JAZZ NIGHT with EMILY FENNELL!

June 9, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$5

Special Guest – EMILY FENNELL aka MISS EMILY

”An angelic voice with just a hint of sultry devilishness. This gal is a  rocket ready to take-off!”

– Rob Baker (The Tragically Hip)

“Miss Emily, who has the best pipes we have ever heard, in an unsigned artist!”

– Gene Simmons-KISS-Simmons/Universal Records

In the words of Rob Baker (The Tragically Hip) “Miss Emily is a truly gifted singer. Her voice is rich and soulful – she can slip from sweet and seductive to commanding and fierce and back again in the tradition of the finest blues and soul singers. And like those great and rare legendary talents she is well seasoned in the art of performance having paid more than her fair share of dues. Emily maintains a very high level of musicianship and integrity in everything she does.”

In 2011 Kingston, ON based ‘Miss Emily’ received accolades from Gene Simmons (KISS) & Matt Wells (MuchMoreMusic) and played to 25,000 people alongside The Tragically Hip, Sam Roberts Band & The Trews in Bobcaygeon, ON. 2012 included some work on an upcoming album with producing contributions by The Tragically Hip’s Gord Sinclair, a great summer festival season and a spot on Canadian Pacific’s cross-country touring Holiday Train with Doc Walker.

After a year of re-organizing, Emily has released her fourth original full-length album ‘Rise’, featuring contributions by The Hip’s Gord Sinclair and Rob Baker, Chris Brown of Bourbon Tabernacle Choir and Eric Schenkman of Spin Doctors. ‘Rise’ is the first full-length album under the ‘Miss Emily’ moniker.

Miss Emily performs in front of a full rock band or in a down-scaled, more intimate sounding duo featuring band leader Chris Koster, depending on the event. Miss Emily has played a range of venues from large festivals to small theatres in both Canada and the United States.

Emily spends as much time as possible using her talents to fundraise for local, provincial and national charities, as well as mentoring and encouraging young artists to pursue their dreams.

Emily’s full-length albums to date include: Miss Emily – ‘Rise’ (2014), Emily Fennell Band – ‘Red’ (2009), Sugarplum – ‘Miss Twisted’ (2009) and Emily Fennell – ‘Green’ (2004).

JAZZ NIGHT with SPENCER EVANS TRIO The Cove Inn hosts one of the most original and memorable Live Music Experiences you’ll have! The Popular Spencer Evans Trio with Rob Radford on drums, Seamus Cowan on bass and Spencer Evans on piano, clarinet and vocals has proven a formidable three performing all styles of music to huge crowds of all ages. The party has been going for over 19 years now! Join us for dinner too… The Trio plays select dates throughout the fall until the spring and EVERY THURSDAY from late spring to Thanksgiving Long Weekend. Call The Cove 1.888.COVE.INN to make reservations and confirm dates. SPENCER EVANS was born in Picton, grew up around the Quinte area, and graduated from B.C.I. Spencer plays piano, clarinet, accordion, sings, dances, prances and has been a professional musician for the past 15 years. He has played Bermuda to Bosnia, New Orleans to the North Pole, and has recorded and toured with The Cowboy Junkies, Sarah Harmer and Pat Temple, and has performed with Jeff Healey, Dan Aykroyd, Willie P. Bennett, Jack Mahieu, Alex Pangman, Maria Muldaur, and Toronto’s Swing Gang, among countless others. Spencer has appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CBC Radio’s The Vinyl Café with Stuart McLean, MUCHmusic and CMT. A resident of Kingston for several years, Spencer keeps busy playing with numerous local bands such as Bloom, Pico de Gallo, Ghetto Xpress, The River Cats and various jazzy combos. SEAMUS COWAN plays the low bass and sings the high notes…Kind of strange but it works. Has played all kinds of music in his career so he fits right in. ROB RADFORD has a solid synergy with the boys. His drumming is some of the best around and his ferocity is difficult to tame, behind the kit that is. Together, the trio are a powerful combination. Enjoy them weekly in the summer months! JAZZ NIGHT will continue EVERY THURSDAY from May.19-Oct.6! 9-11pm $5 Reservations recommended!!!
