The newly refurbished, historical MINTON’S is hosting the JC Hopkins Biggish Band featuring Queen Esther for a residency of Wednesday gigs starting on May 7th. Grammy nominated JC Hopkins and his ensemble of pedigreed jazz musicians swing hard and passionately through original material penned by Hopkins but also feature Bop tunes initially crafted at Minton’s back in the day by Thelonious Monk, Bird and Diz, expanded for a semi-big jazz conglomeration. Queen Esther, with sass and finesse fronts the band, with her evocative voice and massive range, interpreting new material as well as covering lesser-known songs from Billie Holiday’s canon. Each night is expected to be a real happening.
There is a $ 10.00 music charge at the bar and $20.00 at tables. Reservations for tables are required and are for dinner only. Bar seating is available on a first come first serve basis. There is a one drink minimum at the bar. Jackets are required for men. For reservations please call 212.243.2222.
