Marion Cowings, world-renowned Jazz singer, is set to perform June 11 and 12 at Lincoln Road’s The Upstairs at Van Dyke. Cowings, a native New Yorker, is best known for his considerable range and smooth baritone voice. For decades he has been delighting audiences around the world including venues such as Blue Note, Village Vanguard, and Lincoln Center as well as many prestigious venues abroad. New York Times writer Jon Pareles once penned that Cowings sounded like a latter-day Frank Sinatra which may be attributed to his attendance at the now famous LaGuardia High School where he was chosen to perform as a solo vocalist with the New York Philharmonic. Cowings’ newest CD features performances with Hank Jones and Frank Weiss.

The refurbished space boasts a full-service bar, state of the art sound system, grand piano and is staffed by an acoustic engineer.
