Joy on Fire and guests offer live music every Saturday
The Winery at St. George in Mohegan Lake, a nightclub and restaurant in a 100-year-old stone church, announces its first artist residency with the group Joy on Fire chosen to curate a month-long musical event. Every Saturday in June, the Winery will offer new music as Joy on Fire and one of four different guest artists alternate live sets throughout the night.
Joy on Fire, every Saturday in June: Joy on Fire (joyonfire.com) emerged from Baltimore’s avant-garde music scene. Bass, drums and sax create a potent jazz-rock fusion known as punk-jazz and described as “Zeppelin meets Coltrane.”
Anthony Gach and Harmonic Aggression, June 6: This collection of horn-wailing, guitar-comping, bass-thumping, beat-dropping musicians uses funk, rock, reggae, blues and soul to realize the music of singer/songwriter/trumpeter Gach.
Joe Duraes and the Skills, June 13: LoHud mainstay Joe Duraes (joeduraes.com) weaves tales that explore themes of love, heartache, relationships and the world.
Jaggery, June 20: The band (jaggery.org) borrows pages out of the books of both Kate Bush and Alice Coltrane, suggesting a classical, organic, avant-jazz-oriented Cocteau Twins. This show will be filmed.
Yoshi Takemasa and IM Rhythm, June 27: NYC-based hand percussionist Takemasa (yoshiconga.com) brings his group IM Rhythm, honoring the adventurous music of Jamaican saxophonist and composer Cedric IM Brooks.
All shows starts at 9 p.m. While there is no cover charge, the Winery encourages a $10 per person gratuity for the artists.
