Fridays @ Vibrato
An evening of classic jazz vocals
Shows: 6:30 and 9:00pm // There will be a $20 cover for the late show.
Fridays @ Vibrato is the centerpiece of the Vibrato supper club experience. We present a carefully curated evening in which customers enjoy five-star American cuisine alongside classic jazz. We handpick the finest instrumentalists and vocalists to create a celebration of a era when Sunset Strip rooms like the Ciro’s, The Mocambo, and Café Trocadero were the epitome of hip Hollywood elegance and nightlife.
Featured Artist: Nutty
Nutty brings their Jetsetter Jazz to Beverly Glen, weaving classic rock songs with straight-ahead, big band, Latin, lounge and film/TV themes to create ingenious re-arrangements that swing hard and boggle the mind. Irreverent humor, sass and spontaneity make their shows engaging and fun, and the dark suits, skinny ties and pocket squares enhance their retro presentation. We’re on a mission to make jazz fun and more palatable to those who don’t really embrace it, while demonstrating our affection for the jazz classics to the purists.
Don Heckman of the LA Times calls Nutty “A one-of-a-kind band…with a swinging, old school Vegas swagger,” James Nadal from All About Jazz dubs it “A cunning approach with immediate appeal,” and LA Jazz Scene’s Scott Yanow says “The music is as memorable as it is unique.”
Featuring swank frontman Sonny Moon and skin-tight players from the LA area, Nutty takes you on a strange trip inside a musical time machine, leaving rock and jazz fans collectively demystifying the songs in its wake.
