Dennis Rowland Benefit Concert

HEAR IT

Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist and Valley resident Dennis Rowland is known for his rich voice and flashy stage persona. But after suffering a stroke in December 2012, he’s been rehabilitating, trying to regain his ability to fully express himself vocally and return to the stage. On November 6, Rowland’s colleagues will perform a benefit concert on his behalf at Herberger Theater Center. The concert will feature Grammy-nominated vocalist Monica Mancini, drummer and six-time Grammy recipient and Latin Grammy “Producer of the Year” Gregg Field, as well as saxophonist Tom Scott and legendary jazz pianist Shelly Berg. Rowland is scheduled to briefly appear on stage. Ticket prices – and additional acts – to be announced. 222 E. Monroe St., Phoenix, herbergertheater.org.
