The Poli Club of Waterbury opens a jazz series on April 1

WATERBURY – New England Arts & Entertainment opens the Spring 2022 Jazz Series on April 1 at the Palace Theater Poli Club, featuring the Dana Lauren Quintet. The show includes a free bourbon and gin tasting from Mine Hill Distillery in Roxbury.

The concert is the first show in the series, which also includes the Leala Cyr Quartet on April 29, The Voice contestant Melinda Rodriguez on May 20, and Manhattan Vibes on June 3.

According to a statement, Dana Lauren is an award-winning and critically acclaimed singer and songwriter. She has toured and recorded with legendary Grammy Award-winning trumpeter Arturo Sandoval, singing at some of the country’s most celebrated jazz venues.

His 2008 album “Stairway to the Stars”, produced by Sandoval, reached the top of the jazz charts and received rave reviews from some of the country’s most prestigious jazz publications. His second album released in 2010 “It’s You or No One”, was self-produced and features Christian McBride on bass. That same year, she was selected as a semi-finalist in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocal Competition.

“While most young men and women struggle to find what they want in life, singer Dana Lauren was lucky to know that from the start. The jazz singer says she can’t remember not a moment when she wasn’t singing,” according to the statement. “The first thing one notices when listening to the sweet sounds that Lauren imparts with her music is how worldly the lyrics sound coming from. such a young voice. She explains that her conviction and passion for words has to do with attitude more than anything else.

“I’ve always been sure of myself when it comes to my confidence,” Lauren said. “I like stepping out of my comfort zone and enjoying letting my guard down.”

Sessions are at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.; seating is general admission and a series of tickets for all shows are available with reserved seating.
