James Jackson, Jr. Brings CLASS to Duane Park, 11/27
He's been called "too little". He's been called "too much". His jeans have definitely been called "too tight". But there's always been an air of class about him. Well, he's back and he's learned a few things this time around. Join James Jackson, Jr. on Tuesday, November 27th at 8PM for a night of new music in this amazingly intimate setting.
He's taking away the band, leaving him with just a piano, tickled by the smooth and sultry Elliot Roth (www.ElliotRothMusic.com). The show will be directed by Gerry Geddes. It's time for the blues, the jazz, …the fire, and the rain. If you didn't know story-telling was an art, you've never seen a single one of James' shows. If you missed him at Joe's Pub or Drom, be sure to check him out at Duane Park for another great evening of gender defying songs, ramblings from the pages of his leather-bound diary and an evening like no other. There will be Living!
The concert will be on Tuesday, November 27, 2012. Dinner seating is at 7PM and the show begins at 8PM.
Duane Park is located at 157 Duane Street (betwen West Broadway and Hudson.) To reserve free tickets, call 212-732-5555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about Duane Park, visit www.DuaneParkNYC.com.<
James Jackson, Jr. was undergraduately reared by lesbians in the New England Bekshires after artistically growing up in Boston under the soul-food tutelage of a deep southern family. The shoes: Birkenstocks. The music: Indigo, Simone, Franklin, & Difranconian. The food: fattening. The relationships: many, lost, and strong.
After being deposited in New York City over a decade ago, the real work began. Dance belts, regional stage yelts, demanding Brits, and a rather unfortunate stop in Branson, Missouri lead to his discovery of artistic truth on prestigious stages like Radio City Music Hall as well as Carnegie Hall. James' razor-sharp wit, unique sense of humor, talent, and on & off stage persona have become an artistic force to be reckoned with as well as a voice people want to hear as he changes the face of the concert stage.
