Jalopy Theatre and School of Music | 315 Columbia Street | Red Hook
Evie Sands comes to Jalopy in Red Hook on Friday, October 13th, 2017.
Evie Sands is a multi-threat artist: emotive blue-eyed soul singer, naturally funky guitarist, indelibly compelling performer, close-the-door sultry songwriter, meticulous professional, intuitive and perceptive producer, bountiful band mate, and a musician’s musician. Amongst pop aficionados and within record collector circles, she is a bona-fide treasure.
No less than Dusty Springfield cited her as a favorite singer. She was widely seen on TV, including The Tonight Show, Hullabaloo, American Bandstand, Shindig, Where The Action Is, Hollywood A Go-Go, Everly Brothers, Glen Campbell, and Johnny Cash shows. In the United Kingdom she is revered as a Northern Soul icon (“Billy Sunshine” and “Picture Me Gone”) whose pulsating vinyl records are sought after and cherished.
Jalopy Theatre and School of Music is a community arts space offering live music, vintage instrument sales and repair, and music instruction for the whole family. The Theatre focuses on roots music from around the globe, with blues, bluegrass, American, Irish, African, Mexican and South American folk music, old country, old time and more!
Geoff and Lynette Wiley opened The Jalopy Theatre in Red Hook, Brooklyn in 2006 in hopes of showcasing traditional roots music and its musicians, while teaching others to appreciate and play the music.
