Equally fluent in Jazz, Classical and Latin idioms, his fluid versatility sets him apart. This 4 time Latin Grammy, 1 time American Grammy winner has worked with Ricky Martin, Tito Puente, Herbie Hancock, Gloria Estefan, Dave Mathews, New World Symphony Orchestras, among many others. Tickets are $35 General Admission; $55 Premium and $75 VIP. February 8th |7:30 p.m. | DREAMS – The Fleetwood Mac Experience An amazing Tribute to an amazing band…Fleetwood Mac. Fleetwood Mac led a generation of classic rock lovers on an amazing mystical musical journey spanning almost five decades. With the onset of The Fleetwood Mac “On With The Show Tour” in 2014 with Christine McVie rejoining the band after decades, the emergence of an epic Fleetwood Mac Tribute like “Dreams The Fleetwood Mac Tribute” is even more poignant. This musical tribute captures the vibe, the sound, and spirit of an epic rock band that is still making its mark today. Tickets are $50 General Admission. February 15 | 7:30 p.m. | ANTONIA BENNETT JAZZIZ Nightlife welcomes Antonia Bennett, daughter of legendary singer Tony Bennett, to the stage in celebration of the release of her debut CD, “Embrace Me.” Ms. Bennett has been performing alongside her father since she could walk and talk. Some of her early performances were shared with legendary American icons such as Rosemary Clooney, Count Basie, Regis Philbin, Don Rickles, and growing up with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Gene Kelly. It was inevitable that she would inherit a genuine passion for the arts. Tickets are $25 General Admission; $40 Premium and $55 VIP. February 19 | 7:30 p.m. | RUBEN STUDDARD Ruben Studdard rose to fame as winner of the second season of American Idol and received a Grammy Award nomination in December 2003 for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for “Superstar.” Partway through the American Idol competition guest judge Gladys Knight christened the corpulent crooner Ruben Studdard a “velvet teddy bear,” a nod to his smooth, Luther Vandross-styled voice and his Barry White-sized girth. The nickname stuck, since it captured the persona of the native of Birmingham, Alabama. In the years following Idol, Studdard has released five studio albums, including his platinum-selling debut, “Soulful” and the top-selling gospel follow-up, “I Need an Angel.” Tickets are $45 General Admission; $65 Premium and $95 VIP. February 24 & 25 | 7:30 p.m. | KEIKO MATSUI In the words of Duke Ellington, Keiko Matsui is “beyond category.” The courageous, spiritually-driven and consummate pianist/ composer, who enjoyed the distinction of being an invited guest and performer at the second International Jazz Day, sponsored by UNESCO and held in Istanbul transcends boundary. Her unique melting pot of musical influences have garnered her a devout international following. Keiko Matsui celebrated the 25th Anniversary of her US recording career with her latest release Soul Quest. “This music energizes me and I am overwhelmed with emotion when I listen to it. I hope people will allow themselves to go inside the music and become a part of my journey,” says the stunning, profound pianist and world citizen who was the first Japanese musician to ever top the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Charts. Tickets are $35 General Admission; $55 Premium and $75 VIP. March 3 & 4 at 7:30 p.m. | MELISSA MANCHESTER Melissa Manchester is best known for her Grammy Award-winning music.
