Formed in 1991, the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble is a funk & street beat improvisational brass band performing a unique blend of original and traditional music. Leader Ken Field is a longtime member of the acclaimed modern music ensemble Birdsongs of the Mesozoic, and an active composer and performer. There is a $20 cover.

TORONTO: HALLOWEEN WITH THE LAURA HUBERT BAND

Laura Hubert and her band will perform at THE JAZZ BISTRO (251 Victoria Street, Toronto, ONT, CA - 416-363-5299) on Halloween, Friday, October 31st at 9:00 pm. She's not exactly a jazz diva, nor a straight blues artist, nor just a pop or country singer. She's a bit of all these, but Laura prefers to think of herself as a singer of "old songs." That term perfectly describes the eclectic repertoire of standards, blues and western swing that she delivers with such passion and style. Her affinity for this music developed over a lifetime of listening. Growing up in Toronto, Laura performed Gilbert and Sullivan operettas in high school while listening to Billie Holiday, Linda Ronstadt and Dolly Parton at home. At the University of Toronto, where she studied psychology and sociology, Laura fell hard for theatre, acting and singing in numerous productions. That's where she also began experimenting with the jazz repertoire, working up some standards with a young piano player named Peter Hill. For this show she is also joined by Brendan Davis - bass, Nick Fraser - drums, Bob Brough - tenor saxophone, and Chris Gale - baritone saxophone. There is a $15 cover.

NYC: SHEPLEY METCALF - "DON'T BOTHER TO KNOCK" CD RELEASE

Vocalist Shepley Metcalf is celebrating the release of her third recording, "Don't Bother to Knock," with a series of shows on the east coast this Fall. New Yorkers can catch Metcalf at the THE METROPOLITAN ROOM (34 West 22nd Street, NYC - 212-206-0440) for one show on Saturday, November 1st at 7:00 pm, singing music from the CD along with some other lesser-known gems from the Great American Songbook. Musical partner, Ron Roy, will be at the piano. "Don't Bother to Knock" is a dream project for Metcalf: a collection of songs from the 1930's to 50's with high charm factor that have been rarely recorded since their debut. Her love of song sleuthing means months and sometimes years of searching out and listening to unique music defined by humor, lovely melodies and clever lyrics. This singularity is a modus operandi that has served Metcalf well on her previous recordings and many performances, where fans can always count on hearing a carefully selected set no one else is performing on any bandstand, anywhere. For "Don't Bother to Knock" she found inspiration in artists of yore like Annette Hanshaw, Mildred Bailey and Anita O'Day and writers including Johnny Burke (with Harold Spina, "You're Not the Only Oyster in the Stew), Dorothy Fields (with Burton Lane, "Have Feet, Will Dance") and Richard Whiting (with George Marion Jr., "My Future Just Passed"). There is a $20 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

NYC: SHEPLEY METCALF - "DON'T BOTHER TO KNOCK" CD RELEASE

Vocalist Shepley Metcalf is celebrating the release of her third recording, "Don't Bother to Knock," with a series of shows on the east coast this Fall. New Yorkers can catch Metcalf at the THE METROPOLITAN ROOM (34 West 22nd Street, NYC - 212-206-0440) for one show on Saturday, November 1st at 7:00 pm, singing music from the CD along with some other lesser-known gems from the Great American Songbook. Musical partner, Ron Roy, will be at the piano. "Don't Bother to Knock" is a dream project for Metcalf: a collection of songs from the 1930's to 50's with high charm factor that have been rarely recorded since their debut. Her love of song sleuthing means months and sometimes years of searching out and listening to unique music defined by humor, lovely melodies and clever lyrics. This singularity is a modus operandi that has served Metcalf well on her previous recordings and many performances, where fans can always count on hearing a carefully selected set no one else is performing on any bandstand, anywhere. For "Don't Bother to Knock" she found inspiration in artists of yore like Annette Hanshaw, Mildred Bailey and Anita O'Day and writers including Johnny Burke (with Harold Spina, "You're Not the Only Oyster in the Stew), Dorothy Fields (with Burton Lane, "Have Feet, Will Dance") and Richard Whiting (with George Marion Jr., "My Future Just Passed"). There is a $20 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

By his teen years, his musical consciousness had been solidified by the likes of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Cal Tjader, Mongo Santamaria, Wilson Pickett and James Brown. Along the way, he taught himself to play guitar, flute, drums and timbales, but eventually settled on the congas. There is a $20-$28 cover.
