Three Sisters Make June Jump!

Banner 2Sisters BannerFollowers of this blog will surely pardon me for taking just a moment to kvell.

My three talented daughters – Maura, Emilia and Eva — each have a big gig coming up this June. And provided you have enough free time and transportation resources, I recommend you make the trifecta.

All of these gigs are just five minutes from anywhere by rocket car.

avatars-000546751557-2hua3w-t500x500First off, there’s Eva B. Ross’ gig at Steve and Bea Rashid’s fabulous Studio5 cabaret in Evanston, Illinois (just north of Chicago) on June 15th. She’ll be mixing jazz standards and her own songs, backed by Steve Rashid on keys, Robert Rashid on drums and Grant Milliken on vibes.

For tickets, go to the Studio5 website.

While in the Chicago area, Eva will also play a set of original tunes at Hungry City on June 14th.

At the same time, Eva’s older sister Emilia Barrosse is playing a gig in Carlsbad, California – yeah, Carlsbad.

52ec6720-6750-11e9-a0f1-cbe0c91e00d0-rimg-w501-h640-gmirEmilia is a standup comedian and TV comedy writer who, along with her partner Julie Roland (a Navy helicopter pilot and a magician who performs at The Magic Castle), launched a popular standup comedy event series called Just Tryna Make Friends.

The next Just Tryna Make Friends event is Saturday, June 15, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 1:00 AM. It’s a PROM SEASON party.

Attendees are encouraged to shine their dancing shoes and pick out their favorite tuxes and dresses for this prom-themed comedy extravaganza, complete with a live DJ spinning the best prom playlist of 2010, reliably-spiked punch — and absolutely no chaperones.

Tickets are first come first served, so get yours now. Carlsbad is lovely this time of year.

cropAt the end of the month Eva and Emilia’s older sister Maura Murphy-Barrosse will be bringing her soulful, bluesy, rocking band, Ms. Maura & The Misters to The Mint in Hollywood on Sunday, June 30 at 7:00 PM.

maxresdefaultMs. Maura & The Misters plays Maura’s original songs and thoroughly groovy arrangements of some classic tunes – all designed to get you out of your seat and onto the dance floor!

The Mint is located at 1136 W 6th St. in Los Angeles.

So, there you go! Your entertainment itinerary for June 2019 is a done deal. Maura, Emilia and Eva will get your summer off to a fabulous, fun start.
