Wednesday March 11. Bel Air. Call it nepotism if you like for iRoM to be plugging James De Frances’ gig at Herb Alpert’s Vibrato Grill Jazz…etc. tomorrow night.
Yes, he’s a frequent and thoughtful reviewer here, but – fine singer that he is – he’s also an impressive performer in his own right, who deserves attention for his own skills. And this is a rare opportunity to hear him in action, in a setting that provides an appropriate musical backdrop.
James calls it his Suit and Tie Release Party, and it will feature a live performance of “Suit and Tie,” the lead single off his debut album Pop Swings. Limited edition autographed CD’s will be available for purchase.
The pre-show begins at 6:30 p.m. with red carpet and photo opps. Expect a celebrity crowd. Call (310) 474-9400 for reservations.
Don’t miss this one.
