Brianna will bring her lively, very entertaining show to Ginny’s Supper Club tonight. This is a great early show choice.  I love her dynamic delivery of jazz.  She’s soulful, very skilled and just plain fun.  Show is from 7:30 – 9:30 this evening at Ginny’s Supper Club, downstairs from Red Rooster Harlem.

Settepani

Settepani offers the extraordinary talent of Rodney Green tonight during their Ode to Harlem series.  He’s an incredibly astute drummer with an equally high level band.  It’s a lovely experience to indulge any of Settepani’s delectable offerings, and it’s a perfect match for the music of Mr. Green.  Show tonight is from 7:00 to 10:00 pm.

Find Settepani at 196 Lenox Avenue @ 120th Street

Nicole Henry Comes to Ginny’s

Ginnys Nicole Henry

You must not miss 2013 Soul Train Awards winner Nicole Henry at Ginny’s Supper Club this weekend, September 25th & 26th.  Ms. Henry will light up the room with her pristine, soulful expression, and her always swinging band.  Her rendition of Bill Withers’ “Use Me” is one of my favorites.

Get your tickets, catch one or more of the shows and let me know what you think!
