moira smiley & VOCO + Doozy: Winter Night's Journey @ UU Church of Santa Monica
Winter Night's Journey from Country to City:
Exquisite Vocal-Harmony and Vintage Jazz to celebrate the winter season!
Tonight, Moira and the ladies of moira smiley & VOCO bring effervescent life to the sweet harmony, grit & stomp of American and East European folksong, original music, music of Béla Bartók with the vaudevillian wonderment of voices, cello, banjo, accordion and ukelele.
Doozy's songs of Depression-era cheer transport you to timeless themes of winter: the pursuit of warmth (love?), cheer (liquor?), and happiness, which sometime come in the right amounts in the holiday season. Their beloved, longstanding residency at uber-stylish Culver Hotel envelopes you in the earthy beauty of Christie Mellor's voice, surrounded by deep musicianship on accordion, jazz guitar, clarinet, saxophone, and stand-up bass.
