Celebrating 4 Years of Jazz at Francesca's! Spotlight Guest Jacob Lawson

Wednesday Nov. 8, 2017
6:30-9:30pm

HAPPY HOUR ALL NIGHT TO CELEBRATE 4 YEARS OF JAZZ

And now for something completely different: Violinist Jacob Lawson greatly impressed me the first time I heard him—and was a big hit the first time he was our Spotlight guest. Many in the audience were pleasantly surprised at the successful (yet unconventional) combination of violin and cornet.

As an added treat, Jacob will once again perform on the violin which belonged to my late grandfather (Nick DeCarlis, for whom I am named), who played it in dance bands prior to WWII. It has a particularly dark tone, well suited for jazz. My grandfather was an ardent admirer of famed jazz violinist Joe Venutti, so this will be a special evening as we re-create the sounds of that era.

More about Jacob Lawson: He is a violinist, producer and composer who has recorded with and composed arrangements for best selling recording artists including Guster, Sixpence None-the-Richer, Jars of Clay, Ce Ce Winans, Vienna Teng, and Venus Hum as well as dozens of other major label artists. He has performed with these and other artists including Tim McGraw, Jill Sobule, and Richard Julian throughout the US and Europe and has appeared in broadcast on the BBC, MTV, Vh1, CBS, ABC and NPR. As a composer his clients have included David’s Bridal, Shakespeare and Co., Haus, George St. Playhouse, Cellfish, Jumping Giant, and Spork Productions. He scored the award winning film Fray, and was a contributing composer for the films Boy Wonder, Kartellet and the animated series The Passion of Jimmy.

This will be an exciting night you won’t want to miss. Reservations are highly recommended, especially for the first set. SEATING NEAR THE BAND IS LIMITED – MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS NOW!
