Sunday Sessions “at the Bell” featuring RIO BOSSA

March 10 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Always a variety of music in the intimate relaxed venue of the Bell Tower. We love showcasing emerging artists from the area and nationally

Rio Bossa performs traditional Latin, jazz, popular and original music in a unique and sensuous style, captivating audiences and weaving soulful melodies and savory Latin rhythms. Rio Bossa’s catalog is inspired by diverse Latin traditional, folk and popular music including bossanova, samba, baiao, bolero, choro, and others.

The quartet collectively contribute more than a century of musical expression and experience. Guitarist Jorge Torres brings deep ethnomusicological expertise and arranging abilities, and specializes in a distinctive fingerpicked nylon guitar style. Vocalist Alyssa Lou Allen is a stunning and mesmerizing performer, pulling from her varied indie/soul/R&B and musical theater experience, as well as performing in several different languages. Bassist Steve Foreman holds down the bottom, and the top, on 6-string bass as well as penning several original songs for Rio Bossa. With a musical career spanning many genres, drummer/percussionist Bill Weisbach propels deep, dynamic grooves with flair and color from a sui generis hybrid cocktail kit.

Rio Bossa can be seen and heard in lounge, festival, and concert settings throughout the Lehigh Valley and beyond. The quartet has been featured on WFMZ-TV and public radio WDIY.
