TAKE3 Trio Brings Its Genre-Defying Show

at the Bay Club.

It’s not likely you will ever see a concert in which the band plays music by such strange bedfellows as Bach, The Beach Boys, Beethoven, The Beatles, Bizet, and Bieber… unless you come see and hear TAKE3.

No genre seems to be off the table for this three-member band that was founded by Lindsey Deutsch, who toured the world with another genre-defying performer – Yanni – as his featured violin soloist. While Yanni is known most for his new-age fusion-jazz, classical, soft rock, and world music, TAKE3 is entirely different, bouncing back and forth from rock to pop, jazz, classical, country, and everything in between.

TAKE3 features Deutsch, cellist Mikala Schmitz and pianist Jason Stoll, although they often perform with dancers, a full orchestra or a small backup band, as well as the trio only. As Forrest Gump might have said, TAKE3 is like a box of chocolates … you never know what you’re going to get.

Their interactive lighting shows and comedic stories of their journey, from playing scales in conservatory practice rooms to pop music in packed stadiums, come together in unforgettable experiences that have fired up concertgoers all over the nation.

Tickets are available online at portludlowperformingarts.com for $35 each.

The group is in the midst of a seven-month tour that will take them to every corner of the country, from the Sheen Center for Thought & Culture in New York to the Performing Arts Center of Wisconsin Rapids … and the Port Ludlow Bay Club.

In addition to extensive touring, the group has earned accolades for its outreach programs for children of all ages, delivering a message of hope, inspiration, and the importance of following dreams with vigorous tenacity.

Known for their infectious and down-to-earth onstage personalities, this threesome leaves their indelible mark on captivated crowds around the country. A Nevada music reviewer wrote, “This group gave us a tremendous night of undisputed talent from some of the most passionate musicians around.”

The trio keeps a busy tour schedule, performing over 60 performances around the globe each season, including recent appearances at Herb Alpert’s Vibrato Grill, the OK Mozart Festival, and a collaboration with the Victoria Symphony.

Deutsch can be heard throughout Netflix’s popular show, The Witcher, and the Hulu series All About Pam. Her performances on these Sony soundtracks reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts and received millions of streams worldwide.

The Port Ludlow concert is sponsored by Terri Ross in memory of Lanny, and Peggy Ponto in memory of Roger.

A new art show will be displayed on the Bay Club walls, which attendees can enjoy before, during and after the show. For more information on art exhibits at the Bay Club, email Alan Ahtow at info@portludlowart.org
