Adding the youth and talent of vocalist Cerise and Bob’s grandson, drummer Kareem Sanjaghi, the band performs many genres including jazz, swing, and Latin, specializing in songs from the Great American Songbook. Cerise, one of New England’s rising stars, is quickly making a name for herself in the music scene here. NEjazz.com says “Cerise is a charming entertainer and immediately captured the audience singing and lithely moving up and down the aisle between the tables. She is an electrifying experience! Remember that name.” 24-year-old Kareem Sanjaghi played his first gig at age 13 with his grandfather Bob Hayes and famed trumpeter Lou Colombo, with whom he performed with for 10 years. He has performed with reed player Dick Johnson, pianists Eddie Higgins and Rossano Sportiello, Marshall Wood, and Gray Sargent.
