Annapolis-based act Kings of Crownsville are a roots Rock band with a New Orleans flavor. The brainchild of New Orleans-raised guitarist/singer/songwriterSteve Johnson, the Kings play a rollicking, entertaining set that stirs Americana, Blues, and Jazz into the mix.

Their signature horn section transports listeners to the streets of the Big Easy, while they also add precise three- and four-part harmonies to their musical gumbo. Think Louis Armstrong meets Steely Dan.

The Kings of Crownsville features Johnson backed by Ed Justice on trumpet, flugelhorn and vocals; Jim Tavener on trombone, percussion, and vocals; Mike McCormick on keyboards and vocals; David Vermette on bass and vocals; and Rob Creath behind the drums. Johnson's songs are destined to become classics.


"Homegrown Americana boogie blues and big band rockin' swing jazz is a chunky description of the Kings.  The 6-piece band lends guitar, bass, drums, piano, trumpet, trombone, and vocal harmony.  The result is a robust, polished sound that makes for easy toe-tapping and dancing."

MBK consists of brothers Benjamin, Titus, and Joshua Luckhaupt on guitar, mandolin, and fiddle respectively. Wyatt "Sawmill" Murray completes this ensemble on the upright bass. With original music that draws inspiration from Bluegrass, Rock and everything in between, MBK strives to be unique as well as listenable. MBK features tight, four part harmonies, rock driven lead vocals, blazing solos, and complex and interlaced musical interludes. In an effort to be unique and open minded, and bring a fresh blend of Bluegrass to new audiences, My Brother's Keeper has presented itself as one of the fastest rising Bluegrass bands on the scene of Cincinnati music.

Chicago singer-songwriter, Joe George, performs an opening set.  http://www.joegeorgemusic.net

Charisma Wooten’s most endearing characteristic is a deep respect for the cabaret performing tradition and her desire to share it with her audience.  In this concert she [pays] tribute to icons such as Mabel Mercer, Billie Holiday, Eartha Kitt, and Josephine Baker.  Indeed, the highlight of the evening [is] “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” in the style of Rose Murphy (The Chee Chee Girl) and Louis Armstrong.

Other highlights [include] a jazzy take on Mac David and Elmer Bernstein’s “A Walk on the Wild Side” and a worldly-wise reading of Bernard Ighner‘s “Everything Must Change.” "

Michael Miyazaki, Cabaret Scenes Magazine 

Ms. Wooten is accompanied by Everett P. Williams, Jr. on piano and Marshall Keys on saxophone. 


"Wooten’s other strength is her confident command of her audience.  She led two of the more effective audience participation numbers I’ve seen of late.    And she performed one of the best bows and runoffs I’ve ever seen in a cabaret – as she rode the crest of her audience’s enthusiasm."

Pianist Frederick Hodges exquisitely  performs the greatest songs of George Gershwin, including such favorites as "Embraceable You," "I Got Rhythm," Love Is Here To Stay," "Porgy and Bess," plus exciting discoveries from the Gershwin Archives.


Best of the Best. I don't usually name a single performer as "the best" in these lists because it's far too subjective and might result in hurt feelings. That being said, how about that Frederick Hodges? His amazing keyboard dexterity is well-known, but his mere presence at an event serves to elevate it to new levels of wit, style, class and professionalism. Frederick was all over the West Coast Ragtime Festival, performing solo, in duets with ADam Swanson and Alex Hassan, with the Crown Syncopators, singing, accompanying other singers, emceeing the Youth Concert, presenting the master class, and accompanying silent movies — all of this pus the ironically arch syntax, the straight über-blonde hair, and dapper wardrobe. Extraordinary.

After leaving their home base of Virginia and living on the road for 2 years, Laura and Kagey now call Baltimore, Maryland home and it's where they wrote and recorded their fourth full-length album, Tangled Country, released May 2015. Acoustic Guitar Magazine describes the set of songs as “a handcrafted sound centered on swarming harmonies and acoustic guitars that churn like a paddlewheel and shimmer like heat waves on the highway.” And like their stage performance, these songs rock and reel, and then they console you when you come back down.

The Carlo Aonzo Trio performs "A Mandolin Journey." A capturing musical journey with the mandolin and the different influences and stylistic evolutions of the instrument across continents and history. With Lorenzo Piccone (guitar) and Luciano Puppo (double-bass), Carlo Aonzo, international performer, teacher and mandolin scholar presents this album, the outcome of a long and intense work of historical research and musical arrangements. Setting out from Naples shores and the most classical Italian mandolin tradition, the repertoire lands at the Americas ranging from the classical patterns, to the Italian songs of the 50s, to the swing music, and to the more complex rhythms strongly influenced by the United States and South America. A unique and fascinating musical evening celebrating an event of great artistic and cultural impact.

