Poway OnStage Concert

Manhattan Transfer

Known for their amazing harmony and versatility, incorporating pop, jazz, R&B, rock and roll, swing, symphonic, and a cappella music, The Manhattan Transfer defined a new form of contemporary music in the early 1970s. The Grammy award-winning jazz vocalists were originated by Tim Hauser in 1969 as an underground group in New York City. They made their recording debut with their self-titled album in 1975, and expanded their following by starring in their own 1975 CBS-TV variety series. The Manhattan Transfer achieved international popularity when “Chanson D’Amour” from the 1976 Coming Out album hit number one in Europe. Defying easy genre categorizations, they became the first act to win Grammy Awards in the pop and jazz categories in one year (1981) for “Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal” for “Boy from New York City” and “Best Jazz Performance Duo or Group” for “Until I Met You (Corner Pocket). The range of their work continues to delight fans, and includes albums celebrating the music of Louis Armstrong, Swing, Brasil, Bop Doo-Wopp, and more.
