Here are musician Ken Beasley’s top music picks on the Lower East Side for this weekend:
ALEX AND JANEL – Fri, Nov. 4 | 11PM at Rockwood Music Hall
NYC has spawned countless musical teams and collaborations through the generations, which as an artist, is one of the benefits of living here. You never know with whom you’ll cross paths and share a profound musical connection. Broadway veteran Alex Brumel and accomplished jazz singer Janel Elizabeth are two who have experienced this very thing. After getting together to play some songs for fun, they both felt that they had sparked something great, and have never looked back. As Alex and Janel, they perform and record tunes laced with easy-breezy melodies, tight vocal harmonies and unexpected chord structures. FREE//196 Allen St.