This is the official kickoff event of the Little Italy Madonnari Arts Festival 2018! Doors open at 7 for pre-show dining and show begins at 8.


We started from the Italian roots of the mandolin - a strong iconic symbol of Italy in the world - and we explored its wide repertoire, attaining, through new atmospheres and sonorities, a rich mixture of culture and tradition, which are extremely important to the music of our country. Following its tracks in search of fortune towards the Americas, we unearthed musical scores and different ways of approaching the instrument, thus creating a fascinating itinerary ranging from classical music to folk, choro, jazz and more…..

With nearly 1,000 engagements in the four years they’ve been performing as a duo,acoustic guitarists Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo have become one of the most popular and sought-after duos on the international music scene. Their dynamic genre-spanning music has brought them to 14 countries on three continents performing in some of the world’s most illustrious venues, including the Sydney Opera House in Australia, The Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, New York’s Lincoln Center and the world’s oldest indoor concert hall, Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, Italy. Often featured on National Public Radio, Frank and Vinny have also become familiar figures on Public Television. Previously featured on three popular shows including the heavily programmed Tommy Emmanuel and Friends, Frank and Vinny’s own PBS special, Four Generations of Guitars premiered in 2014. There is very little improvisation, but a sense of spontaneity, imagination and virtuosity that are hallmarks of jazz are fully present in all of Frank Vignola’s performances.  A typical performance will take the audience on a breathtaking whirlwind tour of musical history. Bach, Mozart and Beethoven will be freely mixed with Ellington and Waller, blended with Gershwin and Carmichael, peppered with Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin, Sting and Lennon/McCartney and spiced with Rodrigo and Lecuona. Tonight, with special guest Guy Mazzaroppi on bass, they are the Frank Vignola Hot Jazz GuitarTrio.

"How versatile is Frank Vignola? He's collaborated with Lionel Hampton and Madonna, covers Mozart and Black Sabbath on the same record and is one of Les Paul's favorite guitarists." - Joan Anderman, Boston Globe 

"Guitar virtuosity at its highest level- a must hear!" djangoblog.com

 


"There is little in this world so awe-inspiring as witnessing total mastery of a musical instrument. Like seeing Yo-Yo Ma play the cello or Placido Domingo belt out an aria - sometimes a performer's perfection can elevate a piece of music to heights beyond the realm of imagination. By all accounts, Frank Vignola conjures just that sort of magic with his acoustic guitar."

One of the last vestiges of vaudeville took place from 1917 to 1920, when actor Raymond Hitchcock (aka “Hitchy”) organized a series of musical revues featuring up-and-coming young composers of the era, including Jerome Kern, E. Ray Goetz and Cole Porter. The shows, known as “Hitchy-Koos,” played successfully on Broadway and even went on a national tour.

Hitchy-Koo 2018 is a fundraiser for the House of Bankerd (aka “HOB”), a Baltimore arts collective which provides support to arts organizations throughout the Baltimore metropolitan area, featuring members of the HOB board and guest artists singing songs by composers of the period from the 1910s through the 1930s. Singers Lisa Dickinson, Karen Rhodovi, Christine Thomas, Lance Bankerd, and Christopher Rhodovi join pianist Robert Barbarino for a rollicking romp through music of stage and screen by the Hitchy-Koo composers of yore plus Gershwin, Berlin, and other greats of the Golden Age.

Charisma Wooten’s most endearing characteristic is a deep respect for the cabaret performing tradition and her desire to share it with her audience.  In this concert she [pays] tribute to icons such as Mabel Mercer, Billie Holiday, Eartha Kitt, and Josephine Baker.  Indeed, the highlight of the evening [is] “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” in the style of Rose Murphy (The Chee Chee Girl) and Louis Armstrong.

Other highlights [include] a jazzy take on Mac David and Elmer Bernstein’s “A Walk on the Wild Side” and a worldly-wise reading of Bernard Ighner‘s “Everything Must Change.” "

Michael Miyazaki, Cabaret Scenes Magazine 

Ms. Wooten is accompanied by Everett P. Williams, Jr. on piano and Marshall Keys on saxophone. 


