Rising East End musician Dante Mazzetti is performing during The Masonic Winter Music Series on Saturday, April 13. Taking place at the Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum in Sag Harbor from 8 to 9 p.m., proceeds from the spectacular evening will support the Mason’s Pierson High School Scholarship Fund and the Sag Harbor Community Food Pantry.
“I’m so honored to be a part of this benefit series again this year,” Mazzetti reflected. “The proceeds go towards supporting education and feeding those who are hungry – two very important local causes.”
Mazzetti’s unique sound is described as “acoustic indie folk with soul.” The singer songwriter is lauded for his “gritty vocals, fingerpicking guitar style, and engaging live performances.” Even though it’s a one man show, Mazzetti dazzles and impresses as he simultaneously plays numerous instruments, including guitar or mandolin, accompanied by bass, harmonica and percussion.
The musician starred in Levi’s “What’s True” commercial campaign and has opened for notable acts like Ben Folds, Guster, and America.
For Mazzetti, giving back through benefit performances is vital. In addition to The Masonic Winter Music Series, he has partnered with organizations such as the FDNY, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, and The Surfrider Foundation.
Currently, Mazzetti has been busy working on a new album, which is expected to be released this spring. He also has plans to tour the US this summer.
Additional Masonic Winter Music Series concerts include Rose’s Grove Band on May 4, Rafaela Gurtler on May 25, and Sarah Conway on June 8.
Tickets are $20.
“It’s not often you get to be part of an event that is more than just entertainment, but affects the quality of life for so many,” he added.
