Kick your week off with some afternoon entertainment from 1:00PM to 3:00PM. At 28 years of age, Seattle native Danny Quintero has shared the stage with many high profile musicians. Danny’s keen ear for subtle nuances of the Sinatra school of ‘Bel Canto’ singing-articulation, phrasing, dynamics and breath control have brought a fresh, like-able and personalized approach to the Great American Songbook. He continues to make appearances on Seattle radio stations, at Jazz clubs throughout the Pacific Northwest and more notably has performed several times with the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra at Benaroya Hall. In December of 2013, Danny successfully released his Christmas Album, “Merry Christmas” with acclaimed pianist, Randy Halberstadt and special guests Clarence Acox and Katie Davi.
Tuesday the 13th

From 7:00PM to 11:00PM Muze will host a “Fat Tuesday” Party complete with live music from Zydeco Rex. Zydeco Rex was founded in 2013 in Seattle, grown from its members’ 25+ years of collective experience playing the exciting and joyful dance music of Southwest Louisiana. Zydeco music dates back to the 1940’s when the great Clifton Chenier took his love of Blues music, blended it with Cajun roots and Rock music, and named it Zydeco. Zydeco comes from the French phrase “les haricots”, which is short for the expression of hard times, “les haricots son pas sale,” or “the snap beans aren’t salty.” Enjoy free, festive Mardi Gras party favors starting at 7:00PM to help to celebrate at the Mardi Gras Party.
