54 Below

A Nonprofit Cabaret Venue

Vocalist John Minnock returns to 54 Below for a high-energy jazz-infused show, celebrating material from recent releases on Dot Time Records, and with previews of songs from his upcoming album. With him is special guest, NEA Jazz Master and Grammy-nominee saxophonist, Dave Liebman. New material focuses on music from across the career of industry legend, David Shire.

John’s recordings for Dot Time contain re-imagined standards as well as new compositions. These recordings also contain new material by David Shire, including “After All These Years,” regarding marriage equality, and “Simplicity,” the title track from John’s most recent album.

John’s show and albums consistently draw from and are faithful to John’s background as a gay man and the LGBTQ community.

Minnock is the recipient of the 2019 HotHouse/Jazzmobile NYC Readers Best Male Vocalist award.

“Minnock is a leader with an empowered vision…sympathetic emotions we all feel, everyone, though especially the gay men who will find their own stories here. Particularly special to the success of Herring Cove is the contribution of Academy Award winner David Shire, providing two songs for Minnock, who skillfully embodies the Maestro’s mood. Minnock’s performance is articulate and emotionally in contact with Mr. Shire’s artistry.” — Stephen Mosher, BroadwayWorld
