    LUCYS_DANCE_PARTY_FLYER_2016_Final-663x1024Dance off the cold with The Loyales, a party band I play with that NY Magazine called "A living, breathing jukebox, full of expertly curated 45s."  Our playlist includes classic soul, Stax and Motown, classic country and bluegrass, vintage reggae and some choice 80's favorites.  We rarely showcase in public- mostly we play hipster weddings and swanky corporate parties. So come join us at a cool function space in Gowanus called simply 501 Union St.

    Bill, Still! The Music of Bill Withers

    9pm

    Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 2
    196 Allen St, NYC

    Bill Still flyer 3Everybody loves Bill Withers.  But if you're like me, there are some "deep-cut" BW songs you might not know.  And, with his notoriously low profile in the scene, he hasn't performed live in decades.  Bill, Still! seeks to present Withers' music in a modern, straightforward context that let's the man's songs and classic arrangements shine without unnecessary adornment. Put simply, we've assembled a list of Bill's hits and some lesser-known gems and a group of NYC's funkiest cats are going to deliver simply and straight to your soul, with deep reverence and love.  Singer/guitarist Irving Louis Lattin is one of NYC's true blues & soul treasures and the rest of us are no slouches either.

    Irving Louis Lattin (vocals/guitar), Al Street (guitar), BP (keys), Andy Hess (bass), Ethan Eubanks (drums/MD)

    Bennett Paster Group

    8-10:30pm

    61 Local
    61 Bergen St, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn

    The Acoustic Electric Piano Series, curated by Brian Whiton and Big Wrench Piano present this evening of music at this hip Carroll Gardens performance space.  I'll be playing a meticulously renovated Wurli 200A electric piano that Steve and Brian at Big Wrench have fixed up.

    My trio covers a lot of musical ground, from original music to favorites from the American Songbook, jazz standards, Latin and Brazilian tunes and classic rock and R&B favorites. The unifying factor is that we play songs we truly know and love, and we creatively explore the diverse repertoire and make it undeniably jazz. I've has been playing a Wurlitzer electric piano for over 25 years and I consider the instrument a vital voice in my musical self-expression.

    7:30pm

    Braun Music Center
    471 Lagunita Drive
    Stanford, CA 94305

    From Music of My Mind to Innervisions and Songs in the Key of Life, the improvisation-infused performances and massive grooves of the amazing songs of Stevie Wonder have inspired jazz musicians. Stevie’s unusual chord progressions and virtuosic melodies are the perfect vehicle for jazz explorations by SJW faculty artists, led by Bennett Paster. Stevie’s songs are always better with a great voice, and for this we’re thrilled to present Claytoven, a dazzling vocalist whose credits include singing with artists such as Celine Dion, Michael Bolton, Elton John, Peabo Bryson, New Kids on the Block, Ricky Martin, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Aretha Franklin, Natalie Cole, and many others.

    Claytoven Richardson, vocals
    Bennett Paster, keyboards
    Allison Miller- drums
    Josh Thurston-Milgrom- bass
    And other members of the SJW faculty- Check back here soon for additional personnel updates

    Bill, Still! The Music of Bill Withers

    8:30-11pm

    Bar Lunatico
    486 Halsey Street, Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, NY

    Everybody loves Bill Withers. But if you're like me, there are some "deep-cut" BW songs you might not know. And, with his notoriously low profile in the scene, he hasn't performed live in decades. Bill, Still! seeks to present Withers' music in a modern, straightforward context that let's the man's songs and classic arrangements shine without unnecessary adornment. Put simply, we've assembled a list of Bill's hits and some lesser-known gems and a group of NYC's funkiest cats are going to deliver simply and straight to your soul, with deep reverence and love.

    Irving Louis Lattin (vocals/guitar), Al Street (guitar), BP (keys), Andy Hess (bass), Ethan Eubanks (drums/MD)
