Jazz. Musicologie presents The Crooners

041213-JazzRiding the wave of a successful debut of the JAZZ JAM series, 721 Scene and Musicologie will be bringing you “The Crooners” on Friday December 6th. At the last concert “LADIES OF SOUL” more than 10 female vocalists performed songs in the “soul” genre. This time around will be the gentlemen’s turn to share their talent. Songs from Luther Van Dross, Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, John Legend, Brian McKnight, Barry White, Nat King Cole, Lou Rawls … will be interpreted by seasoned professionals as well as surprise guest appearances by local personalities both young and old. Golden agers, teenagers and in-betweeners will sing for you.

The second installment of the JAZZ JAM series will feature almost 20 male vocalists from the island. Come out to see professionals from the Gospel, Rock, R&B, Reggae and Soca genres “croon” for you. There will also be guest appearances by singers from the insurance industry, taxi association, prison guard, banking industry, hospital, French side, casino, time-share, tourism bureau, politician, grocery and many more. Basically the St. Maarten community as a whole will be represented. This is a very eclectic group of performers.

In case you are not familiar with the term “Crooners” here’s a brief description: “Crooning” is a style of singing that originated with the invention of the microphone. Before the microphone a singer had to sing out loudly so that the audience could hear him. When the microphone came into play he was able to sing softly and sensually. The microphone would amplify his voice to the audience. Here’s Merriam Webster’s Dictionary definition of “Crooner”
CROON-ER = noun: a male singer who sings slow, romantic songs in a soft, smooth voice”

Besides the many vocalists that will be performing there will be instrumentalists that will be backing up. Don’t forget that this is a “jazz jam session”! If you are a musician and you have the urge to sit in with some of the island’s best musicians, feel free to bring your instrument a get your groove on.

It’s all about sharing the musical vibes! 

Christmas may very well be coming early to St. Maarten as “The Crooners” will be serenading you with song on Friday December 7th at 721 Scene in Simpson Bay from 8:00pm until 12:00am. Tickets can be purchased in advance at both Van Dorp locations, Edris Fabrics & Notions, Bergee’s Electronics and 721 Scene for US$20,- or at the gate for US$25,- See you there!
