ON THE SUN Makes a Record!

bbff1bfef88633384c494672b0beca55_largeMy 8 piece soul-funk band ON THE SUN is heading into the studio this coming Sunday, Monday and Tuesday July 27-29 to record our very first record. We’re going to be recording 11 amazing tracks at Bunker Studios in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

We have raised almost 20K via Kickstarter for this project by way of 228 backers and we couldn’t be happier! Even though we’ve reached our goal, you still have three days to support and get some awesome swag (think T-shirts, tote bags, silk-screen posters, space tiger dolls, home-baked cookies, haikus and more…).

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.”
