This Week in Downtown Covington

Published by:

Sunset at the Landing takes place this Friday evening at Columbia Street Landing. The free concert series is brought to you by the City of Covington, the Covington Farmer’s Market and Heritage Bank of St. Tammany. This month’s concert features Noel Tannen and the Filthy No-No’s followed by the Chris Lenox Group.

Noelle and The Filthy No-Nos are a New York based band whose sound is a synthesis of Soul, Jazz and a touch of Rock and Roll. Noelle Tannen’s eclectic vocal approach defies any single standard, ranging from delightfully innocent to aggressively ragged. In turn, her band meets the demands of such acoustic versatility. Delivering a satisfying oomph of harmonic complexity and rhythmic articulation to support the delivery of a neo-sirens song. Noelle’s current base of operations is New Orleans.

Chris Lenox is a member of Toonces and a solo recording artist on Bubble Bath Records. Previous projects include The Consortium of Genius, Rik Slave and The Phantoms and the Bloomin’ Onions. The Chris Lenox Group is Jon Arceneaux on Drums, Rex Gregory on Keyboards and Sax, Chris Lenox with Guitar and Vocals and Owen Pascual on Bass. Bring a picnic basket down to the landing with a chair or a blanket, or enjoy the many dining options in historic downtown Covington.
