Charleston Jazz and Dockery’s will host their third Dinner + Show concert on August 23rd at the Dockery’s Restaurant and Listening Room on Daniel Island. The performance will feature two exciting young vocal stars, Robbie Madison and Kanika Moore, as they perform "The Art of Vocalese" to include classics by Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Kurt Elling and vocal powerhouse trio Lambert, Hendricks and Ross.
Madison is a Charleston native who studied voice at the Charleston School of the Arts and honed his craft under the tutelage of jazz master Skipp Pearson. Moore, from Columbia, performs her sultry, swinging style throughout the Southeast and recently returned from a successful concert tour in Europe.
The two vocalists will be accompanied by three talented Charleston musicians: Jonathan Lovett (Piano), Alex Kellner (Bass), and Ron Wiltrout (Drums).
“Our first two events were sold out,” said Mary Beth Natarajan, Executive Director at Charleston Jazz. “It’s very encouraging to see our jazz community coming out in full force for dinner and a show at Dockery’s. As a result of this success, we’ve decided to continue the momentum with a Fall Series in September, October and November.”
The United Community Bank is the sponsor for this event. Proceeds from the sponsorship provide tuition assistance to young jazz artists at the Charleston Jazz Academy.
Tickets are $65 with tax and gratuity included. The ticket includes a three-course prix fixe menu and entry into the show. Dinner reservations must be made between 5 pm and 6:45 pm in the Listening Room before the 8 pm show. All ticket holders seated before 6 pm will receive a complimentary beer or glass of wine from Dockery’s. Tickets can be purchased at charlestonjazz.com.
Dockery’s is located at 880 Island Park Drive.
