  • Songwriter Share: HooDoo Loungers
  • We are kicking off the Fourth Annual Songwriters Share Concert Series with the HooDoo Loungers. This very unique series that gives back to the community features local songwriters that SHARE with the audience what inspired them to write their songs and they SHARE the proceeds of the concert with a local charity of their choice. Concertgoers not only support local musicians and local charities, they also get an inside look at the songwriting process through these talented musicians. The Songwriters Share Concerts will be held the first Friday of each month-January through June.
  • Since 2009 the HooDoo Loungers have been performing their New Orleans influenced brand of R&B up and down the east coast. Their new CD, as yet untitled will be released this spring and members of the band look forward to performing trimmed down versions of their new songs. Featured at this concert will be keyboards David Deitch, Guitarist Michael Schiano, vocalist Dawnette Darden with Joe Lauro on acoustic bass and David Giacone on percussion.
