New York, NY (February 20, 2019) – The McKittrick Hotel (530 West 27th Street, NYC), home of Sleep No More, announces MK Groove Orchestra’s new weekly residency, live on Fridays in Manderley Bar.
MK Groove Orchestra is an electro-funk, powerhouse jam band, based in Brooklyn and lead by founder Michael Kammers. Their approach is rooted in the big band jazz tradition of hot brass and sultry vocals, yet catapulted into modern territory with a rhythm section that channels more James Brown than Duke Ellington.
Comprised of New York City’s finest musical talents, MK Groove Orchestra features Michael Kammers on tenor saxophone, keys, compositions and direction, and lady of song, singer Lisa McQuade. Kammers’ compositions, which include over 65 arrangements in the group’s repertoire, expertly weave classic and eclectic styles into a groove all their own.
The group joins house band Bassey and The Heathens’ Saturday night residency at Manderley Bar. The McKittrick Hotel’s jazz age-inspired concert hall and cocktail lounge welcomes guests for revelry and live music during and after Sleep No More. General admission, reserved seating and a full bar are available.
The McKittrick Hotel is open seven days a week. Located in Chelsea near The High Line, Hudson Yards, Hell’s Kitchen and the Meatpacking District, the venue offers a plethora of entertainment options for tourists and locals alike. From the award-winning immersive spectacle Sleep No More, to winter rooftop hideaway The Lodge at Gallow Green, to The Club Car – home of Bartschland Follies, At The Illusionist’s Table, Wonders at Dusk and Speakeasy Magick, there are endless reasons to visit.
Manderley Bar is located in The McKittrick Hotel at 532 West 27th Street, New York, NY 10001. Tickets and reservations are available online at www.mckittrickhotel.com or by calling the Box Office at 212-904-1880.
