Beatnik Studios 3rd Thursdays Jazz Night 7 to 10 PM


Singer/Chanteuse Vivian Lee Does Holiday and Holidaze at the new Beatnik Studios! (Sacramento, CA) On Thursday, Dec. 19,  the new Beatnik Studios hosts the monthly Third Thursday Jazz Series, closing out the year with the recording artist who was featured in the very first soiree, singer/chanteuse Vivian Lee.

"The locally based vocalist and impresario Vivian Lee takes on one of the greatest legends as she pays tribute to Billie Holiday. Lee's warm, engaging style is quite different from Lady Day's raw emotionalism, but the Sacramento singer knows how to tell a story and thoroughly understands the American Songbook, as well." (Marcus Crowder, The Sacramento Bee) Expect some classic holiday songs too from this elegant chanteuse and her excellent band.

The series, which ranges from straight-ahead to bop to vocalese, and brings in players from across the West Coast, is programmed by local alto sax player and composer, Jeff Alkire.  Often, great area players stop and sit in during the warm (but hot playing!!) and convivial evening. Beatnik Studios723 S Street (new location in the former Pamela Skinner Gallery)Sacramento, CA
