Ann Phillippone

[Jazz-Rock] Every Sunday at Nietzsche’s, the merry voice of House Pianist, Ann Phillippone, echoes over the crowd, urging patrons to call in sick to work the next morning, and boogie with her all night long. Ann plays her Sunday sets with one objective: to end the weekend on a positive note. For two hours, the Boogie-Woogie Mama tickles the ivory of a 1913 open-faced piano that she rolled into Nietzsche’s in 2003. Every Sunday since, whether she’s playing for a packed room or just the bartender, she gives it her all. She plays the blues, jazz, boogie-woogie, stride piano, and everything in between with unparalleled conviction, but what distinguishes her is her expansive repertoire, which can also include classical, rock, and country. She even takes requests, and she does it all without sheet music. Dr. Jazz and the Jazzbugs take the stage after Ann, rounding out a retro night in an artsy, shabby-chic bar where music is the word of the lord. On Sunday, November 30 Ann will play her last show at Nietzsche’s before taking a short winter break. Local bluesman, John Brady, will fill in until her return.
