Saturday night, Nov. 1, Kate Davis will perform at The Black Rock. Lauded by MTV as one of 2014’s “15 Fresh Females Who Will Rule Pop,” multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Kate Davis has been turning heads in New York’s music scene since 2012. Whether she’s crooning rootsy ballads or plucking bright riffs from her bass, the gutsy singer/songwriter from Portland, Oregon, puts a fresh spin on the standards and brings a sensibility to her own lush tracks.
Vivid, nostalgic melodies materialize out of Kate’s musical arrangements, her songbird voice complimented by a rich rock ‘n’ roll bass-line. She’s been invited to share the stage with such diverse artists as Alison Krauss, Josh Groban, Ben Folds, Sara Bareilles, and Renee Fleming. She’s performed at The Kennedy Center, The Bowery Ballroom, Lincoln Center, and Carnegie Hall.
Kate Davis will perform on Saturday, Nov. 1 at 8 pm. Tickets are available for $22 either at the Black Rock box office or online.
Also at Black Rock this weekend, Fancy Nancy the Musical will be presented at the Black Rock Center for two shows on Saturday, Nov. 1 at 11:00 am and Sunday, Nov. 2 at 3:00 pm.
Fancy Nancy and her friends Bree, Rhonda, Wanda, and Lionel are going to be performing in their very first show, “Deep Sea Dances.” Nancy is positive that she and Bree will be picked to be mermaids. When another girl wins the coveted role of the mermaid, Nancy is stuck playing a dreary, dull tree. This 50-minute show manages to entertain both adults and children. Tickets are $15.
