It doesn’t get more local than this. Tonight, Celebrate Brooklyn, the long running summer music (and film and dance and spoken word) festival presented at the Prospect Park Bandshell offers a program full of American music of various stripes. Opening that show will be Brooklyn based and neighborhood resident Dayna Kurtz.
Recently, Dayna released two records: American Standard, a rockabilly and early 60s pop flovered affair and Secret Canon Vol. 1, which contains covers of obscure but worthy mid 20th century jazz and r&b tunes (plus one Danya original). Given that Dayna said that she’ll be playing with a “full band, horns, the works” I suspect that song from American Standard will be featured tonight.
Dayna Kurtz, Celebrate Brooklyn (Prospect Park Bandshell), Entrances at 9th and 11th Streets and Prospect Park West (F or G Trains to 7th Avenue or 15th Street-Prospect Park), doors 7pm / show 7:30pm, Free (but a $3 contribution at the time of admission is highly recommended)
