The Back Room presents Sam’s Corner featuring Roberta Donnay!
About once a month, our own Sam Rudin takes the stage in a variety of formats. Last month he had his old band come out for some high energy blues and jazz. Tonight he will deliver some solo performances, and he will also be joined by the wonderful singer Roberta Donnay.
A long-time favorite of audiences in California and beyond, Roberta has been associated with several genres and styles of American music. For many years she has been a featured member of Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks. More recently she formed the Prohibition Mob, a terrific band dedicated to the music of the 20’s and 30’s. Their debut album has gotten, and continues to get, very favorable treatment from the national Jazz press, and radio stations around the country.
Tonight she will bring that same material to the more intimate setting of a piano/vocal duo. Sam, as you may know, is right at home with vintage jazz, and they intend to have a lot of fun.
The Back Room is an all-ages, BYOB (for those 21+) space, dedicated to (mostly) acoustic music of all kinds. You are welcome to bring your own adult beverage with no additional corkage fee.
