ACID CABARET hit the scene in 2000 and released its lone CD in 2002, garnering some awards on the NY cabaret scene in the process. Pianist/vocalist Ed Alstrom and his trio (featuring the explosive and highly creative talents of Jeff Ganz on bass and Don Guinta on drums) play a bewilderingly eclectic assortment of tunes in their unique style, drawing on Broadway, blues, R&B, cabaret, standards, Classic rock, New Orleans music, novelty items, jazz, opera, quirky originals, and whatever else they can pillage and manipulate to their own ends.
ACID CABARET appeared regularly at Trumpets in its heyday and refined its act there, and is happy to be able to complete the circle there.

One of Trumpets’ favorite performers
Audiences love Mel Davis’ playing! R & B, Jazz & Contemporary! Come out and listen to one of the finest organists and entertainers around! R & B, jazz, blues, pop.. . Mel is one of our favorite artists. You may have heard him here before, but if you haven’t, stop by. You will love Mel whether you like traditional or contemporary jazz. He does it all! Scroll down to listen to one of his tunes.

Melvin Davis, recording artist, vocalist, keyboard player and organist extraordinaire, has understood the power of his hands to transport the sound of instruments from his imagination to a concert hall or nightclub full of eager twitching bodies for all of his life, dating back to childhood. This was when Melvin?s ears, residing in the multi-cultural city of Paterson, NJ, just 20 miles west of New York, dined on the sounds of musical greats like Dizzy Gillespie, Peggy Lee, John Coltrane, Jimmy McGriff, Alvin Valentine and so many more. He played his first piano recital at 9, and at 15, when cats his age were learning how to charm young ladies, Davis was sneaking into local night clubs, hoping to charm the Hammond B3.

The Hammond’s big band grooves, thanks to masters and club mentors such as George Benson, Larry Young, Jr., Brother Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff and Dr. Lonnie Smith, worked their way into Davis DNA. Eventually his hands were walking and talking good music. But 24 years ago, Davis lost the ability to play with his hands. Caught in the motorized belt of a fast-moving container-making machine where he worked to supplement his music income, a finger was ripped from his left hand, which was also split diagonally.
