Cotton Club dates!

For those who are awaiting the news, here it is... the Cotton Club is open for business, and so are we!

Please check Upcoming Performances on the right column of the blog, I've updated some dates for our Cotton Club shows for the remainder of June, and I'll be updating July's schedule shortly.

Here are some brief info on both residents bands playing at the Club:

Julian Chan Quartet (JC4tet):

Julian Chan - saxophones
Joseph Arnesto - double bass
Jason Geh - piano
John Thomas - drums

Formed for the first time in for the Cotton Club, we'll be playing a lot in the vein of jazz and improvisation, a lot of bebop, hardbop, jazz repertoire ranging from the 40s thru to the 60s, and even some contemporary jazz compositions. For the moment, there will be a guest vocalist performing with the JC4tet from night to night.

Jazzy Chillers:

Clement Siao - piano
Benjamin Lee - saxophones
Jimmy Tan - drums
Jeanie Lee - vocals

Enjoy lighter, chill-out jazz repertoire from this dynamic group, also formed for the first time for Cotton Club, which features the beautiful Jeanie on voice. With bandleader Clement Siao on piano, expect to hear a lot of different vocal jazz standards arrangements, as well as different instrumental jazz tunes, both old and contemporary.

The Cotton Club is located at G1, Maju Junction Shopping Complex, Jln Tunku Abdul Rahman. It has a restaurant on the ground floor, with a staircase leading up to the 1st floor section, where the bar, lounge, and the jazz band is located. Music starts on 9:45pm on weekdays and 10:15pm for weekends (Friday and Saturday). The band plays for three 45-minute sets.

More info coming along, so stay tuned.
