Jun-28-18 07:00 PM Nona Hendryx's Parallel Lives: Billie Holiday & Edith Piaf In many ways, Billie Holiday and Edith Piaf lived parallel lives: the two women, whose heartrending loves and lives fed the soulful, singularity of their voices, were born during the same year on opposite shores. Both became national treasures in their homelands and were two of the most celebrated chanteuses of their time (and all time) across the world, but they never met. They died 4 years apart in the cities they loved. Curated by revolutionary art-rock, new-wave goddess Nona Hendryx and an international roster of contemporary vocalists, Parallel Lives is a meeting of the minds and music of these two legends—a global celebration of both ‘Lady Day’ and the ‘Little Sparrow.’ This project has continued to expand and blossom over the past several years. This current iteration has evolved into a hybrid of jazz, blues and classical music, with Tamar Kali singing Edith Piaf's song in the original language; French and the addition of the commanding story telling voice of Carl H. Rux as the narrator. Featuring: Nona Hendryx Tamar Kali Raven O Carl Hancock Rux Backing Vocals: Kiki Hawkins Asa Arnold Keith Fluit Band: Etienne Stadwjck - Piano and Musical Director Will Calhoun - Drums Keith Witty - Bass Scott Trixier - Violin Gwen Laster - Violin Clerida Eltime - Cello Melanie Dyer - Viola About Nona Hendryx: Nona Hendryx, a celebrated vocalist, record producer, songwriter, musician, and author, was an original member of the trio Labelle, whose smash single “Lady Marmalade” is a timeless classic. Her solo singles “Transformation” and “Do What You Wanna Do” from the 80s are as well-known as her work as a back-up vocalist for a legendary acts including Parliament-Funkadelic, Talking Heads and Peter Gabriel. This performance is presented as part of the Joe's Pub Vanguard Award and Residency. joespub.org

Jul-12-18 07:00 PM Nora Jane Struthers & The Party Line Nora Jane Struthers has written "some of the most quietly powerful narratives within the new wave of Americana artists" - NPR Music. The songs that weave themselves into the fabric of listeners' lives are usually the ones in which an artist lays her soul bare for the world to hear. Struthers' new album Champion, is built on these kinds of songs. The 13-song collection written with her band the Party Line, is the follow-up to 2015's Wake, which earned Struthers acclaim from major outlets like NPR Music, Rolling Stone Country, and "Fresh Air" and their Live show is full to the brim with stellar musicianship, unexpected arrangements that blur the lines between folk, roots, and rock, and an audible sense that everyone in the room is having a damn good time.

With their potent musical synergy, Jungr and McDaniel reinvent some of the most iconic anthems of the pivotal year of 1968, when the Viet Nam War and its protestors clashed and raged, and the U.S. saw the assassinations of both Robert F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King. The repertoire of "1968 - Let The Sun Shine In" reflects the tenor of the times with titles including "Born to be Wild," "Do You Know the Way to San Jose?," "Revolution" and "Everlasting Love."

Jul-21-18 07:00 PM Barb Jungr- john mcdaniel Our world is in a whirlwind of change. The American administration is caught in a web of lies and deceit; trust is at an all time low. In Britain, immigration is heavy on our minds, the troubles of Northern Ireland are in the news and we continue to march against war. This is 1968. The summer of love is over and done and in San Francisco the scene has long moved on. Bob Dylan is in Woodstock bringing up his children in his rural retreat and Joan Baez marries her activist. Meanwhile in Vietnam the Tet Offensive is in full swing and Hair prepares to open at The Public Theatre. Martin Luther King is assassinated in Memphis; he is only 39. In Britain, Andrew Lloyd Webber begins his career with Tim Rice and their Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Coal mining in the Black Country ends and Enoch Powell warns that immigrants may “change the character of Britain”. This is 1968 and these are the songs that gave us hope, courage and inspiration. In their shared experiences, perspectives, and musical synergy, Barb and John recall, recreate and reinvent some of the most iconic and surprising anthems of this pivotal year. They are Born to Be Wild, they know the Preacher Man and sing of Revolution. They search for America and a Piece of Your Heart; they are Street Fighting Men and they hope for the dawning of the Age of Aquarius. These are the songs of our time. This is 1968. Singer, performer and recording artist Barb Jungr is ”mesmerising” (New York Times), ”casually virtuosic” (Guardian), an ”alchemist among jazz singers” (Telegraph), possessing a voice which is “shockingly expressive, with an astonishing palette of colours” (Observer). Across her 40 year career she has been internationally acclaimed for combining immaculate vocal technique, impassioned performance, piercing insight and beautifully unexpected musical arrangements to reinterpret European and American popular songs in a manner which The New York Timesdescribed as ”revelatory”. As a live performer, Barb Jungr is always funny, and often hilarious. Like, intentionally. Cabaret Scenes described a performance in November 2016 as “the funniest hour of cabaret I’ve ever seen” from a “world-class raconteur”. Over the past couple of years she has combined her solo work with performances as one half of a double act, for the first time since her legendary collaboration with Michael Parker in the 1980s. Teaming up with the horribly gifted John McDaniel, they have worked together to create an increasing number of very special shows. When paired with Barb, John is a pianist, singer, arranger and partner in banter. He doesn’t even need to bother employing his vast experience as a conductor, a composer and a Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award-winning producer of theatre, albums and television. After a childhood spent putting on shows in the basement of his home in St. Louis, Missouri, his only option was to metamorphose into Mr. Showbusiness. And so it came to pass that he has worked on Broadway as a conductor, musical director, and musical / vocal arranger. He has accompanied stars including Betty Buckley, Tyne Daly, Brooke Shields and Patti LuPone, whose 1995 one-woman show he arranged and conducted. He also spent seven years in living rooms across America as the Musical Director and bandleader on The Rosie O’Donnell Show. In their shows together, Barb and John collide British cabaret nous with American musical theatre chutzpah and two phenomenal songbooks, to generate an embarrassment of talent and expertise. These are unique events, so be sure to catch them now. They’re both busy people living on either side of the Atlantic, and really can’t be expected to wait around for you to pull your finger out and get a babysitter sorted. "Jungr and McDaniel's voices blend so perfectly, it's great they met, and this is eloquently displayed on numbers like 'Wrapped around Your Finger’.” " Barb's singular achievement is that she understands a fundamental point about cabaret – which is that it is about intimacy. You need to be you and you need to be able to look people in the eye. She's masterful at this and others could look and learn.” The American
