His Postmodern Jukebox project, begun on YouTube in 2011, infuses notable popular songs with jazz, swing and ragtime elements, or, as a Boston Globe writer put it "takes the pop hits of the text-and-Snapchat age and recasts them as meticulously arranged period pieces, from ragtime to doo-wop."

Andrew Bird
With Me'Shell Ndegeocello
Folk, Indie, Pop, Rock
Andrew Bird picked up his first violin at the age of four and spent years learning classical music completely by ear. As a teen he became interested in jazz, country, blues and gypsy music, synthesizing them all into his own style of pop music. Since beginning his recording career in 1997, the now Chicago-based film score composer and multi-instrumentalist has gone on to record music with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and perform in Carnegie Hall. His latest release, 'Break It Yourself,' which was produced by Bird, has garnered high praise, including this from 'The Guardian': "The perfect album: tender without being sentimental, experimental yet accessible, utterly unique to its maker."

David Sedaris

Solo Performance, Signing/Readings, Comedy
Tweaking the familiar until it warps; David Sedaris mines poignant comedy from his peculiar childhood in North Carolina, his bizarre career path, and his move with his lover to France. David Sedaris' wickedly witty observations of the ordinary-bizarre is always sure to deliver insights and laughs. One of six children in a second-generation Greek family, he grew up in Raleigh, NC. In 1977, he dropped out of Kent State University to hitchhike around the country. Aside from working as an elf, Sedaris has worked a number of charmingly quirky jobs such as a house painter, an apple picker, an aide in a mental hospital, a creative writing teacher at the Art Institute of Chicago, and an apartment cleaner. Sedaris made his comic debut recounting his strange-but-true experiences of being a Macy's elf, reading his "Santaland Diaries" on National Public Radio's Morning Edition in 1992. His sardonic humor and incisive social critique have made him one of NPR's most popular and humorous commentators. In 2001, he was named Humorist of the Year by Time magazine and received the Thurber Prize for American Humor. The author of "Barrel Fever" and "Holiday on Ice," as well as bestselling memoirs "Naked," "Me Talk Pretty One Day," "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim," "When You Are Engulfed in Flames" and most recently, "Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls," his next book, "Theft by Finding," due out in the summer of 2017, will be a collection of his diaries.
