Jimmy Mak’s proudly presents an evening of vintage 1920s and contemporary blues with Blues Music Award Nominee, 7x Muddy Award Winner and internationally renowned recording artist KAREN LOVELY.
Backed by a stellar band featuring some of Portland’s best, this powerhouse vocalist delivers a blistering mix of contemporary & old school blues. Karen Lovely’s standout performances have garnered awards, critical acclaim and standing ovations at festivals and venues throughout the US, Canada and Europe.
Karen Lovely shot onto the blues scene from the Pacific Northwest like Stack O’ Lee’s .44 capturing 2nd Place Band Prize at the 2010 International Blues Challenge followed by 2011 BMA Nominations for BEST CONTEMPORARY BLUES FEMALE ARTIST, BEST CONTEMPORARY BLUES ALBUM and BEST SONG for her sophomore release “Still The Rain.” She began singing the blues professionally in September 2007. Her records “Lucky Girl” and “Still the Rain” have topped the blues and roots charts and gone to #1 on XM Radio’s B.B. King’s Bluesville’s “Pick to Click” list.
Jimmy Mak’s has been hailed by USA Today and Downbeat magazine as one of the top jazz venues in the world.
The evening’s entertainment includes a special prohibition cocktail, raffle items of award winning Organic Nation gin and vodka paired with Karen Lovely CDs with proceeds benefiting United by Music. Flappers, molls, gangsters, sheikhs and shebas – dressing in vintage costume strongly encouraged! This event is being recorded LIVE!
