A specialist in classic American jazz, Bria Skonberg expands the vocabulary and traditions of Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet with worldly rhythms and modern jazz variance. She calls her music Hot Jazz. Born in British Columbia, the young trumpeter moved to New York City in 2010 and is now at the forefront of a new wave of traditional jazz revival. Her U.S. debut album, So Is the Day, peaked at number seven on the U.S. national jazz charts and featured original compositions and New Orleans–inspired stylistic fusions.

We have a pair of tickets to their show on 11/14 at MIM! To enter send an email to contests@silverplatter.info with “Bria Skonberg” on the title. On the message put down your name and phone number.

Win tickets to see “AMY” – Amy Winehouse Documentary!!!

 amy-poster-art.jpg

 

From BAFTA Award-winning director Asif Kapadia (SENNA), AMY tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse – in her own words. Featuring extensive unseen archival footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on our culture and the world we live in today.

A once-in-a-generation talent, Amy Winehouse was a musician that captured the world’s attention with her unforgettable voice and charisma. A pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense, Amy poured her heart and soul into her music, expressing personal struggles and pain through her intimate lyrics.  The combination of her raw honesty and virtuosity resulted in some of the most unique and adored songs of our time.

Amy became an international sensation, experiencing a meteoric rise to fame she had never sought nor expected. The relentless and invasive media attention, coupled with Amy’s troubled relationships and addictions, led her into a tragic cycle of self-destruction, resulting in her untimely death at age 27.  Four years later, Asif Kapadia’s powerful documentary invites audiences to remember and celebrate Amy as a brilliant artist while asking ourselves how it was that we watched her disappear in front of our eyes.

Stinkweeds and Silverplatter.info have pairs of tickets to giveaway to the advanced screening of Amy on July 7 at Harkins’ Tempe Marketplace.  To enter send an email to contests@silverplatter.info with “Winehouse” on the title.  On the message put down your name and phone number.  

Good luck!

The film opens nationwide on July 10.

Win tickets to see “Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten” at FilmBar!

During the 60’s and early 70’s, as the war in Vietnam threatened its borders, a new music scene emerged in Cambodia that took Western rock and roll and stood it on its head – creating a sound like no other.

This documentary film, DON’T THINK I’VE FORGOTTEN, provides a new perspective on a country usually associated with war and genocide. By celebrating this powerful music, and the people who created it, Cambodia’s musical heyday emerges from the shadows of tragedy into the light of history.
