Dion Parson and The 21st Century Band Perform at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola
Thursday, September 1, 2011
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.

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!
