On Friday the 13th (!) 59-year old soul singer Carlton Jumel Smith will be appearing at the Bitterzoet club in Amsterdam. Tickets are €17 and doors open at 7:30 PM.
Carlton is a singer, songwriter, producer, and actor whose nickname since the 1990s has been "Soul Brother Number New," thanks to his cinematic portrayal of James Brown in Barry Levinson's 1999 film Liberty Heights. With a smooth baritone that is alternately grainy and sweet with a distinctive falsetto, he has been bringing his revue-style shows to stages across the United States, Europe, and Asia since 2002, including several stints in Shanghai, Helsinki, Las Vegas, and London, England.
