Kat@Tunes2ya Presents is pleased to bring you a brand-new event called “SPILLING THE TEA,” a Nashville Style Evening of Singer-Songwriters in the Round, hosted by Jonathan Tea at Clancy’s in Neptune, NJ.
Kat Falcey from Kat@Tunes2Ya has been part of the New Jersey music scene for several years now. Sticking mostly to the Trenton area, she managed to bring many diverse audiences and performers together at her various events located in the Trenton area and beyond. She has now come up with a great, new idea that brings known performers together with music aficionados a town over from the illustrious Asbury Park. Clancy’s in Neptune has been providing musical entertainment for several years, but this will be the first offering of this type.
A Nashville Style Evening In The Round uniting four singer-songwriters from the local and regional area in a listening friendly, intimate setting, located at Clancy’s Tavern, inside the Dublin Room.
The host each month will be Jonathan Tea, a California-born, Texas-raised, and now NYC/NJ Shore-based artist. Jonathan’s sound blends strong, earthy vocals with well-crafted songs to create music that is familiar by inviting the crowd into his story and rewarding careful listeners with smart lyrics and a mature sense of phrasing and groove.
Kat tells me, “Nashville grew from a foundation built on music. In an intimate setting, where you can experience the unique, ‘in-the-round,’ a format created at the Bluebird Café where three or four songwriters sit in a circle, performing their songs and talking about the inspirations behind their music and each song. The audience is given a unique opportunity to hear original material from different points of view in a casual, comfortable environment. As a listening room, silence is always requested during a performance.”
Here’s a little bit of information about the upcoming artists that will be performing at Clancy’s and The Dublin room this Thursday on July 26.
