Q’s Bar & Lounge announces huge new resident act

You can never go wrong with a bit of funk and Motown classics, and one of the city’s top live music venues is bringing in just the person to get us grooving.

From Tuesday January 22, Chicago-born music star David Davis will be taking up residency at Q’s Lounge & Bar in the luxury hotel, Palazzo Versace Dubai.

With inspirations from stars of the jazz world such as Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway and India Arie, Davis is now making his mark in Dubai with weekly live performances until Thursday May 2.

Davis has recorded with some of the best producers, including RedOne who’s worked with Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, One Direction and Jennifer Lopez, along with Aaron Sprinkle who has produced legendary bands One Republic and Eisley.

He's also garnered a wide range of awards as well as having songs featured on hit TV shows.

You can catch Davis live on stage from Tuesdays to Fridays at 9pm to 10pm, 10.30pm to 11.30pm and midnight until 1am, with a minimum spend of Dhs350 on Thursdays and Fridays.

As for those looking for some tunes on Saturday, Davis will be performing at various times from 8pm until midnight.

“I can’t wait for you all to witness what makes David Davis a “Little Mo’ Betta” and experience his electric energy on stage. Dubai, you don’t want to miss this cat because he’s got the moves AND the grooves”, said famous American producer and owner Quincy Jones.

The highly commended live music venue at the Time Out Dubai Music & Nightlife Awards 2018 is the first-ever bar from legendary music producer Quincy Jones, who has won 27 Grammy’s in his career, with a chic interior and a relaxed, chilled-out vibe.

The swanky jazz bar is known for bringing in some stellar acts, recently including singer, dancer and actor Rogelio Douglas Jr., and there’s still a chance to catch him live.

The US TV star will be performing until Saturday January 19, and it’s definitely something you won’t want to miss, as his music has been featured in hit shows such as Empire, Silicon Valley and Deadliest Catch.

Previous acts also include Beyoncé, Usher and Kelly Clarkson’s songwriter Nstasia along with pop-artist Ele Teplin, who was signed by Jones himself.
