PLG Arts Jazz at the InkWell

Dr Mambo and the ExplosionPLG Arts Jazz at the Ink Well Cafe presents Dr. Mambo and his Explosion Experience  Thursday, March 10, from 8-10:30. The Experience Ensemble covers the bases from Caribbean sounds, reggae, salsa, Latin Jazz to Soukous and High Life as the rhythmic engines that drives the Experience Jazz extravaganza. They are firm believers in a Ghanaian proverb “SANKOFA, wonkyir” which, when translated, means “There’s nothing wrong with going back to your roots.”

You can hear a preview of this great sound at Dr. Mambo’s website. Then come hear it in person—and try some of the great soul food while you’re at it.

PLG Arts Jazz at the Ink Well presents great music the second Thursday of every month. Starting in the warmer weather, you can hear more great music on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month through July. Upcoming shows: April 14—Jeff King. April 28—David Aaron and Short Memory. Aren’t we lucky to have this so close by?

DAYDREAM was conceived in 2006 by Laura Frenzer, PLG Arts President and Rohana Elias-Reyes, a PLG Arts founding member, both Prospect Lefferts Gardens parents and theater professionals.  In an effort to make better use of the Imagination Playground stage, they decided to put on a show, and settled on a short family-friendly version of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”  Over the years twenty-one actors have performed in the show, all but six of whom have resided in PLG or nearby neighborhoods, and seven PLG residents have lent their talents as designers, builders, and seamstresses.

LMA Holiday Party

By Roberta Woelfling
Axion AddictsIt was great to see so many of you at Lefferts Manor Association’s holiday party in December. LMA added a bit of spice to this function by involving our local PLG Arts group to provide some live entertainment. We are grateful to the band Axiom Addicts who played two wonderful sets of music including some holiday numbers. They were so professional and we were lucky that they agreed to play our little party. It helps when the lead singer and keyboard player live in the Manor. Thanks to Rina & Steve Kleege of Maple Street.