"Wooten’s other strength is her confident command of her audience.  She led two of the more effective audience participation numbers I’ve seen of late.    And she performed one of the best bows and runoffs I’ve ever seen in a cabaret – as she rode the crest of her audience’s enthusiasm."

Roger Schmelzer puts the American Songbook to generous and charming use in an upbeat tuneful evening directed by the legendary Marilyn Maye.  He made a “delightful” NYC debut according to Theater Pizzazz, bringing a crisp, fresh sound to classic pop tunes and underperformed cabaret gems. 

On piano is Jeffrey Harris, who accompanies Ms. Maye and music directs for Maureen McGovern and Lea Salonga

The title “HeartSongs” refers to Roger’s optimistic focus on what is good and what works in our lives.  “The Great American Songbook has never had more to offer,” he says.  “This music brings us together and reassures friends and family that they can chart their own course with confidence, conviction and a spring in their step.”    

Roger’s CD, "About Now" was described by public radio as "Chock-full of the sorts of clever lyrics and lush arrangements that characterize songs for intimate settings from the last century to today." Tracks from “About Now" have been played extensively on radio stations and streaming services around the world.

Roger has served on the board of the Great American Songbook Foundation founded by Michael Feinstein, is past board chair for The Cabaret in Indianapolis and raises money for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, second only to the U.S. government as a finder of pediatric cancer research. Roger and his wife, Indianapolis actor Cindy Phillips have three grown children and a granddaughter!


“Roger is confident, charming and original…quickly connecting with his audience thanks to lively arrangements of melodic tunes with clever or meaningful lyrics…”  MYRA CHANIN, Theatre Pizzazz 

“Roger makes it his business to entertain you.  He is fun, festive, fervent and friendly.  His love for the music is contagious and you’ll love the man who presents it!” MARILYN MAYE, cabaret and jazz artist.

“Roger is charming, quirky and original.” JASON GRAAE, cabaret artist

KINGS OF CROWNSVILLE

Annapolis-based act Kings of Crownsville are a roots Rock band with a New Orleans flavor. The brainchild of New Orleans-raised guitarist/singer/songwriterSteve Johnson, the Kings play a rollicking, entertaining set that stirs Americana, Blues, and Jazz into the mix.

Their signature horn section transports listeners to the streets of the Big Easy, while they also add precise three- and four-part harmonies to their musical gumbo. Think Louis Armstrong meets Steely Dan.

The Kings of Crownsville features Johnson backed by Ed Justice on trumpet, flugelhorn and vocals; Jim Tavener on trombone, percussion, and vocals; Mike McCormick on keyboards and vocals; David Vermette on bass and vocals; and Rob Creath behind the drums. Johnson's songs are destined to become classics.


"Homegrown Americana boogie blues and big band rockin' swing jazz is a chunky description of the Kings.  The 6-piece band lends guitar, bass, drums, piano, trumpet, trombone, and vocal harmony.  The result is a robust, polished sound that makes for easy toe-tapping and dancing."

Occidental Gypsy has an original approach to Gypsy Jazz that pays homage to Django Reinhardt and expands the genre to include elements of western (Occidental) sounds, including blues, Klezmer and Latin. The acoustic quintet features prodigy Eli Bishop on violin, who performs regularly at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Bishop enthralls audiences as the current Guinness Book of World Records fastest clapper, and is also featured in their new song “Messalina, Lover Lamb.”    The compositions in the band’s latest CD 44070 include musical journeys both complex and danceable. Most notable among them are “Vrba” and “Children’s March,” both of which are human rights-themed instrumental pieces considered masterful reinterpretations of Hot Club Jazz by fans. Occidental Gypsy’s lyrical songs like “Gypsy Blues” and classic tunes like “Over the Rainbow” have a catchy vibe and fresh approach. Musician David Bromberg says of Occidental Gypsy, “these guys have great singing, fantastic guitar and violin work, and high energy originals that leave the crowd crazy. An awesome band.”   

Occidental Gypsy has played over 200 concerts in 30 states including; Djangofest in Seattle, Mill Valley California and Las Vegas; Rhythm & Roots Festival; Falcon Ridge Folk Festival; The Green Mill in Chicago; The Old Town School in Chicago; Nighttown in Cleveland; The Triple Door in Seattle; World Café Live in Philadelphia and Wilmington; The Ark in Ann Arbor; and The Jazz Kitchen in Indianapolis and many more.  The band’s performances have so much energy, they’ve often been heralded as 'rock stars with acoustic guitars.' Their vibrant playing, original approach and expert musicianship is also now gaining them new attention overseas.
