Dave Damiani & The No Vacancy Orchestra welcomed a very special guest to its residency at Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club on Thursday –- the irrepressible Molly Ringwald, Gen-X “it girl” and all around charming woman.

Singing jazz and big band standards, Dave and Molly along with The No Vacancy Orchestra, which included some players from our local Airmen of Note, entertained an attentive crowd. Dave kicked things off with early songs like “Nice ‘n’ Easy” by Frank Sinatra, looking and sounding every bit an old-fashioned crooner. (Waxing nostalgic for things “old-fashioned” during a performance of a song of the same name, Dave offered up the suggestion of drinking an Old-Fashioned. Not a bad idea, sir!) Dave captures Sinatra’s “tough but tender” persona well.

Don’t Miss: Molly Ringwald @ Bethesda Blues & Jazz, 7/28/16

Forever in our hearts as a young lady struggling with high school romance thanks to John Hughes, Ms. Molly Ringwald has turned her attention to singing jazz recently. And she’s coming to DC metro to sing jazz at Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club tomorrow night, Thursday July 28.

Molly started singing jazz at a young age, thanks to the influence of her jazz musician father. But she released her debut jazz album, Except Sometimes, in 2013 via Concord Records (which included a tribute to the late Mr. Hughes). Tomorrow, she’s performing a tribute to Nat “King” Cole and his daughter Natalie Cole (particularly timely as Ms. Cole passed away only recently). For her tribute, Molly will join Dave Damiani and the No Vacancy Orchestra, along with two of Natalie Cole’s bandmates, including world-renowned trumpeter Bijon Watson.

As a reader of Parklife DC, you can attend Molly Ringwald’s show tomorrow at half-price! Consult the flyer below and buy your ticket online at this link with the code: BBJMOLLY.
