Back for a return engagement. In November, Myanna, Ken, and Eddie performed at Orange Door resulting in one fan banging on the producer’s chest saying, “What’s happening here? How can we have just heard this in West Acton?” One of the hottest and most soulful saxophonists in the area, Myanna plays music that mixes jazz improvisation with funky rhythms, expressive playing, and catchy tunes. Her music has been described as funky, bluesy, rootsy, and spontaneous. In years past, she performed with the all-female band Lilith, then worked with the Bill Bellamy Project, followed by Girls’ Night Out. She has been playing with local favorite The Love Dogs since the ’90s. Myanna has recorded three CDs for the Bridge City label and has won awards for best jazz artist from both the “Boston Music Awards” and “The Boston Phoenix Readers Poll.”
“Fugitive at the Door” is a bi-weekly music series presented by Fugitive Productions and Orange Door Kitchen. Since the winter of 2015, Fugitive has been bringing great dance bands to The Gallery at Villageworks. Now, Fugitive is partnering with Villageworks’ newest venue, Orange Door Kitchen, to present “listening” music — one to a few performers playing jazz, folk, bluegrass, blues, classical, world music, possibly even a cappella. Whatever strikes our fancy — and yours.
“Fugitive at the Door” happens two Wednesdays a month. Orange Door Kitchen serves a few small plates and snacks each evening with a full bar. We think you will fall in love with the room and the amenities and hope that our Wednesday evening events offer a regular mid-week break for you.
Orange Door is a no cash, no tipping venue — all transactions are digital and gratuities are included in the menu price.
