Energetic jazz pianist Fred Hughes has worked crowds in all 50 states, plus Canada, Mexico, Japan, and Europe. He brings his show to The Velvet note for two consecutive nights of grooving with the bassist and drummer who round out his trio.
The Velvet Note
No strangers to the stage themselves, the board of advisors at The Velvet Note built the intimate venue as a musician’s dream of exquisite natural acoustics. On its carefully crafted soundstage sits a 1924 Baldwin Model M baby grand piano, which serves an endless lineup of locally and nationally renowned acts. In between applause and using their index fingers as maestro batons, visitors can occupy their hands with food from The Velvet Note’s menu, featuring lobster cobb salad, black mussels in garlic butter, and all manner of classic southern desserts. Run by musicians for musicians, the club creates an up-close-and-personal environment where performers and fans can actually mingle.
