Spring Fling! Shelley Doty X-tet with special guests Rosin Coven at Ivy Room
Shelley Doty is an East Bay gem. Not only does she rule on both acoustic and electric guitar, she also sings with fluid grace and writes songs filled with swagger, tenderness, and joy. “I play rock with a jazz attitude,” Shelley Doty said in an interview in the San Francisco Chronicle. “I'm not interested in playing the same song the same way for 18 years. When I write a song, I think of it as its own universe.” Guitar Player Magazine praises her “smoky, soulful voice” and salutes her guitar work for its “energy, funk, and surprise.”
Born in a berkeley back yard and baked in the blistering desert, Rosin Coven, founders of the Edwardian Ball, present a bewitching blend of cabaret, big band, jazz, and classically tinged rock. This evening's pared down version of the world's premiere Pagan Lounge Ensemble will include strings, brass, vocals and drums to enchant with its unique chamber cabaret style.
