jazz cafeThe Whiskey Charmers
September 10, 2015
The Whiskey Charmers is the duo of Carrie Shepard and Lawrence Daversa. This past March, they released their debut album which has been receiving excellent reviews in the U.S. and abroad. Their songs are filled with haunting melodies that tell stories of the open road, whiskey, and chasing a cure for incurable heartache. Vickye Fisher of For the Country Record says “If you were wondering where the roots and grit of country music had gone, you’ll find it in this album. There is a fulfilling darkness and aching quality about this record that falls in line with the genre at its best”.
Fans have described their music as:
– “Riding through the Mojave Desert in a convertible with the top down”
– “Chris Isaak Shoegaze Americana.”
– “Sex. With death shortly thereafter.”
-Patsy Cline meets Chrissie Hynde
-Lucinda on LSD

jazz cafeVladimir Cetkar
September 18, 2015
The NYC based guitarist, vocalist, composer, arranger, and music producer, Vladimir Cetkar (pronounced Chet-kar) was born in Ohrid in Macedonia. His critically acclaimed, original album releases 'Heavenly' and 'We Will Never End', have positioned him as one of the most distinguished names in the jazz-soul-funk genre.
Critics recognize Cetkar's unique sound and passion, and have drawn many flattering comparisons: George Benson's guitar playing; Quincy Jones' arrangements and production; Earth Wind and Fire's vocals; and Jamiroquai's grooves; Described by Time Out New York as "George Michael fronting Steely Dan in a cocktail bar," Vladimir Cetkar's work can be described as his original music cocktail, incorporating a pristine distillate of the jazz, pop, soul and disco sounds of the late 70's and early 80's, along with a hint of what's to come.
SEVEN DAYS NEWSPAPER
'Mix George Benson's guitar playing with Quincy Jones' arrangements, add Jamiroquai's grooves and Earth, Wind & Fire's vocals and, you get Vladimir Cetkar. Brimming with style, the multitalented Macedonian guitarist and vocalist also composes, arranges and produces his original music. Described by Time Out New York as "George Michael fronting Steely Dan in a cocktail bar," Cetkar channels the 1970s and '80s, interweaving pop, soul and disco into jazz.'
'Macedonian guitarist Vladimir Cetkar's melange of jazz, funk, and soul is fleet, uninhibited, and original. If the occasional high strings and up-tempo funk evoke disco, then Cetkar's emotive, earnest voice makes appeals intended for only the smoothest of jazz gods.'
TIME OUT NYC
'Vladimir Cetkar's shirtless beachside promo photos tell you all you need to know: This Macedonian soul man mashes disco and fusion into luxurious pop concoctions. Think George Michael fronting Steely Dan in a cocktail bar.'
