Last reminder: Phoenix Music Night at the Blue Opus!

It was delayed from this year’s homecoming activities, due to frigid temperatures. Now there are no excuses for what promises to be a great evening of music… It’s Phoenix Music Night at the Blue Opus (1390 Bellevue Street, Suite 110, Green Bay), Thursday, May 9 from 5 to 9 p.m. And it’s free! Here’s more: Enjoy music performed by UW-Green Bay students, alumni and faculty in one night! UW-Green Bay student and guitarist Antonio Salerno opens up the night at 5 p.m. at 5:45 p.m., MaR will take the stage. UW-Green Bay alumni Matt Hillman and Rissel Peguero’s duo MaR’s style can be described as a fusion of tastes between the Latin-folk-gospel roots of Rissel (vocalist and pianist) and funk-r&b-jazz of Matt (guitarist). Combining their different backgrounds, a novel and personal touch is put into each tune performed and written. Finally Brass Differential concludes the show starting at 7 p.m. Brass Differential’s live show features diverse set lists presented in a high energy style sure to please the most casual or sophisticated music fan. Their sound is steeped in the New Orleans tradition and features a spicy gumbo of musical styles, including jazz, blues, funk, R&B, soul, and hip-hop, among others. What sets Brass Differential apart, however, is its unique horn-centered sound, anchored in the low end by the sousaphone. The group’s live experience promises to please with blistering, abundant solos and prolific attitude.
