Vinny da Silva and His Expensive Friends

Thursday / December 19, 2013 / 1:00 p.m.
Cafe 939
939 Boylston Street

"Meu caro amigo..." is a Brazilian Portuguese expression that means "my dear friend," but word by word translates as "my expensive friend." Vinny da Silva's senior recital promises to surpass any possible language barriers through music. He will perform his own compositions as well as those of musicians who have influenced him, including Zappa, Herbie, Hendrix, and Ray, while always keeping one goal in mind: make it fun!

The Expensive Friends are Thadeu Lenza on drums, Jamie Song on keys, and Pedro Zappa on bass. They will be joined by very special guests, including Joey Blake (Berklee faculty) and Gustavo D'Amico on tenor sax.
