Percussionist Stephane Seva of the Paris Washboard plays with a New York version of his all-star band at The Bickford Theater, Morris Museum, 6 Normandy Heights Road, Morristown, on Monday, Nov. 5.

Stéphane Séva is not a traditional washboard player. His instrument has a horizontal undulating surface, with several attachments that make other percussive sounds. He is an outstanding rhythm player, who sings occasionally too, adding to the versatility of the group.

New York Washboard duplicates the instrumentation of its French counterpart. At the Bickford, Dan Levinson will play clarinet; Matt Musselman will play slide trombone; Gordon Webster plays the big Kawai grand piano.
