We are thrilled to welcome back this jazz & blues vocalist!
Jazz and Blues vocalist Samirah Evans will be accompanied by pianist Andrew Aramini and bassist Dave Picchi.
Aramini will be making his debut performance at the lounge, he is a students at Willams College where Evans teaches. "Andrew is fabulous"...exclaims Samirah! "He is my absolute first pick to lead the band in accompanying my students for recitals that I prepare as if they're my own concerts". Aramini recently accompanied Samirah during the Williams College faculty concert, performing with the likes of legendary bassist Avery Sharp, saxophonist Kris Allen and drummer Connor Meehan.
Dave Picchi is a very sought after groove man on bass. In addition to his own projects he has been a standing member of Samirah Evans and Her Handsome Devils, performed with the renowned jazz vocalist Karin Allyson, and is currently a member of pianist Eugene Uman's Convergence Project.
Most of all, Evans assets -- which once made her the toast of pre-Katrina New Orleans -- include her sultry, sometimes silken, always smoking hot vocals and vibrant stage presence. Add to this gumbo of saucy ingredients her passion for connecting with her audience while she’s moving and grooving on-stage.”
