Greg Rahn in the Empress Lounge
. Empress Lounge , Vallejo [Ages 21+]
Greg Rahn's Rent Party celebrates his debut album and you're invited! Join us for a night of music and celebration on Thursday, November 4th at the Empress Lounge. Greg is an American pianist whose compositions are dripping with honky-tonk, jazz, blues and blazing boogie-woogie influences from New Orleans pianists like Professor Longhair, Pete Johnson, and Dr John.
His debut album Rent Party is inspired by the rent parties that were common in urban American cities in the 1920s and 30s, where renters would invite guests over a few days before rent was due, charge 25¢ for admission and have live musicians perform, serve food and drink, and celebrate. Greg will be joined by Steve Evans on bass (performed with Etta James, Bo Diddley, Maria Muldaur) and Kevin Hayes on drums (performed with Robert Cray, John Lee Hooker, BB King).
