Intangible You

Mariano LaSpisa plays vibraphone, Shannon Kauble sings. Intangible You grew from a couple’s mutual passion for America’s great art form. Their music is a mix of standards, showtimes, and Latin jazz arranged for vibraphone and voice. Poet Vincent Lowry will also read a few selections from his book. Come hear this, their first public show, at this free First Thursday event.
