Romance to rock 'n' roll

How about some romantic jazz standards on Valentine’s Day? Or how about some hard-core-party-music-’cause-your-baby-dumped-you for the day after Valentine’s Day?

Either way, you’re covered this week at the Coppertop. 
Jean Mancini Gough in the studio

The Jean Mancini Gough Jazz Group is performing Thursday from 8 to 10 p.m. Gough is a versatile vocalist whose work spans gospel to opera to jazz. Her jazz CD “With Friends” puts a fresh spin on such staples as “Caravan” (perhaps best known as an instrumental) and “Cry Me a River."
J. Stuart Esty of Road Kill Orchestra

The Road Kill Orchestra is the ongoing musical adventure started by keyboard player and singer J. Stuart Esty and drummer Austin Beliveau. While the remainder of the lineup has been a work in progress, the RKO has stuck to a fierce brand of primal rock 'n' roll yet is pretty adventurous in the songwriting and jamming departments. We spoke with Esty and will have his updates and musings written up here ahead of the band’s show Friday night.

Now & Then is in the Coppertop Saturday night at 8 p.m., and Evan Goodrow returns Sunday at 4 p.m.
