Vocalist Michelle DuVall, guitarist Doug Brown, and bassist Nick Moran bring toe-tapping, finger-clicking, eye-popping jazz classics from the 30s and 40s to life on every stage they grace.
While they frequently take to the road to deliver the big band sound at dance concerts and ballrooms around the Midwest, Madison is lucky to have the Michelle DuVall & Doug Brown Trio calling this home.
Audiences in and around Madison have recently caught up with their swing sound at the Overture Center, in residence on the patio at Mickey’s Tavern on Williamson Street typically on the second and fourth Thursday of the month, and at Alchemy on Atwood Avenue, where the next performances is on August 28, 2013.
Those in the know look for Michelle DuVall & Doug Brown Trio free public performances, at the August “Jazz at Five” free outdoor concert series and at Oakwood Village Theater on Mineral Point Road, where upcoming shows are on September 20 and December 6, 2013. Come to Madison in June, and you’ll find them pleasing the crowd at the Lake Mendota waterfront. It’s a two-day event where the full eight-piece band called “Get Down, Mr Cat!” shows off their stuff at the annual Isthmus Jazz Fest, celebrating its 24th year in 2014.
Jazz lovers can count on hearing some favorite tunes from the repertoire, including two George and Ira Gershwin hits, “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” and “Someone To Watch Over Me,” plus an all-time great from Ella Fitzgerald and many others, “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love, Baby.”
