This Friday night, March 13, East End musician and Dan’s Papers Best of the Best Hall of Famer Nancy Atlas is bringing one of the most popular guest stars from last year back to Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor when she presents R&B and funk singer/pianist Danny Kean.
Kean will bring his mix of soul, blues, funk and gospel keyboards and vocals to the March 13 show. Kean admits he loves playing with Nancy and her band. “They can grab onto anything really quick,” he says. Atlas’s band loves him right back, and the fans all benefit from their warm interaction.
Kean has an album coming out, so he might break out some new material as well as more familiar tunes. There will also be some carefully considered covers, tunes that Kean would rather not reveal (“I like to surprise people,” he says), but he does mention that he’s been doing some personalized takes on the Beatles, hint, hint. No matter what, the audience can be sure they’ll get a night filled with soulful sounds and singing when Kean comes to town.
After the show, come by Muse in the Harbor at 16 Main Street and say hello to all the musicians.
Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets are $20. Visit baystreet.org or call the box office at 631-725-9500.
