ARTS OFFERINGS FOR THE FIRST WEEKEND IN JANUARY!

KINGS OF CROWNSVILLE:
"WAITING THERE FOR ME" DANCIN' AT THE BELVEDERE"

WHEN: Saturday, January 3, 2015, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
WHERE: Cabaret at Germano's,

Annapolis-based act Kings of Crownsville are a roots Rock band with a New Orleans flavor. The brainchild of New Orleans-raised guitarist/singer/songwriter Steve Johnson, the Kings play a rollicking, entertaining set that stirs Americana, Blues, and Jazz into the mix.

Their signature horn section transports listeners to the streets of the Big Easy, while they also add precise three- and four-part harmonies to their musical gumbo. Think Louis Armstrong meets Steely Dan.

Finalists in the 2012 Baltimore Blues Society competition, the Kings perform regularly throughout the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area.

The Kings of Crownsville features Johnson backed by Ed Justice on trumpet, flugelhorn and vocals; Jim Tavener on trombone, percussion, and vocals; Mike McCormick on keyboards and vocals; David Vermette on bass and vocals; and Rob Creath behind the drums.
