Tuesday 8:00 - 10:00
Every Tuesday night guitar master Arturo assembles a different group of some of the areas greatest musicians and vocalists. Smoldering jazz standards, American Song Book, and interpretations of contemporary music are all included. A different group every week, the same high level of expertise.
Richard DiPollo (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Brian Moloy (vocals, guitar, Mandolin), and Chuck Riordan (vocals and violin) demonstrate what a 40 year musical relationship can produce. A vast catalogue of original songs and their renderings of roots music, early jazz, blues, and Americana are bolstered by a solid framework of exceptional instrumental craftsmanship. The three have spent years as itinerant wandering musicians who are never as much at home as when they play together.
Thursday 8:00 - 11:00
Carrie Jackson and the Jazz Allstars
Rightfully dubbed the Queen of Prospect, this Grande Dame of Jazz has been the reigning Monarch of female vocalists at 16 Prospect for many years. Ms. Jackson’s style is matched only by the greats of Jazz. She is as intuitive an arranger as she is a master sculpture of the voice. On every Thursday night we are treated to a lush and soulful repertoire of Jazz standards, contemporary hits, and American songbook, yet they are elevated to heights only achievable by this inspirational vocalist.
Friday 8:00 - 11:00
Vocalist and pianist Joe Regan kick starts the weekend Friday nights. Joe’s repertoire consists of literally hundreds and hundreds of songs spanning the entire spectrum of music. Joe has played at some the most exclusive venues in New York City and is still a weekly fixture at Don’t Tell Mama in Manhattan. His cabaret style is a favorite in the bar at 16.
