Originally from Bayville, Long Island, Rorie Kelly says her life’s
calling is to bring her songs around the world in her little blue Toyota, using
them to inspire passion and healing in as many individuals as possible. Her songs
are raw, honest snapshots of life colored by a percussive guitar style and
powerful, emotive vocals. Join her for the ride this Thursday and at http://www.roriekelly.com or http://www.facebook.com/roriekelly
With a voice as powerful as it is sultry and sweet, Christine Sweeney deftly handles poppy and playful without sacrificing genuine emotion. Recently, her original tunes, such as “Book Upon My Shelf,” have been getting more radio attention, and the Long Island native has been interviewed live on air at WUSB and WCWP. Her latest iTunes and physical release, “Live at the Bitter End,” features Dave Ferro, of her band, recorded at the famous NYC music club. www.ChristineSweeney.com or www.Facebook.com/ChristineSweeneymusicOfficial
The monthly Page One Showcase
features three performers in a round-robin format. Each gives a short explanation
of how a song was created then performs the song. The spotlight then shifts to the next
performer and then the third. The
performers then go around again, for three more songs each. After the featured acts, the mic is open to
other performers who sign up to play that evening.
Page One Chef Jeanine DiMenna
has created a special menu for Showcase night.
A sampling includes fish ‘n chips, sesame chicken, wraps with lamb
souvlaki or pork, a bowl of mussels, and an array of burger combos with blue
cheese, hot sauce or three onion sautés.
Entrees range in price for $5-$15.
