The 400 block of 4th street in Sarasota is the place to be this Friday night. Where else will you see two of the hottest female vocalists around in the same night? At Darwin’s on 4th you can check out Sarasota’s newest rising star, Ari McManus, and then head next door to see the Tampa Bay Area’s “First Lady of The Blues,” Lauren Mitchell. at the Blue Rooster.
Park your car and enjoy almost 5 hours of entertainment and great food. Darwin’s on 4th has awesome Peruvian Cuisine and their own brewery. Chef Darwin Santa Maria’s Ceviches are made with the freshest ingredients. Their extensive menu has something for everyone and the beer selection is huge. Enjoy Ari’s vocals accompanied by outstanding guitarist, Nicolaas Kraster. Sit back because they put on quite a show. Visit Darwin’s website at www.darwinson4th.com.
When you come next door to the Blue Rooster you’ll be greeted by an awesome staff that always goes out of their way to make you feel right at home. Great drinks, great atmosphere and an excellent soul food menu are the perfect compliment to the Lauren Mitchell Band’s blues. Personally, I love their fried chicken. The Blue Rooster is a huge supporter of live entertainment, especially blues. On any given night you can see some of the best in local, regional, and even national blues bands there. You can check out their full line up of live music (and the menu!) at www.blueroostersrq.com The Lauren Mitchell Band will be rockin’ the Rooster until the roof comes off Friday night! Not to mention, that this is one of Lauren’s very few Sarasota appearances before she and her band head to Memphis in January to compete at The International Blues Challenge, along with some of the world’s best un-signed blues talent. This is a show not to be missed!
So 1525 4th Street is gonna be THE hottest spot in town this Friday night. Great food and drinks, and two of the best live acts around! Ari and Nic start at 7 and then go next door about 9 to see the Lauren Mitchell Band. I heard there will be a few celebrity guests stopping by.
You don’t want to miss the chance to catch both of these ladies in one night … The stars may not align this way again for years to come!
