An Evening with Curtis Stigers

Monday, July 27


When you don't see a Curtis Stigers show on the calendar for a while, it's probably not because he's laying around binge-watching Netflix. The soulful jazz singer performs in the opening sequence of Ted 2 (director Seth MacFarlane narrated it for The New York Times) and he recently performed with the BBC Big Band in Scotland for Frank Sinatra's 100th birthday.

In a July 20 newsletter, Stigers wrote he is ready to be back in Idaho, and he'll celebrate his homecoming on the Egyptian Theatre stage with Boise guitarist "Shaky" Dave Manion and New York-based pals pianist Matthew Fries, bassist Cliff Schmitt, drummer paul Wells and trumpeter John "Scrapper" Sneider. After that, he'll return in December for his Xtreme Holiday Xtravaganza, staying plenty busy until then.
