EASTERN MUSIC FESTIVAL
June 24 – July 29, 2017 • Proximity Hotel is delighted to be an Official Hotel of the Eastern Music Festival in Greensboro. Each summer, for five glorious weeks, the area is transformed for music enthusiasts of all ages whose tastes range from classical to jazz to bluegrass to rock and everything in between. Concerts and events happen daily.
The internationally recognized Eastern Music Festival will produce over 100 events – everything from Grammy-winning classical soloists with symphony orchestra (three resident orchestras to choose from) – to two chamber series, and including the EMF fringe series.
Songs From a Southern
Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen in Greensboro features an evening with the fine area musicians, surrounded by friends old and new, in a warm, convivial atmosphere, topped by seasonal Southern snacks and a wide selection of libations. Make yourself at home. Join local musicians every Tuesday from 6–9 PM…no cover charge!
Mussels, WIne and Music
Unwind with friends at Print Works Bistro every Wednesday night with our Chef’s Mussels for $15, five wines from $10 to $15 a bottle and live acoustic music from 7–10 PM by Evan Olson and Jessica Mashburn of AM rOdeO. Fantastic covers and original live music. No cover charge!
Thursday Cocktails and Jazz
For 15 years, we’ve dreamed of creating a cocktail and jazz vibe such as was all the rage in some New York hotels in the ‘50s. Every Thursday you can enjoy vintage craft cocktails and delightful Mediterranean tapas (see the menu) garnished with live American jazz standards from 5:30 – 8:30 PM.
Artists Dave Fox (piano), Neill Clegg (saxophone, clarinet and flute) and NOW…Matt Kendrick (double bass) will be joined by guest vocalists, who cover The Great American Songbook and jazz classics including swing…and modern classics from the late ‘50s to early ‘60s, as well as Brazilian jazz from the early ‘60s.
Select Saturday O.Henry Jazz Series
Cocktails and Jazz at the O.Henry is so much fun that we asked the amazing Victoria and Neill Clegg to curate an expansion of the O.Henry Jazz scene. On select Saturdays you can enjoy vintage craft cocktails and delightful seasonal tapas (see the menu) along with an eclectic array of jazz artists performing in the varied styles of contemporary jazz. Select Saturdays from 6:30-9:30 PM.
This is NOT the same experience as Thursday Night Cocktails & Jazz with Neill Clegg and Dave Fox. You can still enjoy their talents — along with those of a rotating roster of extraordinary Jazz vocalists — as they focus on the great American Songbook and beyond, Thursday nights from 5:30 – 8:30 PM.
