The nights are starting to get a little cooler, which is a reminder that high season will soon return to Sarasota. All the more reason to savor an evening out at Ziti restaurant at Southgate Plaza, to hear Taylor Opie sing with the Dan Dembicki Trio. Tonight, Tuesday, September 9, 2014, from 6 - 10PM.
This is a rare opportunity to see a young singer whose range of material and vocal inflection spans generations of musical genres. And you don't have to make your way through a noisy club scene to see her perform. Ziti is an upscale, relaxed fusion restaurant that brings nightlife (finally!) to a mall that's quiet at night. Translation: Lots of easy, free parking, an interesting menu, attentive service, and a musical program that will move you and make you rock and smile.
I don't want to say, "I told you so", when Taylor Opie advances beyond the confines of the Sarasota live music scene, and you find yourself scratching your head and wondering why you didn't go out to hear her tonight!
UPDATE: A special night of music got even richer when Taylor Opie was joined onstage by Dmitri Theodorides on lead guitar, and later by her sister, Sarasota actor and musical songstress Alana Opie on harmony vocals. A real cabaret event.
