VENUE: Old Town Temecula Community Theater
Temecula Presents is thrilled to be bringing The Manhattan Transfer, the legendary vocal band whose highly successful career spans more than four decades, to the Old Town Temecula Community Theater. If one is judged by the company they keep, the group has recorded with some impressive company indeed – Tony Bennett, Bette Midler, Smokey Robinson, Laura Nyro, Phil Collins, B.B. King, Chaka Khan, James Taylor, and the original Jersey Boy, Frankie Valli. With worldwide sales in the millions, Grammy Awards by the dozen, and as veterans of sold-out world tours, The Manhattan Transfer has proven restless, adventurous, and limitless.
Owning to their superb harmonies, unparalleled vocal dexterity, and formidable on-stage chemistry, legendary jazz ensemble The Manhattan Transfer is coming to Temecula’s Stage to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. As The Manhattan Transfer mark the 40th Anniversary of their debut recording on Atlantic Records – Janis Siegel, Alan Paul, and Cheryl Bentyne will honor the late founding member, Tim Hauser, as they continue to tour with their newest member, Trist Curless. Touching on bebop, contemporary jazz, doo wop, Latin melodies, pop/rock, and much more, the quartet has pushed the envelope of what four part harmonies can do. They continue to delight fans with their wide array of high-energy renditions.
Temecula Theater’s 10th Anniversary Celebration will combine unexpected twists and turns to create a once-in-a-lifetime event!
Social Hour begins at 6pm with hors d’oeuvres and cash bar.

HONEY WHISKEY TRIO
“One of the most talented vocal harmony groups performing today.” – John Neal, Harmony Sweepstakes, Executive Producer
The Honey Whiskey Trio explores harmony in folk, bluegrass, and any melody that catches the ear. Through their powerful, yet sweet harmonies, body percussion, haunting melodies, and vitality on stage, Honey Whiskey Trio captivates and moves audiences. These story tellers in song found their roots in vocal jazz, all singing in Pacific Standard Time, CSU Long Beach’s award winning vocal jazz ensemble, though at different times. This foundation in jazz gives Honey Whiskey Trio an inherent flexibility to their sound, allowing them to change and adjust their tone to best fit the mood of each song. In 2013, after singing together for only five months, Honey Whiskey Trio won the Harmony Sweepstakes National Competition, also winning Audience Favorite at both the Regional and National sweepstakes.
