We loved the concert. We were in Geneva on vacation. The acoustics were not clear at all. 4 of 5 rating

I've seen Manhattan Transfer multiple times over the course of their career and they never disappoint. It was a wonderful show. This was my first time seeing an act at the Haugh at Citrus College and I found the venue to be fabulous. Parking was a breeze. Entering into the facility and finding our seats was so easy. All of the staff members I came in contact with were extremely friendly and professional. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone.

This was my 11th Manhattan Transfer concert. While they have visibly aged, as we all have, their music and showmanship has not. It was quite emotional for me as this was probably their last concert that I would be able to attend. To see and hear them in person is, and always has been, sublime. They, and their musical accompanists, held the audience in the palms of their hands, treating them as old friends, as I'm sure many of us were. They reached back into their catalog, singing some selections that I, in 10 previous concerts, had not heard. The venue was perfect, large enough for the audience but with a sense of intimacy for us. We drove 4 hours to get there and were, as ever, not disappointed. My partner, who has been to 8 of their concerts with me, stated that this was the best one.

About The Manhattan Transfer

Latest News: The Manhattan Transfer is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year with a brand-new studio album and global tour! FIFTY will be available to stream September 23 and on CD October 21, and features the GRAMMY Award-winning vocal group alongside Germany’s renowned WDR Funkhausorchester. Together, they’ve created 10 new arrangements of some of The Manhattan Transfer’s biggest hits (including “Chanson D’Amour,” “Twilight Zone / Twilight Zone,” and more), plus other fan favorites and notable cover songs.

Bio:
The Manhattan Transfer remains a cornerstone for great pop and jazz hits, a legacy that the group has cemented since their first recording 41 years ago. The legendary quartet has been awarded 10 Grammy Awards of 20 nominations and has been inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame. Trist Curless has now officially become a member of the group, joining Janis Siegel. Alan Paul, Cheryl Bentyne, all of whom are conscious of maintaining the integrity and artistry left by founding member Tim Hauser who passed away in 2014.
The Manhattan Transfer was born when Tim Hauser was paying his bills by driving a New York City cab while aspiring to form a harmony vocal quartet that could authentically embrace varied musical styles, and still create something wholly unique in the field of American popular song. Through driving a taxi, he met the next members of the legendary group — Laurel Massé and Janis Siegel. Alan Paul, who was appearing in the Broadway cast of “Grease” at the time, was recommended as the additional male voice and the four became The Manhattan Transfer on October 1, 1972. Cheryl Bentyne joined The Manhattan Transfer in 1979, replacing Laurel.
In 1974 the group began performing regularly throughout New York City at Trude Heller’s, Mercer Arts Center, Max’s Kansas City, Club 82, and other cabaret venues. By the end of the year they were the number one live attraction in New York City. They were signed to Atlantic Records and released their self-titled debut in 1975. The second single, a remake of the gospel classic “Operator,” gave the group their first national hit.
1979′s Extensions earned The Transfer another smash with “Twilight Zone/Twilight Tone.” The vocal remake of the classic “Birdland” became recognized as the group’s anthem and earned them their first two Grammy Awards. In 1981, they became the first group ever to win Grammy Awards in both Pop and Jazz categories in the same year – Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for “Boy From New York City” and Best Jazz Performance Duo or Group for “Until I Met You (Corner Pocket). The 12 Grammy nominations they received for Vocalese in 1985 made it second to Michael Jackson’s Thriller as the most nominated album in one year ever.
They are responsible for 19 singles and 29 albums over their stellar career and their music has been featured in major feature films and television shows. The group has also recorded with an impressive roster of artists including Tony Bennett, Bette Midler, Smokey Robinson, Laura Nyro, Phil Collins, B.B. King, Chaka Khan, James Taylor, and Frankie Valli.
With sold-out world tours and worldwide record sales in the millions, The Manhattan Transfer continues to bring unique and extraordinary melodic and jazz infused vocals to new and established audiences that span generations.
