    Jonathan Parker Quartet

    2-4pm

    Operation Gig: 131 Buckingham Road, Brooklyn, Outside- Free

    Several years ago I started hearing the sweet sounds of jazz alto saxophone emanating from a balcony in the building next door. Eventually, I called up and introduced myself to neighbor Jonathan Parker. Last fall we started playing together in my backyard for fun; tomorrow, Saturday, 4/10, we’ll be playing Jonathan’s music from the porch of an architecturally interesting house in Prospect Park South as part of Operation Gig.

    Loyales Acoustic

    8-10pm

    Sunny's Bar Red Hook
    253 Conover St, Brooklyn, NY

     

    NY Magazine called The Loyales "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 in Hipster Red Hook for an intimate evening of scaled-down acoustic music.

    No cover charge- donations appreciated.

    Milton (vox/guitar), Julia Joseph (bvox/perc), Martin Kearton (gtr), BP (keys), Jeff Eyrich (bass), Robert Weiss (drums)
