Help ON THE SUN Make Our Fist Record!

screenshot_578My 8 piece soul-funk band ON THE SUN is trying to raise 15K to make our very first record, press it to vinyl, and take it on the road! We need your help. Making a record is expensive: we need to pay for studio time, mixing/mastering of the record, manufacturing costs, and the van rental to go on tour! Every donation counts – no matter how small.

To learn more, get all the details, and watch our HILARIOUS Kickstarter video, CLICK HERE. We also have tons of great incentives. In exchange for your donation, you can get a pre-order of our album (either digitally, on vinyl, or both), an ON THE SUN T-shirt, silk-screen poster, tote bag, haiku, order of home-made cookies, and lots more! Check out the whole scoop here. Please, we need your help!

DIVA Jazz Orchestra at Dizzy’s This Fall!

diva-dizzysThe DIVA Jazz Orchestra led by Sherrie Maricle will be returning to Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola this fall for three consecutive nights. It’s been awhile since we’ve performed at our favorite jazz club in NYC – so we’re very excited! We’ll be performing sets at 7:30 and 9:30 PM on October 17th, 18th, and 19th with a guest vocalist to be announced.

The album cover you see at left is from when we recorded an album LIVE at Dizzy’s club in 2008. Says Nat Hentoff of this recording: “In this live set – at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at New York’s Jazz at Lincoln Center – the spirited interplay between the sections and the immediately distinctive soloists compel me to, as I used to years ago, shout aloud in pleasure.”
