The Listening Bar November 2013

Gail Storm

Van Nostrand Theater, Suffolk Community College

Fresh off of a tour of Korea, this local pianist/vocalist delivers a show filled with her trademark keyboard work. In addition to a taste of boogie-woogie music, “The Storm” adds a refreshing touch of classic jazz and original songs to the mix.

Nancy Atlas Project and Gene Casey & The Lone Sharks

The Suffolk Theater, Riverhead

Don’t miss the theater’s “Best of the Best” party featuring indie rocker Nancy Atlas and the countrified rockabilly sounds of The Lone Sharks.

The Blues & Soul Jam Revue

Greens Irish Pub, Manhasset

My pick for hidden gem of the month is this regular Tuesday night blues jam, which features some of the heaviest players of the local music scene. On hand to smooth the groove will be guitarist Mike Nugent, of Cadillac Moon fame, 2011 Blues Hall of Fame inductee Arthur Neilson and renowned local madcap pianist Professor Mark Mancini.

Randy Jackson

The Blue Parrot, Massapequa

A member of Zebra, the ever-popular LI rock outfit, Jackson will be performing an evening of acoustic music. His last appearance at this intimate club drew rave reviews when his friend Terry Brock (of Kansas) joined Jackson for several numbers.
