Do you remember dancing to The Moxie Whitney Orchestra in the Canadian Grill? To Dick Maloney in Villa Lucia? Fine dining and dancing to live music is back in Ottawa at La Piazza Ristorante in Manotick. Every Saturday from 7 to 10 pm you can dance to the music of Ottawa’s top jazz vocalists accompanied by Ottawa’s finest jazz instrumentalists. Each week features a different vocalist, announced on La Piazza’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/LaPiazzaCourtyardLounge). There are lots of romantic ballads, Brazilian bossa novas, and uptempo swing tunes.
La Piazza’s featured vocalist on Saturday February 17th –
Betty Ann Bryanton
Betty Ann has been singing since she was a child. For the past ten years, she has been a successful band leader in the Ottawa area, having had several sold-out jazz shows, and having been invited to and performing at both the Merrickville and Buckingham jazz festivals. Her deeply emotive voice and meaningful interpetations of the stories told through jazz standards easily win the hearts of her audience. Pierre Monfils on guitar and Matt Dawber on sax, both longtime music teachers and performing musicians, round out this lovely trio. Come be romanced!
