Every Tuesday evening The Uptown NIghtclub hosts Two Piece Tuesdays; a free live music showcase in our front room. This week, Two Piece Tuesdays brings you San Francisco’s Lee Vilensky Trio.

“MY FAVORITE SONGS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN INSTRUMENTALS, ESPECIALLY WHEN ACCOMPANIED BY IMAGES, FILM SCORES IN PARTICULAR….MUSIC THAT EVOKES A SCENE, SOUND AS A PRELUDE TO ACTION AND MOVEMENT.

I WANTED TO ASSEMBLE A BAND THAT PLAYED ALL INSTRUMENTALS SO THAT GROOVE AND FEEL, MELODY AND HARMONY, COULD BE FULLY ENJOYED, UNENCUMBERED BY LYRICS. FORMED IN 2000 FROM THE REMAINS OF THE SWINGIN’ JOHNSONS, WE DECIDED TO SWITCH THE FORMAT TO ALL INSTRUMENTALS DUE TO THE UNPREDICTABLE BEHAVIOR AND GENERAL UNSAVORY APPEARANCE, HYGIENE AND HABITS OF MOST VOCALISTS. WHAT STARTED AS A SIDE BAND FOR WELL TRAVELED BAY AREA SIDEMEN, HAS EVOLVED INTO ONE OF SF’s MOST POPULAR INSTRUMENTAL GROUPS AND THE PROGENITORS OF THE GENRE, “SPY/SOUL”. OUR NEW CD, “DESTINATION: LOVE”, ON 658 RECORDS, IS NOW AVAILABLE @ CDBABY, ALONG WITH OUR 2011 RELEASE,”DIRTY DEALINGS ON A LATIN MOON” – Lee Vilensky
