A 23 year-old drummer, bandleader, composer and arranger, Evan Sherman has played all over the world with the likes of James Moody, Branford Marsalis, Wynton Marsalis, Ron Carter, Roy Hargrove, and Jon Batiste. He continues to tour with pianist Cyrus Chestnut, the Jimmy Heath Big Band, and the Dizzy Gillespie All-Stars.

In 2014, Evan formed the Evan Sherman Entourage and 16-piece Big Band, which consists of up-and-coming creatives alongside a rotating cast of incredible veterans and guests. In addition to its residency at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola's late night dance parties, frequent appearances at the legendary Rainbow Room in New York's Rockefeller Center, and the Bowery Electric, the Entourage's upcoming performances for the summer and fall of 2016 include Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night Swing, Caramoor Jazz Festival (where they premiered an original piece of jazz theater, "A Story of Patience"), The Appel Room, and Ginny's Supper Club.

A native of New Jersey, Evan graduated from the Manhattan School of Music in 2015 and is based in New York City.

This performance at Ginny's Supper Club will feature legends Kuumba Frank Lacy, Ben Wolfe, as well the most exciting talents of today such as Bruce Harris, Coleman Hughes, Julian Lee and many more!
