About the Show

Join four-time World Series Champion and Latin Grammy Nominated guitarist and composer Bernie Williams, and his All-Star Band for an evening of music featuring fusions of jazz, rock, and the tropical rhythms of Williams’ Latin heritage. Growing up in Puerto Rico, Bernie Williams discovered his love for baseball and music at roughly the same time. At the age of eight he fell in love with the sounds of a flamenco guitar his merchant-marine father brought home from Spain, and also felt the same exhilaration when he first picked up a baseball bat. In his 16-year career patrolling centerfield for the New York Yankees, his passion for music never waned, and the sound of his guitar would often be heard emanating from the clubhouse or during team flights.

Bernie Williams New York YankeesWhether acoustic or electric, a guitar was a constant presence in the star’s locker or equipment bag, and it was no surprise when he demonstrated how serious his musical pursuit was with the release of his first album, The Journey Within in 2003. Bernie Williams raised his musical game even further with the release of his second album Moving Forward in 2009 which produced two Billboard Number 1 singles, and a Latin Grammy nomination for Best Instrumental Album. On May 13, 2016, Williams graduated from the Manhattan School of Music, a prestigious music conservatory in New York, receiving a Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Performance.  You can find Bernie on Twitter at @bw51official, and on Facebook and Instagram at @berniewilliamsofficial
