Eleisha Eagle

Taking a chapter out of the Ben Folds piano-led pop songbook, Eagle's songwriting is thoughtful, subtle and heartfelt. Her fluid piano-playing and voice puts to shame most overproduced, undertalented divas infesting the airwaves. Somber, jazzy, big city pop is the modus operandi here, where the songs get in your hair and muss it up a bit, in a good way. With Fernadina.The Evening Muse (Samir Shukla).

The Lee Boys

The Miami sextet, three Lee brothers and their nephews, drop infectious blues-gospel that'll get even the most lethargic folks dancing in the aisles. Feel free to sashay, jump and even shout along with the energetic combo's R&B, gospel, funk, rock and pedal steel country. The Boys' music transcends boundaries and the multi-hued vibes bridge secular and spiritual worlds. Sure they're a jam band, but with street cred that can only come from classic sweat-drenched black gospel. Double Door Inn (Shukla).
