Live Music
Jackie Greene Americana and roots singer-songwriter Jackie Greene is a jack-of-all-trades, and an artist who can croon over soulful piano ballads as much as he can shred a bluesy guitar solo (like he did as the lead guitarist for The Black Crowes in 2013). A road warrior and musician's musician, Greene's new EP 'The Modern Lives - Vol 2' (out October 2018 on Blue Rose Music) finds him at a new chapter in his life: his first months of fatherhood, time off his relentless touring circuit, and a cross-country move from Brooklyn to his birthplace of Northern California.
Shari Puorto Shari Puorto is an American award-winning Roots/Rock/Blues singer, songwriter and performer originally from Orange, CT currently residing in Los Angeles.  With 6 releases to-date, Shari’s music and show are raw, real, and authentic.
