Live jazz at Rock City Café
Rockland — On Friday, Nov. 16, Rock City Café, 316 Main St., will become the Velvet Lounge with live jazz styling’s by 14 Strings from 5 to 7 p.m. As usual, there is no cover charge; however, tipping the musicians is highly encouraged.
The 14 Strings jazz trio features Jon Luoma on viola, Harry Richter on guitar and Doreen Conboy on bass, playing jazz standards, original compositions and tunes with Latin and European flavor. The trio gets their unique sound from the unusual combination of viola, bass and guitar. Innovative arrangements and provocative rhythms give contemporary appeal to jazz standards, soulful ballads, Latin bossas and sambas, plus a twist of Django Reinhardt and Svend Assmussen. To round out the sets, Luoma adds original compositions.
