Maduro presents TIARA FRIDAY CLUB featuring Richard Jackson
Supported by Tan Wei Xiang (piano), Ben Poh (bass) and Soh Wen Ming (drums)
Welcome to Maduro, a listening lounge and bar devoted to preserving the virtuosity of the classics. Fashioned after owner Mr. P’s storied musical past and present, the music programme is fiercely classicist by nature, intriguing at times; with two live music nights—1819 Tuesdays and Tiara Friday Club—both cheeky nods to the venues where Mr. P used to perform, and each infused with its own groove and flavour.
Tiara Friday Club is a weekly Friday live music night that pays homage to Tiara Supper Club, the iconic jewel of the Shangri-La in the 80’s where Mr. P performed at the peak of his career. In the spirit of saving the best for last, each evening will see a star-studded line-up of Singapore’s top chanteuses and crooners perform alongside their musician counterparts.
Following a sold-out splendour of an opening weekend—and always one to outdo himself—Mr. P enlists one of the most velvety, smooth vocals in town, Mr. Richard Jackson, to keep the torch ablaze. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio surrounded by some of Gospel music’s finest, Singapore-based since ‘08, quickly becoming a regional jazz circuit favourite; and coupled with billings in international jazz festivals from France to Russia – it is his undisputed combination of incredible tone with intelligent phrasing and heartfelt intensity that keeps Jackson in constant demand. Match that with three of Singapore’s finest jazz musicians—Tan Wei Xiang on the piano, Ben Poh on bass, and Soh Wen Ming on drums—and a convincing vocal trombone by Jackson himself… Maduro, prepare to get your hearts utterly won over.
Admission is free. Maduro is located at 40C Harding Road, Level 3, Singapore 249548 (above ATOUT Restaurant), and open from 2pm to 2am every Friday. For table reservations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call +65 6950 5855.
