“Marji puts an indelibly personal stamp on songs from such diverse writers as Aimee Mann, Mark Knopfler, and George Gershwin...and accompanies her voice with sophisticated and skillful guitar work.”

This is a wonderful treat: Performing a house concert! And, this one is so close to home, I could walk there! (Well, truthfully, I could technically walk to all my shows, but most of them would take me hours or days to get there strictly on foot.) This is a private event, but I mention it here because perhaps YOU would like to host a house concert, too! If so, go have a look at www.marjizintz.us/house-concerts, download the PDF, and get inspired!
I have the distinct privilege to back up songwriter Andy Shapiro at this showcase event. Andy's writing is beautiful. His harmonies are accessible yet sophisticated, and his playing is really pleasing. Joining me in supporting Andy will be Ethan Campbell on voice and bass. It'll be quite a lot of fun! I hope you can come!
Mashup is coming to Green Kill, featuring a set each by musicians extraordinaire Kunkel & Kopchak, Mary Hood, and a set by Becoming Human (Marji Zintz on vox, guitar & perc; Jim Kunkel on guitar; and Mick Kopchak on bass/effects and vocals). Tickets are $10 at the door and may be reserved on Eventbrite.com. Green Kill offers soft drinks and light healthy snacks at Ozubar and you may BYOB. Seating is limited to 45. Come join us!!!
This Friday, I'll be the opening act for a remarkable performer: Loudon Wainwright III. It'd be great to see you there!
Born in Chapel Hill, N.C. in 1946, Loudon Wainwright III came to fame when “Dead Skunk” became a Top 20 hit in 1972. He had studied acting at Carnegie-Mellon University, but dropped out to partake in the “Summer of Love” in San Francisco, and wrote his first song in 1968 (“Edgar,” about a lobsterman in Rhode Island).
He was soon signed to Atlantic Records by Nesuhi Ertegun, and was lured by Clive Davis to Columbia Records, which released “Dead Skunk.” His songs have since been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, his son Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison, among others. Wainwright has recorded 27 albums including his 2010 Grammy Award-winning ‘High, Wide & Handsome.’
In Fall 2018, Loudon released ‘Years In The Making’ (StorySound Records), a 42-song treasury of rare and unreleased Loudoniana. This 2-disc, 60-page hardbound audio-biography of his 40-year career includes orphaned album cuts, lovingly lo-fi home recordings, radio appearances, demos, live performances and beyond. It features appearances by Kate McGarrigle, Suzzy Roche, Bill Frisell, Van Dyke Parks, Chaim Tannenbaum, David Mansfield, and the Wainwright children Rufus, Martha, Lucy and Lexie.
In 2017, Wainwright published his memoir, ‘Liner Notes’ (Blue Rider Press), which led to appearances on Fresh Air with Terry Gross and WTF with Marc Maron. The NY Times said the book “makes your heart wobble on its axis.”
Wainwright also created a one-man theatrical show, “Surviving Twin,” which combines his songs and the writings of his late father. Initially developed as part of University of North Carolina's Playmakers series, it focuses on fatherhood—both being a father and having one—and also explores the issues of birth, self-identity, loss, mortality, fashion, and of course, pet ownership.
Additionally, Wainwright has co-written with songwriter/producer Joe Henry on the music for Judd Apatow’s hit movie “Knocked Up,” written music for the British theatrical adaptation of the Carl Hiaasen novel “Lucky You,” and composed topical songs for NPR’s “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered” and ABC’s “Nightline.” An accomplished actor, he has appeared in films directed by Martin Scorsese, Hal Ashby, Christopher Guest, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe and Judd Apatow. Wainwright has also starred on TV in “M.A.S.H.” and “Undeclared,” and on Broadway in “Pump Boys and Dinettes.” More recently, he appeared in the film “Pleased To Meet You” (with fellow musicians John Doe, Aimee Mann and Joe Henry).
