Pianist and composer, singer and songwriter; Robert Thomas is multi-genre entertainer with flair and panache coming out of his pores! Expect to hear him sing and play his favorite Pop and Jazz tunes along with a slew of humorous ditties like My Attorney Bernie and Slappin’ the Cakes by Dave Frishberg and poignant songs like Charles Mingus’s Goodbye Pork Pie Hat and Sting’s Sister Moon. Another session’s showcase that is sure to fill up fast! Peggy Ratusz opens.
The Asheville Lounge Sessions
The Isis Music Hall will be hosting a brand-new weekly series called The Asheville Lounge Sessions. Featuring and focusing on area vocalists, the 90 minute dinner and a showcase will take place in the intimate upstairs lounge.
Veteran guitarist and accomplished songwriter, Jonathan Pearlman who once hosted the area’s premiere and time-honored Thursday night Jazz Jam in downtown Asheville, will reprise his band leading role for this series. He will direct a rotating-member house band that will back up local vocalists performing various styles of music each Thursday night beginning at 7pm.
Opening the showcase each week, and serving as MC will be Best In Blues Chanteuse, Peggy Ratusz. While the crux of each month of Thursdays will feature singers in the upstairs lounge, occasionally Jonathan and Peggy will switch things up and become hosts of The Asheville Jam Session starting at 8:30pm downstairs on the main stage. For these nights, area musicians and musician-vocalists will jam the night away for 2 hours of impromptu, extemporaneous Blues and Jazz music!
