Sound Waves Trio. The Sound Waves Trio has found a home where few musical groups have ever traveled: the restless waters of the New York City harbor. As the house jazz band for Classic Harbor Line's motor yacht Manhattan, this group is equally adept at performing on land or at sea. Led by saxophonist Mike McGarril, the band is loosely composed of recent graduates from Greenwich Village's The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. Their fresh approach to both jazz and popular music reflects the fun, creative personalities of the group. The Sound Waves Trio began performing evening jazz cruises weekly aboard the yacht Manhattan in the summer of 2009, and has since expanded it scope to include private parties and other events. Some of these include Uma Thurman's benefit for the Room to Grow charity with special guest Ken Burns (Sept '10) and a press event for Classic Harbor Line's sushi and sake sail with Iron Chef Masahuri Morimoto (May '10).
