We’re gearing up to have another successful Singer Celebration at the DLV Lounge, on Saturday night, July 16th, from 9pm – midnight. DLV Lounge, 300 Bloomfield Ave., Montclair, NJ.
As I’ve done before, I will be the MC and lead vocalist, and I’ve invited two talented singers to be my Featured Vocalists for the evening. Stephen Santoro is a talented young man who loves to both sing the standards and play trombone too. Cliff Walston is a respected Jersey City jazz elder who sings jazz, writes his own lyrics, and is an artist too. Cliff is also a founding member of the Spirit of Life jazz ensemble.
Singers are welcome to come and sign up to sing one with the band. These events have been HUGELY popular, so I do recommend coming early to secure a seat and to get a slot on the sign up list.
And speaking of the band, we will have a killer band. Not only will we have an 8 piece (yes, 8 piece!) house band, with Nick Masters (p), Billy Carrion (b), Michael Mittelsdorf (d), Jon Boudrot (g), JJ Bell (sax), Jim Bogle (tmpt), Stephen Santoro (tmbn), Steve Johnson (tmbn) but we will ALSO have numerous guest musicians sitting in. I’m expecting other bass and drummers to show up, but my friend Chisoo Kim is planning to bring her fiddle (although she also plays bass too!) and so on…
The DLV Lounge is a cozy spot, serving a simple comfort food menu (chicken wings, shrimp and grits, fries) along with cocktails, beer and wine and an extremely friendly vibe.
Come on down, whether you sing or play or just want to hear an amazing night of entertainment.
There’s NO COVER for the show, but tips are graciously accepted.
