About the Artist
On Friday March 6th, Joe McGinty & The Loser’s Lounge join forces with world renowned New York City Soul Man Carlton J. Smith to debut their collaboration of “Soulfully Sinatra.” This all new show explores what happens when you combine the catalog of Frank Sinatra’s ultra cool New York City hip, with classic Soul and R&B arrangements, and the energetic performances, of The Loser’s Lounge and singer Carlton J. Smith. “After the huge success of our collaboration with Carlton J. Smith on ‘The Soul Of Tom Waits’ show, we had to do something together again. Approaching the Frank Sinatra catalog together felt like the perfect choice. Like ‘The Soul of Tom Waits,’ this show will feature only one lead singer, rather than our long standing multiple guest-singer format. Carlton J. Smith is an incredible front man, who will definitely put the SOUL in ‘Soulfully Sinatra,’“ says Loser’s Lounge founder and band leader Joe McGinty. “This is going to give NYC a whole new perspective on these classic songs! It’s as if James Brown and Curtis Mayfield were taking on the songbook of Frank Sinatra,” adds Smith. Joe McGinty and The Loser’s Lounge continue to be a NYC favorite, selling out their popular series at venues including Lincoln Center, Joe’s Pub and City Winery, for over 25 years. Carlton J. Smith is currently touring in support of his debut LP “1634 Lexington Avenue,” available on Timmion/ Daptone Records. Don’t miss the debut of this unique and powerful show, only at The Iridium.
