Bowery Music Scene: Ioana & Soulshine @ the R Bar

R Bar, Feb. 6

Worth braving a frigid Saturday night, beautiful, dynamic singer Ioana Vintu and the Soulshine band electrified the Manhattan bar scene with Contemporary R&B, Classic Soul, and Blues rhythms. A recent arrival to the bar and club circuit, this what-appears-to-be, delicate collegiate, Ioana can not only sing a mellow tune, but catch you by surprise and belt out the blues with the rhapsodic power of a Janis Joplin.
