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.

Ms. Maura’s Octoberfest!

As many of you already know, my daughter Maura is a singer of great soulful, bluesy and funky power. She’s been gigging throughout the year with Vaud & The Villains – but she’s back for the spooky holidays with her own band: Ms. Maura & The Misters.

unnamedOn Saturday, October 28th, Mr. Maura & The Misters will kick off the pre-Halloween weekend with an exclusive costume party at quirky Kulak’s Woodshed in North Hollywood.

Ms. Maura suggests that you get your dance on at this all-ages shindig — featuring the sweet sounds of Karlina Covington and the rockin’ rhythms of Ms. Maura and her very groovy band.

8:00 PM – Karlina Covington
9:00 PM – Ms. Maura & The Misters

Space at Kulak’s is limited, so get your tickets today at: https://swingingshindigs.yapsody.com/event/index/158021/masquerade-madness

Ms. Maura would also like you to know that Kulak’s is a booze-free listening room. But there are plenty of nearby establishments where you can get a drink or two before and/or after the show.

See you all there!
