The Blues Cabaret featuring Dave Fleschner, Earl Thomas & members of PGMC
221 NW 10th
Aug. 21, 2014, 8 p.m.
Jimmy Mak’s presents The Blues Cabaret - original blues compositions by Dave Fleschner in the classic supper club environment of Jimmy Mak’s jazz club. 21st Century bluesman, Earl Thomas, and soloists from the Portland Gay Men’s Chorus will sing music that brings the classic blues themes of love, lust, fear and betrayal to an off-broadway atmosphere.
The show combines the grittiest elements of the blues with the nuance of jazz. The deep, understated grooves of Carlton Jackson on drums and Bill Athens on upright bass combined with the erudite nastiness of Alan Hager on guitar and Dave Fleschner on piano will make this an evening that takes the blues to its dirtiest lows and its most exhilarating highs.
Two shows: 8pm and 10pm.
