Marc Toussaint Live at Steve's
7:30 PM to 9:30 PM     Wed, Oct 11, 2023

Marc Toussaint

Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughan, Mel Torme... to a 10-year-old at a rummage sale, these were little more than names on records with cool jacket photos. A few spins on a record player, and before long, Marc Toussaint was hooked.

For two decades, Toussaint has been keeping the great jazz standards alive, bringing a golden era back to some who lived it and many more who wish they did.

UNT Zebras with Special Guest Michael League from Snarky Puppy
8:00 PM to 10:00 PM     Thu, Oct 12, 2023

UNT Zebras with Special Guest Michael League from Snarky Puppy

Join us for a special evening of music with visiting artist, Michael League. 

Michael League is an American composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. He is the bandleader of New York-based instrumental band Snarky Puppy. League formed Snarky Puppy in his freshman year of college at the University of North Texas, originally consisting of him and nine of his peers. He composed most of their original music, as well as produced all albums released by the band. Additionally he is the bandleader of the international music ensemble Bokanté. He also founded the band Forq with keyboardist Henry Hey, and is also an owner and founder of the record label GroundUP Music.[2] League has won five Grammy Awards.

He is in town for a 3 day residency here at UNT and we have the opportunity to hear his amazing talent in and upclose and personal space.

UNT Regents Professor and Faculty Emeritus Dan Haerle formed The Zebras in 1980 to give keyboard players a special opportunity to work with electronic instruments. The group explored a wide variety of music, focusing on an eclectic mix of jazz fusion, funk, soul, and pop, often including a horn section and vocalists. Some semesters the Zebras would perform the music of a particular artist or group, such as Stevie Wonder, the Pat Metheny Group, Chick Corea, and Al Jarreau. 
The group has toured extensively, including a performance at the 2002 IAJE convention in Long Beach, CA.
The Zebras album The Flamenco Jazz Project exemplifies the diversity of repertoire wielded by this outstanding ensemble. The current focus of the Commercial Music Lab repertoire is horn-based bands similar to the classics such as Tower of Power and Earth, Wind and Fire, as well as newer contemporary bands like Bruno Mars. High-energy performances are what the Commercial Music Lab is known to deliver, and that UNT tradition continues.

Dinner with Special Guest, Chef Lanky
6:00 PM to 9:00 PM     Mon, Oct 16, 2023

It's Dinner Time!

It's time for our Third special 5 course dinner, with Chef Lanky.

This special dinner event was developed for our October Wine Club program. This is our third month of using a more "mainstream" approach to wine selection. We have invited Chef Lanky (Anthony Langston), who many know as the recent winner of Secret Chef on Hulu. Lanky is a Denton resident who works as a Cheese Monger at 10:1 Cheese as well as a regular tending bar at Eastside. He does many private events and special dinners in the area. He is cooking up some fun flavors that our wine specialist, Cheryl Hunt and Steve, have picked some great wines to pair with the meal.

This month's wine pairing dinner will take place the evening of Monday the 16th. We are hosting up to 30 people for this plated dinner, served with  wines we have curated for each course. This dinner is open to anyone to participate, club member or not.  For those who are unable to join us, we will have the menu/recipes available to craft the meal at home and pair these wines from the comfort of your kitchen/dinning room.

The menu style is what Chef Lanky calls "Oui-Haw". It's a combination of french techniques with bold Texas, Mexican, and Spanish flavors.

Course 1: "Elote". His spin on the classic street corn dish. This is a bread course with it being sweet cornbread, a savory jalapeno jam, corn butter, cotija cheese, and cilantro powder.

Course 2: Smoked Salmon Tartare. Celery, Apple, and Radish salad. The rich smoke with be mixed into the dressing for the salmon with a light and refreshing bite from the salad. This will be served with beet and potato crisps.

Course 3: Potatas Bravo! This is a take on a classic Spanish dish called Potatas Bravas. Crispy and creamy baked and fried potato with a hollandaise sauce, fried spanish chorizo, chorizo oil, asparagus, micro cilantro, and manchego cheese. This will have some rich, creamy, and mildly spicy flavors.

Course 4: Chicken Mole Risotto. Chicken mousseline with a classic mole sauce on a risotto cake. Caramelized pearl onions, Sesame fried potato sticks. This dish will have a very deep and rich chocolate flavor with a smoky pepper kick.

Course 5: Peach Sorbet with ancho chili whipped cream. Sweet and bright flavor of peach with a touch of heat from the whipped cream.

Doors open at 6pm and you will be greeted with glass of wine to enjoy as we prepare for the dinner. We will serve the first course at 6:30. 

As you enjoy your meal, if you would like a full glass of wine, you are welcome to order a one during, or after the meal. Club members will have the opportunity to choose their two bottles to take with them after the meal, and of course, all the wines will be available for purchase to take with you, or to enjoy at the table. 

Reservations go live at noon on October 1st.

Club members are able to order two tickets at their club level discount. The paired wines for this evening will be considered the monthly club tasting.

Make your reservations - space is limited this month to 30 people.

Just a note, gratuity for your servers is not included in the price of the dinner. They will greatly appreciate your support.
