Harlem Blues Project - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
December 13, 2011 - New York

Harlem Blues Project specializes in soulful New York blues with a twist! The band features blues masters Jerry Dugger, Junior Mack, Saron Crenshaw, and Barry Harrison. Jerry Dugger, the bassist, is a Harlem native. A 27-year veteran of the New York City blues scene, he is famous for making his audience part of his act. Foot stomping and audience participation are a regular part of his performance, because he wants the audience to have the best blues experience possible. He has worked with The Holmes Brothers, James Cotton, Eddie Kirkland, Little Milton, and Hubert Sumlin. Guitarist and singer Junior Mack is a New Jersey native. Self-taught, he has been playing guitar since the age of nine. Influenced by Duane Allman, Dickey Betts, Jan Akkerman, and Wes Montgomery, he deftly displays these influences, although the foundation of his playing lies in the soulfulness of gospel and blues. Vocally, his influences are all gospel: The Soul Stirrers with Sam Cooke and Paul Foster, and The Sensational Nightingales with Reverend Julius Cheeks; later on, he discovered Gregg Allman as well. An opportunity to play for the late Pops Staples and the encouraging reaction from both Pops and Mavis Staples was the first in a chain of events that drove Mack to present his interpretation of the blues to a wider audience. He has sat in or worked with The Allman Brothers Band, Derek Trucks, Robert Randolph, Dickey Betts, and Honeyboy Edwards. He has also recorded an excellent CD, Live Adventures. Saron Crenshaw's love is the blues, and he has been inspired by some of the greatest singers and players of all time - B.B. King, Albert King, Albert Collins, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Buddy Guy, to name a few. He plays a Gibson "Lucille" model guitar signed by B.B. King himself. A powerful entertainer, he is never afraid to take his performance straight into the audience. Drummer Barry Harrison spent five and a half years with the legendary Johnny Copeland, and after his passing, Harrison went on to spend six years working with his daughter, Shemekia Copeland. He has also worked with Sonny Rhodes, Eddie Kirkland, Phil Guy, and Lonnie Shields.

'Seven In One Blow,' or 'The Brave Little Kid' - Axis Theatre
Through December 18, 2011 - West Village

Axis Theatre Company presents the 10th anniversary production of its beloved family holiday show, adapted from the classic fairytale by The Brothers Grimm. This is the story of a child living in the city who kills seven flies with a single swat and makes a belt emblazoned with "Seven in One Blow" to commemorate the event. The Kid travels through the snow and meets numerous colorful characters along the way, including the Scarlet Pimpernel, a Pea, December, a Witch, an Ogre, and a Princess. Most people think this belt refers to seven people and assign the Kid all kinds of difficult tasks based on this faulty presumption. Over the course of the take, invaluable lessons are learned: an Ogre finds that you don't always have to show how strong you are to be strong; a girl realizes that when you tease someone, you may be hurting a person who is just like you; and a scary monster understands that because she is loved, she may not be so scary after all. In the end, after a surprise twist, the Kid discovers that a parent's love and care has no limits.
