New Year’s Eve Jazz Extravaganza
What better way to bid farewell to 2008 than with friends and family at The Settlers Inn New Year’s Eve jazz extravaganza? Music and handcrafted menus will be featured in the Main Dining Room and the Undercroft.
The atmosphere in the Undercroft will set guests on course for smooth sailing in 2009 with the creative combination of a delicious dinner and the jazz stylings of renowned vocalist
Thos Shipley. Equally at home in the most intimate New York and international clubs, Shipley’s jazz and R&B vocal pyrotechnics have put him in a category that is singularly his own.
Shipley garnered the 1996 MAC Jazz Vocalist Award, which was presented by the legendary Al Jarreau. “This was thrilling because Al is one of my favorite jazz artists,” says Shipley, whose musical journey began when Tony Award- and Emmy Award-winning actress and singer Leslie Uggams discovered him singing in Atlanta. Uggams beckoned him north and introduced him in a solo show to a celebrity-packed room at the Claridge in Atlantic City.
Shipley will entertain Settlers Inn guests during two seatings on Wednesday, December 31 at 6:30 and 9 PM. Highlights of the three-course Undercroft menu include spinach oyster bisque; poached shrimp with avocado and pineapple salsa; macadamia grouper with honey lemon thyme buerre blanc and brown basmati rice, passion fruit and baby bok choy; or a trio of seasonal raviolis in sherry brown butter and sage sauce with wilted spinach and parmesan. Cost for the three-course dinner is $75 per person, plus tax and gratuity.
In addition to Shipley’s New Year’s Eve performance in the Undercroft, Dining Room guests will enjoy entertainment by pianist Ben Murray and an a la carte menu featuring a fine selection of dishes prepared with the freshest local ingredients.
