The New Year is not only a time for new promises and regimens, but also for new forms of entertainment. If you’re not already a Jazz, Soul and R &B, Dahday thinks you should become one. In fact , we want you to become a patron of this genre so bad that we’ve created a cool list of low-key events we think you should check out.
Read away! We have a hunch that you’ll be coming back to Dahday for future recommendations.
On News Years Eve, the 3 time Grammy award winning artist, Jill Scott will be joined by Luke James and DJ Premier in a New Years Eve bash. Both an amazing vocalist and talented actress, Jill Scott’s guaranteed soul moving performance will be supplemented by rising star Luke James and the nationally acclaimed DJ Premier, letting concerts attendees to grove their way into 2014.
This Jazz Brunch will be headlined by Joey Morant a dynamic and thrilling brass instrumentalist and vocalist.

In 2003 he received the Harlem Jazz and Music Festival Instrumentalist of the Year award.
We could rant about the 5 time Grammy Award winning and iconic Blind Boys of Alabama. But then we would be overlooking the brilliance of Allen Toussaint’s planned performance, a New Orleans raised composer, arranger, producer, pianist and singer. At that point, Tupelu MS’s son, Paul Thorn would step into the argument for this concert, as he plans to groove the audience with his unique style of blues. Ruthie Foster tops off our argument for this event with her amazing repertoire of music. There! Four reasons to attend this soulful event on January 10th.
Martha Redbone has been recognized for her contemporary Native American rhythms. Her award winning repertoire is a mix of rhythm and blues, and soul music influences, fused with elements of traditional Native American music.
Charles Bradley, a Gainsville, Florida native, is a relic from very talent era of America music. Few today sing with the same level of elegant gruffness and soul as Charles Bradley. Performing with a very talented ensemble of instrumentalists. Simply put, they don’t make ‘em like Charles Bradley. This is one of Dahday’s favorites.
The Harlem Gospel Choir is one of the most famous of its kind in the world. Steeped in heritage and tradition, HGC is a great way to celebrate the life and accomplishments of Dr. Martin Luther King.
English Singer-Songwriter and former Floetry member, Marsha Ambrosius, will be releasing her new album, “Lovers and Friends” at the Sounds of Brazil in West Village.
