Victor V. Gurbo & Co.

"Roots revivalist Victor V. Gurbo and his four-piece backing band create original folk ballads infused with an Americana spirit. Recently voted the 2013 Brooklyn Borough Champion at WNYC & WQXR's Battle of the Boroughs, Gurbo & Co. pay homage to the canon of American song and poetry with a raw, bluesy, foot-stomping sound that’s both classic and contemporary."

The Bliss Jockeys

The Bliss Jockeys are a dynamic folk/rock/jam band led by
singer/songwriter Phil Robinson. A popular fixture on the NYC performance circuit, the band also regularly plays festivals & special events throughout the larger NY/NJ area.

The Bliss Jockeys deliver a big, delirious experience that energizes, inspires and gets audiences singing along every time. Taking their name from Joseph Campbell's phrase, "Follow Your Bliss," the band draws from a deep well of mythic inspiration-- its repertoire includes Phil’s fun, upbeat originals such as ‘Transcendental Cowboy’ and ‘Through The Middle' as well as playful covers drawing from bar-band classics to Bruce Springsteen and Led Zeppelin.

Myriam Phiro's Swing Party

Brought together by a mutual love of french cuisine and french music, Myriam Phiro and Robbie Kleinberg began their musical partnership and Miss Phiro's Swing Party was born. Having a swing band has always been one of Myriam's dreams; considering her range from a seductive and elegant jazz singer to an energetic swing dancer, the transition was obvious. Robbie's flair for it came after a decade of education in American Jazz, and found himself captivated by French music at first "bonjour!"

Then, selected musicians were added to the mix; creating a very unique flavor; alienating the big band era's sounds, the french elegance of the 20's topped with a modern twist. If, as individuals, all members are very much prolific in their solo careers on NY's music scene, they're happy to offer Ella Lounge's audience their rendition of a swing band!
