One Man-One Guitar-One Shot at Studio59Live Arts

One Man-One Guitar-One Shot at Studio59Live Arts

Tonight March 15th at 8pm will bear witness to an incredible performance by singer/songwriter Jay Roberts. Performing “One Man-One Guitar-One Shot” at Studio59Live Arts, Jay Roberts is the musician known throughout Connecticut as the entrepreneur behind Performance Hub (with his wife Kris Roberts of The Roberts Tax Group).

Jay will bring with him his repertoire of original work accentuated in his album “Take One and Only One”.  If you have spotify, search for Jay Roberts and give it a listen, it will convince you to go to the show.  There’s rock in “Brown Eyed Molly”; there’s blues in “The Bayou”; there’s tenderness in “Singing to Myself”. There’s heart in every song.  

“Studio 59 Live Arts” at 59 Barber St, Torrington is a beautiful church converted into a salon of music appreciation. The high vaulted ceilings that curve at each end and hard wood floors create the perfect acoustic environment for each note to flourish. And as for seating, instead of having an arrangement of lined chairs as is usual in concert venues, Studio 59 provides luxurious arm chairs and sofas placed in comfortable seating areas and each location enjoys a perfect vantage point to view the performance. There is NO bad seat in the house. The centerpiece of the performance area is the grand piano which is a stunning work of art by itself and the sound resonates throughout the glorious space.

If you’ve gone to Studio59 before then you already know that the acoustics of the location will bring this evening’s entertainment to another level. If you have never gone to Studio59, this is your chance. You owe it to yourself to check out this exquisite and unique Torrington music venue.  Seating is limited and sells out quickly. Contact Studio 59 directly for ticket information. Tickets are $20 each but group rates are available. Call 860-482-6801 for more details.
