E’lissa Jones Band to provide live music March 1

The Beacon Sloop Club announces its Ninth Annual Woody Benefit Dinner, scheduled for Sunday, March 1, at the Towne Crier Café, 379 Main St. in Beacon.

Cocktail hour and appetizers begin at 5 p.m. A buffet dinner follows at 6, with raffle and door prizes. Live music will be provided by the E’lissa Jones Band, a kinetic band known for buoyantly blending elements of rock, jazz, blues, funk, country, folk and tango into a good time.

Jones is a prolific singer-songwriter and classically trained violinist who also plays guitar, piano, mandolin, ukulele and cello. This multi-instrumentalist is originally from Colorado and currently lives in the Hudson Valley.

Jones is presently touring the Tristate area with her backing bandmates, Mark McNutt on guitar, Mickey Kopchak on bass and Michael Hickey on drums, with whom she has performed for the past seven years.

Jones has released five CDs, toured with legends and is currently working on the release of her new CD. Musical stylings range from folk to rock to reinvented popular covers. For more information on Jones, visit elissajones.com.

Proceeds go to the restoration of the Beacon Sloop Club’s environmental education sailing sloop, the Woody Guthrie, which needs a new hull this year. Tickets cost $75.
