This is the third time in recent years that The Follen Angels have appeared at Marblehead Little Theatre, where their performances have sold out.
The group takes its name from Follen Street in Cambridge, which runs past the Longy School of Music, where Grossman studied. She and Dantzig have been performing together for 15 years.
Grossman will be joined in this concert by vocalist Emily Browder of the E.S.P. Trio, a name drawn from the initials of its three singers, who have been performing in the Boston area for more than seven years.
“They’ll be doing individual leads, they’ll be switching back and forth,” Dantzig said. “Emily is a wonderful vocalist, just a very sweet voice.”
Dantzig defined the group’s style as “not a strict cabaret — I would say it’s cabaret and slides into jazz.”
The Follen Angels have been known to come up with creative arrangements for familiar tunes, such as Cole Porter’s “I Got You Under my Skin,” which was often performed by Frank Sinatra.
“We play it not quite in the Sinatra way,” Dantzig said. “In my arrangement of it, it’s like a soul funk tune, which by the way we recorded on our latest CD.”
Though the music the Angels will play was first enjoyed by past generations, Dantzig said young people seem to enjoy their concerts as much as their parents.
“It’s music that a lot of people of younger generations enjoy,” he said. “They may not know it by name, but the songs are recognizable.”
