Justin Donovan
Feb 2 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Justin Donovan @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
First thing you’ll notice when you hear Justin play is how much sound he covers on his own. Using a technique he has learned from the guitar master Charlie Hunter, Justin plays a guitar with three bass strings and four guitar strings in which he plays bass and guitar simultaneously. With the addition of his soul inspired vocals, he has most parts of the band covered right off the bat. Originally from Denver, Colorado Justin now finds himself home in New Orleans, Louisiana where you can find him playing venues across town. Playing a mix of Soul, Blues and Jazz music, he entertains the crowd in a way that’s special to the Big Easy.

Lynn Drury
Feb 3 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
She picked up the guitar at 26, went at it like a pro, and she’s never stopped working. Her inspiration is her environment and since the mid nineties, that environment has been New Orleans. The transition for the Yazoo City – born Drury was smooth. She says jasmine smells like honeysuckle, and you believe her. Sultry, sweet songs turn funky, and it’s all in the same neighborhood. These days, Lynn herself is part of the scenery. She’s been a regular at French Quarter Fest and New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival for years, and has played just about everywhere in town. – See more at: http://lynndrury.com/home/?page_id=10#sthash.hBxgb3uT.dpuf

Feb 5 @ 8:00 pm
Nayo Jones Experience @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
Nayo Jones hails from a family of musicians; she was destined to be in “the business.” As a child Nayo sang and danced her way through life. She belted out Supreme songs at talent shows in grade school and mimicked Whitney Houston in front of the mirror. Nayo’s father William “Doc” Jones, a Jazz musician and music educator born and raised in Chicago noticed her musical gift & helped nurture her natural ability from the very beginning. Growing up surrounded by classic jazz and Motown hits Nayo answered her calling at an early age. Nayo wows her crowds and gains loyal fans with her sultry voice and her passion for every performance. To name just a few of her credits, Nayo debuted at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in 2012, she’s opened for such greats as Chris Botti, Otis & the Temptations, The Whispers & Lakeside. In addition to performing her own show, currently Nayo performs and tours as a featured vocalist with New Orleans icon, Kermit Ruffins and the Barbeque Swingers. Though a babe in the music industry she already has the savvy of some of the most classic female artists and has proven to be a force to be reckoned with.
