City of Squares -Open Mic Feature on Thurs - Feb 17 2011
We are in for some dynamic musicianship on Thursday, Feb 17th, when City of Squares will be our featured act at Open Mic. Except for Jenna, every member of the band either teaches or has taught at Rick's and all are Quality musicians with a capital "Q". Just sayin'...we'd love to add Jenna, too, if she could squeeze us into her schedule, which is pretty unlikely.
Genre: Rock, Pop, Alternative
Jenna Paone......Lead Vocals/Piano
Bill Ferri............Bass/Backing Vocals
Jon Francis........Drums/Backing Vocals
The music of piano-based rock quartet City of Squares (formerly The Briar Rose) combines the ferocity of powerhouses such as Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jackson with the sophisticated sensibility of poets like Sarah McLachlan and Damien Rice. Built upon a crooked tower of blues and soul, their distinctive brand of modern rock comes complete with edgy riffs, sultry undertones, danceable grooves, and attitude to spare.
