Live Music in St. Louis – Hear This Week: February 10 – 15
Love is in the air – being Valentine’s Day and all – so here’s a special edition Bands of Note:
Live Music in St. Louis
Monday, February 10 – At the Shaved Duck, Dizzy Atmosphere plays from 5:30 to 8:30 while patrons dine on fine BBQ and soul food. This violin/guitar duo plays great jazz from Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli through the Latin jazz work of Carlos Jobim and Xavier Cugat. A treat. No cover.
Friday – Valentine’s Day
Doesn’t get more love-ly than spending it with the soft jazz vocal stylings of our own Erin Bodie at the Ferring Jazz Bistro. $10–$26, two shows 7:30 pm and 9:30 pm.
At the Broadway Oyster Bar, that musical heartbreaker Marquise Knox takes the stage. No doubt that in additional to his soulful blues he’ll throw in some R&B love songs. 10 pm, $10
Out in Wildwood at the Parkside Grill, Robert Nelson of the Renaissance Band strikes out on his own to share his golden voice playing jazz and soul. 7 pm. No cover.
If you really want to turn up the heat, head to the Boom Boom Room for a VaVa Voom Valentine’s Day burlesque dinner and show. “We are the perfect place to get the romance started” though gosh if they are implying this is where you take a first date, I think we’re going to blush. It’s totally fun though. Doors open 6 pm, $80.
Saturday, February 15 – Don’t stop the love – Feyza Eren does a special matinee “My Funny Valentine” show at the Sheldon. Pianist Nick Schlueter and bassist Ric Vice join her for a bouquet of love songs. 11 am, $12.
What the Locals Know: If you happened to be attracted to the same sex and/or absolutely love belting out a tune while a mighty fine pianist accompanies you, than Keypers Piano Bar is for you. Did we say seven nights a week? We sure did. And of course they play Broadway songs. Fridays it starts at 7 pm, otherwise 9 pm and there’s never a cover (though for goodness sake tip the pianist).
Music Note of Note: Celebrate Black History Month at our National Blues Museum, as it tells the story of the blues and African Americans’ contribution to music. Check out the Cigar Box Guitars: 21st Century traveling exhibit.
