Society Cafe Concert – Nikki Armstrong with Rave Tesar

Society Cafe Concert Series presents Nikki Armstrong with Rave Tesar on piano Saturday, September 6th The Society Café Concert Series offers a series of acoustic singer/songwriter concerts at the Unitarian Society of Ridgewood. Wine, dessert and coffee, all provided by local vendors, are available before the shows and during intermission. 

We proudly announce the opening concert of our fourth season: Nikki Armstrong in her “Lady Sings the Blues” Show, featuring Rave Tesar on piano. Nikki Armstrong has been compared to a wide variety of singers such as Anita O’Day, Tina Turner, Gladys Knight, Bonnie Raitt and Janis Joplin. Noted for her soulful interpretations of material from standards to rock, she strives to perform every song “in the now and never the same way twice!” She was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in Chicago in 2012. Rave Tesar’s musical background is deep and wide ranging. As a result, his style is a rich blending of classical, jazz and pop music, displaying a strong technique and an adventurous sense of improvisation. “The Rave Tesar Trio’s You Decide is one of the best albums of 2007.” –
