    9pm-12am

    Sunny's Bar Red Hook
    253 Conover St, Brooklyn, NY

     

    Dance off the cold with The Loyales, a party band I play with that NY Magazine called "A living, breathing jukebox, full of expertly curated 45s."  Our playlist includes classic soul, Stax and Motown, classic country and bluegrass, vintage reggae and some choice 80's favorites.  We rarely showcase in public- mostly we play hipster weddings and swanky corporate parties. So come join us in Hipster Red Hook for music, dancing, drinks and merriment.

    No cover charge- donations appreciated.

    Bill, Still! The Music of Bill Withers

    9-11:30pm

    Bar Lunatico
    486 Halsey Street, Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, NY

    Everybody loves Bill Withers. But if you're like me, there are some "deep-cut" BW songs you might not know. And, with his notoriously low profile in the scene, he hasn't performed live in decades. Bill, Still! seeks to present Withers' music in a modern, straightforward context that let's the man's songs and classic arrangements shine without unnecessary adornment. Put simply, we've assembled a list of Bill's hits and some lesser-known gems and a group of NYC's funkiest cats are going to deliver simply and straight to your soul, with deep reverence and love.

    Irving Louis Lattin (vocals/guitar), Al Street (guitar), BP (keys), Andy Hess (bass), Ethan Eubanks (drums/MD)
