It's the ultimate spot to mix and mingle with talented show folk and their fans. There is a $20 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.
NYC: THE REVELATIONS AT THE BLUE NOTE
The Revelations will perform at the 8:00 pm show at THE BLUE NOTE (131 West 3rd Street, NYC - 212-475-8592) on Monday, January 19th. For The Revelations, their latest CD offering, The Cost Of Living (Decision/ Sony RED), is a labor of love years in the making. Since they first came on the scene in 2008 with their Deep Soul EP (Decision), Brooklyn, NY's The Revelations have represented a twenty-first-century take on classic soul - one which shows reverence for the masters, but with a uniquely modern sensibility. On The Cost Of Living, Rell Gaddis assumes the lead vocal duties previously provided by Tre Williams. This is by no means Rell's debut with The Revelations, however. Rell has been part of the group's writing team from their onset, and performed with the band for years, even contributing lead vocals to "It's Too Late" from their 2009 album The Bleeding Edge (Decision). Since being signed to Jay-Z's Roc-a-fella Records back in 1997, Rell has had a prolific singing and writing career, creating his own records, as well as penning and lending vocals to songs featuring artists Usher (Rell wrote Usher's #1 RnB Hit "Here I Stand"), Jay-Z, Kanye West, Mary J Blige, and many more. This workman-like mentality is pervasive throughout the band as well. The Revelations feature Wes Mingus on guitar, Gintas Janusonis on drums, and newcomer Ben Zwerin on bass. Each accomplished performing and session musicians in their own right, The Revelations have combined to provide music for icons such as the Wu-Tang Clan and Lee "Scratch" Perry, as well as soul royalty Otis Clay, Willie Clayton, Benny Latimore, and Swamp Dogg. The distinctive blues/rock/soul sound of The Cost Of Living was recorded at soul mecca Royal Studios in Memphis, TN, produced by Bob Perry with Lawrence "Boo" Mitchell, as well as The Revelations themselves. For this project, the band is joined by Stax and Hi Records session legends Bobby Manuel (guitar), Lester Snell (keyboards), and Charles Hodges (organ). Lyrically, The Cost Of Living weaves tales of perseverance despite hardship. From the opening track, "Mama", about a single mother scrounging to raise her children, to the jaded optimism of "It's Ok", the pragmatism of "Money Makes The World Go 'Round", and the heart-broken disillusionment of the soul classic "Got To Use My Imagination", The Revelations continue their tradition of presenting blues topics with soul music's urgency. The Revelations' engaging and energetic live performances continue to win over audiences from Brooklyn to the Mississippi Delta to California and beyond, creating fans such as A-listers B.B. King, Bobby Womack and Stevie Wonder in the process. This is new, true soul music with a sharp, modern edge. There is a $10-$15 cover.
NYC: CHRIS ROB AT THE BLUE NOTE
Chris Rob will be featured performer at the 10:30 pm show at THE BLUE NOTE (131 West 3rd Street, NYC - 212-475-8592) on Monday, January 19th. Sharing the biggest stages with some of the greatest R&B legends, jazz lions and hip-hop heavyweights in the game, Chris Rob has established his presence on all fronts as a pianist, singer, songwriter and producer. Just as a true point guard is a rare commodity in the NBA, Rob's musicianship and ability to get the most out of his fellow musicians has given him the reputation as an MVP alongside music's very greatest. His most noteworthy accomplishments to date include his recent tour through Russia as part of The New Stars of America: Body & Soul Tour, being a featured artist at 2012's Montreal Jazz Festival, producing for and touring with Grammy Award winning artist Roberta Flack, opening for and performing with Stevie Wonder at President Obama's Pre-Inaugural Ball, as well as contributing to Kanye West's Grammy award-winning album Graduation. He also served as music director for John Legend's Get Lifted Tour. One of Chris Rob's singles, "Sex. Money. & Drugs", from his last album Mental Notes was featured in Tyler Perry's film "Peeples", while recent club banger, "Found Myself" with co-producer DJ Ian Friday, hit number one on Traksource.com dance floor charts. When Rob is not on stage or in the studio, he's working behind the scenes as a writer and stage director for his brother, comedian/ actor/ musician Craig Robinson ("The Office"), as well as performing with R & B legends from Anita Baker to Gordon Chambers, or hip hop artists from Talib Kweli and Black Moon. He also has scored for several independent movies, including "Phunny Business", "For Colored Boys" and "Bittersweets." There is a $10-$15 cover.
