Lead singer Danielle Dubois brings an exciting, unique flavor to Sweet Street. Her musical theater background and jazz stylings are garnished with a modern R&B twist, adding a dynamic dimension to the band’s mad mashups and superlative standards.

Michael Ami

is a jazz pianist/singer with a difference. A classical pianist and composer since age four, he performed his own works, along with those of the great composers, at University of Miami recitals when he was just eight years old. His improvisation and ear skills showed themselves early, causing his piano teacher great consternation as Michael improvised riffs on Beethoven and Kabalevsky sonatas instead of playing the pieces as written.

After earning a Boston Conservatory of Music degree in composition, with a concentration in orchestral and choir conducting, Michael’s extensive repertoire of around 1000 pop songs landed him as a piano bar entertainer on cruise ships. Since leaving the seafaring life, he has concentrated on jazz, incorporating his classical and pop heritage into his unique interpretation of jazz classics. This wild mix of styles is behind Sweet Street’s trademark “mad mash-ups,” in which the duo combines two, three and even four songs into one unforgettable experience.

When not at the piano, Michael enjoys technological pursuits, and is a well-published author of books and magazine articles in the electronics field, as well as an inventor and an avid amateur radio operator.

Loose Association Jazz Quartet!

loose association

When we are open there’s Jazz!  July 10th 7-10pm, La Cour, French Restaurant & Jazz Club, presents Loose Association!

Loose Association Doug Yager Michael Fitzmaurice Brian Mullins

Join Brian Mullin’s and his group Loose Association Jazz Quartet at La Cour where they perform their new vintage jazz, original and standard songs.  Brian Mullin’s (tenor guitar and vocals), Doug Yager (tenor and c-melody saxophone), Dave Willey (piano and accordion) and Mike Fitzmaurice (upright bass and vocals).

Loose Association draws on original compositions by band leader Brian Mullins that he describes as new vintage jazz.  The vintage element originates from multiple sources of inspiration. Brian and band members have a deep appreciation of the jazz standards and the composers who use chord progressions, overprinted by expressive melodies that can transport musicians and listeners to another place and time.  Another source of the vintage vibe comes from the band instrumentation- tenor guitar, piano or accordion, and the ‘mystery horn’, a 1920’s vintage C-melody saxophone, the type played on Frank Zappa’s album The Grand Wazoo. The “new” in vintage is partly from the world influences from Brian traveling and performing in Europe, Vietnam, Central America, and the U.S.  This experience is woven into each composition either deliberately or unintentionally to create a fresh, new-jazz, world music sound.

Many in the band are multi-instrumentalists and have acquired their chops in other trad-jazz, Celtic, prog-rock, Latin, acoustic, and classical groups.

Whether performing original tunes or jazz standards, one thing is certain when hearing and seeing Loose Association perform, it will be dynamic.  Brian Mullins (tenor guitar and vocals), Doug Yager (tenor and C-melody saxophones), Dave Willey (piano and accordion), Mike Fitzmaurice (upright bass and vocals).
