Paul Del Nero

Join the Paul Del Nero Jazz quartet, featuring Arnie Krakowsy on tenor, Jon Wheatley on guitar, Gary Johnson on drums, and Paul on bass, for an unforgettable evening of straight ahead jazz on the museum’s waterfront. They’ll perform selections from the American Songbook and the Canon of Jazz Standards, promising a swingin’ night. Paul Del Nero is not only a talented jazz bassist and bandleader, but he is also an avid sailor and proud owner of a classic Herreshoff S Boat named “Vindex”. For over 25 years, Paul has sailed and cared for this beautiful boat, which was designed by Nathanael Herreshoff in the early 20th century. Paul Del Nero Jazz’s performance promises to be a swingin’ evening of straight-ahead jazz on the museum’s waterfront, bringing together his passion for jazz and classic boats in a unique and exciting way.
