Monday, Jan. 14, 7 p.m.—KILLINGTON— Joey Leone hits the stage at The Foundry with special guest, Michael Zsoldos, for Monday Blues Night. Starting at 7 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 14, Leone and Zsoldos will perform timeless blues tunes in an upbeat, feel-good fashion.
Joey Leone started his career in 1971, forming his first band called 2 Cents Plain. During his early years as a musician, Leone co-founded the jazz-fusion band, Jumpstreet. Over the years, Leone met his mentor Robbie Farrow, worked with producer Tony Bruno, dabbled in the advertising industry, and even designed his own signature guitar for Eastwood Guitars. Notable performances include playing with Joe Perry, Chaka Khan, and Ben E. King. Leone now calls Killington home and continues his successful musical career at venues such as the Pickle Barrel Nightclub, JAX Food and Games, and The Foundry.
Michael Zsoldos has been performing since 2004, starting his career off as a performer and musical composer for the Dartmouth College Gospel Choir and “Dartmouth Idol.” In 2010, Zsoldos released “Off the Cuff,” his debut CD which gained popular attention over the radio in the United States and Canada. In 2011, Zsoldos’ composition was nominated in four categories for the Grammys. Original scores can be heard in productions such as the award-winning documentary aired on PBS, “Birdsong and Coffee: A Wakeup Call.” Zsoldos currently resides in Vermont and is active in the community as a faculty member of the University of Vermont.
Blues Night is a free event on Monday nights at The Foundry, 63 Summit Road, Killington.
