Valentine’s Day often leaves singles behind, but not at The Velvet Note! You’re not required to be single, but on Friday, February 12th, you can mingle with others who are flying solo, enjoy a world-class performance, treat yourself to dinner and enjoy the festivities of one of the year’s best holidays.
YOUR ENTERTAINMENT: The Shana Tucker Quartet
“Tucker and her cello blur the lines in our heads that divide classical, jazz, folk, R&B and soul.”
“Most importantly, the songs tell a story; that’s what a work of art should do…”
“You rarely see Joni Mitchell invoked as a reference point… because her music is so unique that few can follow her. But in Shana Tucker, we have a worthy successor.”
