BOSSA NOVA BEATNIKS


The Bossa Nova Beatniks are a veritable moveable feast of musicians anchored by that appealing guitarist and singer Tom Gould. Tom's intelligent songwriting features such styles as multi-ethnic, infectuous rhythm (New York Town), solo twelve-bar blues (Bad Little Baby) or a languid and dreamlike mood.

The Beatniks' third album Danger Bongo Crossing was recently released to critical acclaim, and is being distributed both here and in Europe. An evening with Huntington's own Beatniks is guaranteed to be unpredictable and lots of fun.

CECILIA KIRTLAND


Singer-songwriter Cecilia Kirtland has been making a splash with her recently released first album on Huntington's SNV Records. In fact, the title cut Small Comfort was chosen to be a selection on the latest LI Voice compilation Jilted.

Cecilia's songs encompass a wide spectrum of emotions from lighthearted-and-hopeful to sultry blues or quiet heartbreak. A veteran of the L.I. music scene, Cecilia has presented her songs as a solo performer and also as the leader of an electric/acoustic band. Her sweet voice, gracious stage demeanor and infectious smile delight her audience. The HARD LUCK CAFÉ is proud to present this engaging performer in our intimate setting.
