Lady Rizo

Genre: Cabaret

"When she belts the last note, everything is in place. The hand is daintily raised just so, the immobile coiffed hair frames her face and the monstrous eyelashes consume the eyes...you’d barely know what decade it is." (Gregory Miller, The New York Post)

"Winkingly sexy chanteuse... Lusciously retro vocals."  (Adam Feldman, Time Out NYC)

"The talented Lady Rizo, who combines glamour, wit, and real vocal chops."  (Michael Musto,  Village Voice)

2 years of sold out monthly Joe's Pub Shows has her heading to the SOHO Theater (London) for a 3 week run that starts next week (check out Time Out London feature:

http://www.timeout.com/london/cabaret/lady-rizo-a-cabaret-star-is-born)

She is currently recording with Reggie Watts and Moby

Here is Stephen Holden's review in the NY times

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/19/arts/music/lady-rizo-a-k-a-amelia-zirin-brown-at-joes-pub.html?_r=0

Though it is rumored that she is the product of a night of unrestrained indulgence between Peggy Lee, Mel Brooks, Nina Simone, Dean Martin and Janis Joplin the truth is Lady Rizo was raised by theatrical gypsies with the highest show business ethics. When she almost looked of age she rebelled against the comforting, unscrubbed, rustic life and set out for a world of harsh metropolitan sophisticates.

The 'Cabaret Superstar' (New York Magazine), comedienne and chanteuse revives the genre by creating vintage arrangements & theatrical explorations of pop songs from every decade. Lady Rizo (nee Amelia Zirin-Brown) co-created the cult caburlesque spectacular Lady Rizo & the Assettes in 2005.

In January 2010 she won her first Grammy on a duet with acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma that was released on a Holiday album featuring Diana Krall, James Taylor and Alison Krauss among others. She also sings and records with multi-platnum recording artist Moby and was nominated for an MVPA for the choreography the video for the single New York, New York featuring Debbie Harry.

She is the Mistress of Ceremonies for current hotspot The Darby, a decadent modern supperclub in the West Village. In the same location as the legendary nightclub Nell's, she performs her pop arrangements there nightly to entertain music luminaries like Prince, Ashford and Simpson, Beyonce & Jay-Z.

A proud recipient of the New York Foundation for the Arts fellowship in 2010, she has performed her sold out show monthly at Joe's Pub since 2009 and has been commissioned for a full length piece by the Public Theater that will premiere as part of the New York Voices series in November 2011.

Lowrider Band

Genre: Blues , Classic Rock , Funk , Pop , Rock

  2. Saturday, May 10 10:00 PM (21+)

Since 1962, members of Lowrider Band have compiled a tapestry of quintessential songs and live performances so musically infectious that its moniker traces from Los Angeles to Mexico City and from London to Copenhagen. And the genius of this Southern California troupe is captured in the musical medley of Hispanic, African-American, Asian and mainstream cultures, resulting in monster compositions such as “Slippin into Darkness,” “Low Rider,” “9 to 5 (Ordinary Man),” “All Day Music” and many other chart-toppers.

Comprising four prolific, multi-platinum singer-songwriters, Howard Scott (guitar), Harold Brown (drums), Lee Oskar (harmonica) and B.B. Dickerson (bass), this dynamic team of accomplished musicians is guilty of dishing up many of the greatest tunes to permeate airwaves since the dawn of radio: “The Cisco Kid,” “Why Can’t We Be Friends,” “Spill the Wine” and “The World is a Ghetto” are a few more mega-hits from the band’s exhaustive discography.

Completing the seven-member posse and lending harmonious support to their distinctive sound are Lance Ellis on sax., Pete Cole on keyboards, and Chuk Barber on percussion. With more than 50 million albums sold that contain compositions from the original four, a plethora of these arias have been sampled and recorded by major artists, including the smash single “You” by singer Janet Jackson,

The Cisco Kid DVD by Los Lonely Boys featuring Willie Nelson and the chic jam “Low Rider” by rock group Korn. Their latest self-tiled disc, Lowrider Band, features eight superbly orchestrated songs, including a riveting live version of “Why Can’t We Be Friends.” It’ll conjure reminisces of back in the day when the gang began their musical conquests.

Lowrider Band and staff are thrilled to announce that band members Howard Scott, Harold Brown, Lee Oskar and B.B. Dickerson have been nominated two times for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

Mycle Wastman w/ Jarod Lawson and Sonia Rao

Genre: Pop , R&B , Soul

  1. Friday, May 23 8:00 PM (All ages)

American soul-singer, Mycle Wastman, emerged as a stealth frontrunner on season 3 of NBC’s The Voice. Rightly so! He delivers a refreshing combination of an old soulful vibe, R&B sensibilities and a splash of pop. Wastman is a singer’s singer, interpreting from all of the greats that have gone before him while still firmly exerting a style of his own. He’s undeniably on par with the vocal legends of our time!

Mycle had a rather difficult childhood since both of his parents struggled with addiction. He moved in with his grandparents and his passion for music was instilled in him when his grandmother, who sang background vocals for Frank Sinatra, sang to him as a child. He also plays guitar, bass and drums, and considers himself a versatile musician playing everything from Zeppelin to Al Green.

Wastman was an Army private a little over 20 years ago, later serving in the Army Reserves as a chaplain’s assistant at Madigan Army Medical Center at Fort Lewis. He then worked construction jobs in Seattle, but by the time he turned 30, he decided to return to his first love. He writes his own music and has released two albums: I’m All Over It (2011) and The Beautiful Stay (2008).

On The Voice three judges turned their chairs hoping to have Mycle on their team after he performed Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together”. Wisely Mycle went with Cee Lo Green who said, “You got the whole spectrum, man, you are the total package”.
