Miss Tess to perform at Machiavelli's

January 16, 2012

Another great show coming up this Thursday, January 19th — 7pm — Miss Tess and The Bon Ton Parade are back. Tickets are $20 for Buffet and the show. Pork Tenderloin and Potatoes Anna featured on buffet along with signature pizzas and finger foods. ALSO B&T Distributing will be holding a bourbon tasting that night to warm the cheeks. Miss Tess is a New York City based songwriter and performing musician, who tours regularly with her band, as "Miss Tess & The Bon Ton Parade". In addition to Tess's tasty licks and prowess on her 1940s archtop guitar, the current lineup includes Will Graefe on guitar, Danny Weller on upright bass, and Matt Meyer on drums. Inspired by styles of vintage swing, blues, country, and folk, Miss Tess draws comparisons to artists such as Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, Peggy Lee, and Chuck Berry, but maintains a style all of her own. "She’s a musical chameleon, recalling at various moments Tom Waits’ barfly humor, the cabaret-rock of Beirut, or even the wink-wink wit of early Bette Midler." – Holly Hughes, Blog Critics.
