Jazz
BeanRunner Cafe
201 S. Division Street @ Esther
Peekskill, NY   See Map
For anyone who loves joyful, unpretentious, but highly creative and spontaneous jazz, Todd Londagin’s new album Look Out For Love will be a delightful discovery. In the company of four longstanding musical cohorts, Todd has assembled a repertoire of 10 songs, culled from the Great American Songbook and popular songs. Bassist Jennifer Vincent and drummer David Berger have been playing with Todd since the early 1990s (all three were original members of the successful ‘90s band, The Flying Neutrinos); while pianist Matt Ray and guitarist Pete Smith have been performing with Todd since 2000. Together, they artfully and lovingly developed each piece like an assortment of delicious dishes combined together for a cohesive feast. As Todd explains, "each tune is an exercise in doing things in a different way." Unabashed swing is definitely a consistent mood throughout the CD.

The D-Major Project
Rock (classic)
BeanRunner Cafe
201 S. Division Street @ Esther
Peekskill, NY   See Map
The DMajor Project features a brilliant collaboration of musicians who approach the repertoire they perform from a wide eclectic mix of influences. Although often referred to as "an improvisational jazz group", that only describes one aspect of what their music really is. More accurately, The DMajor Project performs everything from folk to jazz to classic soul, Latin, neo-funk, world beat, roots and pop music, but always in their own unorthodox way! They take popular songs from every era, in all genres and styles, and mostly re-write, re- arrange, re-harmonize and rhythmically transform them into their own fun, quirky, original and truly unique renditions.

The band is centered around the mesmerizing vocal stylings of DEBBIE MAJOR ("DMajor") accompanied by the extraordinary talents of KEN McGLOIN (guitar & ukulele), AKIE BERMISS (pian, keyboards & vocals), and JON BATES (drums & percussion).

$10 admission.
