This Month at Lizzie Rose

Sep 13, 2017
Dave Orban

Labor Day has come and gone, but the entertainment at the Lizzie Rose Music Room in Tuckerton plays on. The fall and winter will bring more of the same high-caliber, heavy-hitting national acts, some new and some returning, spanning and blending the genres of blues and jazz, rockabilly, funk and rock ’n’ roll. All shows begin at 7:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Ticket prices range from $20 to $35 (always $5 more at the door) and may be purchased online at lizzierosemusic.com.

The rest of September is packed with goodness, namely Dave Orban and the Mojo Gypsies serving up “rockin’ blues” this Friday night. The band has been sharing its uptempo blues and old-school R&B for 20 years in the Central Jersey and Philadelphia region. “With a repertoire that shines a light on lesser-known but compelling tunes from the pioneers of the blues form, the band looks to impart a contemporary feel to a traditional form, while not departing drastically from the foundational elements of this type of music.”

Violette and La Vie En Rose celebrates the venue’s third anniversary on Friday, Sept. 22, as “the group who started it all.” The band is described as “an elegant, upbeat and versatile experience” – a marriage of American jazz, French chanson, golden-age swing and soulful pop. That show will start at 8.

The a capella doo-wop group A Quiet Storm returns on Saturday, Sept. 23. The vocal harmony group founded in Philadelphia 10 years ago specializes in classic and contemporary R&B and soul.

The fierce and forceful, even “tempestuous,” blues rocker Popa Chubby closes out the month with a sold-out show on Friday, Sept. 29.  —V.F.
