Sunday Gospel Finale!

We hope you’ll join us this Sunday afternoon! The 16th anniversary finale of Ken Whiteley’s Sunday afternoon Gospel series @ Hugh’s Room Live will feature the award winning vocalist and songwriter Skakura S’Aida and the amazing musical prowess of Nikki D. Brown & The Sisters of Thunder. The final show in this season’s series will bring together an incredible afternoon of gospel blues. Music from 2pm. There is a $25 all-you- can-eat buffet before the concert or you’re welcome to arrive just in time for the music. Advance tickets online from Hugh’s Room Live or in person at the door. See you there!

On April 17 @ the Jazz Bistro, a new chapter begins with Whiteley Wednesdays, featuring Chris, Jesse and Ken Whiteley playing and singing a unique assortment of jazz standards and occasional originals all tinged with swinging blue notes.  This will be the first “gig” by this Whiteley trio, brothers Chris (trumpet, guitar, vocals) and Ken (guitar, vocals) with Chris’ son, Jesse (piano, vocals).  Of course we’ve played together before lots of times but it wasn’t until Jesse was debuting a collaboration with Raoul Bhaneja at the Jazz Bistro that this particular combination came up in public. Chris and I were sitting in, the three of us played a song together and the next day, Sybil from the Jazz Bistro was in touch to make this happen.  The plan is for a combination of Whiteleys to hold down the Wednesdays of April 17, May 22 and June 19.  After that, who knows?
