With Brendan commanding the mike and Lucite piano, Komakozie on the beatbox, and a rotating cast of upright bassists, trumpeters, saxophonists, and tap dancers, the tunes sound like something heard on the streets of 1920s Harlem. The idea for me is to play music that I would like to listen to, OHara explains. Were Jerry Lee Lewis meets A Tribe Called Quest, at times Bob Dylan meets the Beastie Boys; Slick Rick and Billy Joel. Translation: Theyre dope. Visit www.brendanohara.org for a taste and a schedule of upcoming performances. The show takes place from 10 p.m. to midnight.
Tuesdays, 10 p.m. Starts: Dec. 23. Continues through March 31, 2008
