Dates are April 11/12, April 25/26 and May 23/24. Showtime is 10:45pm. Cover charge is $25 on Thursdays, $30 on Fridays and the minimum is $25.
Call: 212.744.1600 for reservations.
Joining her are: Dalton Ridenhour at the piano; Darrian Douglas on drums, and Sean Cronin on Upright Bass & vocals.
"Bria Skonberg looks like a Scandinavian angel (or Thor's girlfriend), plays trumpet like a red hot devil, and sings like a dream. Her new album, "So Is the Day" reveals that she's also a very capable bandleader and composer."
•Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal
