Featured Artist of the Week:
Jazz vocalist and bandleader, actor, comedian, and broadcaster, Wayne Powers!
Join us for a show you will not want to miss… Wayne Powers: Swing Tunes and Saloon Songs will be here at Middle C on Friday, October 22 and Saturday, October 23 at 7pm and 9:15pm! From the Great American Songbook of jazz standards, Powers gives voice to some truly classic, compelling tunes, telling a personal yet universal saga of a love lost and love found.
Music has always been a part of Powers’ show-business career. At 16, he started out as a “boy singer” in New York, was a pioneer disco deejay in the 1970’s, and worked for Henry Mancini as Professional Manager of his music publishing companies. Throughout his career, Powers has been a successful nightclub performer in both comedy and music, always returning to his first love: live performance for a live audience. During the 1990’s he took the West Coast by storm with his jazz band, “Wayne Powers and his Hoi Polloi”.
His long-anticipated latest album, “If Love Were All,” was not only recorded live in the studio, but also right here in Charlotte. From the Great American Songbook of jazz standards, Powers gives voice to some truly classic, compelling tunes, telling a personal yet universal saga of a love lost and love found. Each tune on “If Love Were All” explores with authenticity a different aspect of an eternal story you’re sure to recognize. Powers says, “I was blessed with some top-flight jazz musicians on this live-in-studio recording: Ziad Rabie, Sax. Keith Davis, Piano. Ron Brendle, Acoustic Bass. Al Sergel, Drums.”
