New Shades of Blue at Underground Lounge in Belfast

Event has passed

    BELFAST — New Shades of Blue bring their finger-snapping, retro-jazz sensibility to the Underground Lounge on Thursday, March 16.

    Singer Juliane Gardner has performed in the folk world, writing two original albums and sharing the stage with Chris Smither and Noel Paul Stookey.

    “But her voice is pure jazz—perfectly suited to the old-time sound of New Shades of Blue, smooth and peppy, with a playful innocence,” said the Underground Lounge, in a news release. “Gardner’s husband, Christopher Poulin, offers masterful guitar licks and crisp rhythmic punctuation to the proceedings, drawing on influences which include Wes Montgomery, BB King, and classical. Bassist Ezra Rugg is an in-demand multi-instrumentalist who has played with numerous Midcoast bands including Shirt Tail Kin, the David Clarke Trio, and the Sauternes. Together, New Shades of Blue evokes a sunny nostalgia, warm and charming.”

    They’ll perform at the Underground Lounge on Thursday, March 16. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; the show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10, cash only at the door.

    The Underground Lounge is located in the basement of the Belfast Maskers Theatre, at 17 Court Street, offering shows on Thursday evenings twice a month.

    “The space has become a favorite of performers and audiences alike, known for its coffeehouse vibe (including couches) and a kitchen serving drinks and homemade treats,” said the release.
