Dion Parson and The 21st Century Band Perform at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola



Dion Parson

 Looking for some culture in New York City this holiday weekend?

Treat yourself to a night of jazz at the world famous Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola where Grammy Award winning drummer, Dion Parson and The 21st Century Band will be performing  now through September 4.

I was in attendance for the kickoff of Dion’s 5-day concert series, where he and his ingenious musical crew treated a packed house to a 90-minute set of traditional jazz fused with soulful, islandy sounds. Percussion, saxophone, steel pans, trumpet, piano, bass and Dion on the drums provides for a perfect blend of lively Caribbean rhythms and standard jazz harmonies.

Not to be upstaged by the stellar musicians that play in it, the venue itself is a site to behold. Situated inside of the Time Warner Center, Dizzy’s offers a vast, elevated view of Central Park and an intimate setting (the walls are lined with bamboo!) perfect for live entertainment and dining.

LIBATION SUGGESTION:

Try the blood orange margarita. The tangy concoction goes down smooth and will get your night started on the right note long before the band hits the stage!
