Miss Tess in Concert

When most people think of defiant music, they think of punk rock or outlaw country. Defying genres is hard to pin down when it comes to artistry—unless you’re Miss Tess. She has employed all of her influences (jazz, country, blues and old school rock and roll) and talents, while cleverly taking standard perspectives, like the definition of a love song, to task.

Chicago Farmer in Concert

The son of a small town farming community, Cody Diekhoff logged plenty of highway and stage time under the name Chicago Farmer before settling in the city in 2003. Profoundly inspired by fellow midwesterner John Prine, he’s a working-class folk musician to his core.

Zoë Lewis in Concert

As much known these days for her storytelling as for her songs,  Zoë Lewis’s performances are upbeat and fun, almost circus-like yet poignant and oftentimes political. She plays vintage jazz and world beat grooves on anything from the piano to the spoons.

Cabaret with Amanda McBroom

Amanda McBroom has been called “the greatest cabaret performer of her generation, an urban poet who writes like an angel and has a voice to match,” by the New York Times. She first came to the attention music lovers when Bette Midler’s version of her song “The Rose” hit number one all over the world in 1979. In addition to Midler, her songs have been recorded by a wide variety of artists including Amy Poehler and Jack Black, Barry Manilow, Judy Collins, and dozens of others.

John Gorka in Concert

John Gorka is a world-renowned singer-songwriter who got his start at a neighborhood coffeehouse and musician mecca, Godfrey Daniels, in eastern Pennsylvania in the 1970s. His rich multifaceted songs full of depth, beauty and emotion caught the attention of critics and audiences across the country, as well as in Europe.

Jake Shimabukuro in Concert

While versatility for any musician is impressive, what’s remarkable about Shimabukuro’s transcendent skills is how he explores his seemingly limitless vocabulary – whether it’s jazz, rock, blues, bluegrass, folk or even classical – on perhaps the unlikeliest of instruments: the ‘ukulele.

Vance Gilbert in Concert

Vance Gilbert burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the early 1990s when buzz started spreading in folk clubs about a former multicultural arts teacher who was knocking ‘em dead at open mics. His star has risen steadily since then, and he’s made an indelible mark on the folk and acoustic music scenes with his free spirited performances, powerful lyrics, and pop-friendly melodies.

Tangos to Tarantellas

The Music Room presents Tangos to Tarantellas, an annual children’s welfare fundraiser showcasing the best classical musicians in the Keys. The twist? They’re all under 18 years old.
