“A bloody good time
The charming, ukulele-sporting Bliss Blood brings some jazzy tunes to The Castello Plan, a newish Ditmas Park wine
bar, for an evening of good food and good music this month.
The Bushwick-based singer has made a niche for herself playing 1920s and ’30s tunes, either in the Hawaiian-tinged
The Moonlighters, the blues band Delta Dreambox or original duo with guitarist Al Street, Evanescent.
She is quickly becoming a regular at the Plan, playing early 20th century jazz and some originals that show off her showmanship.
“I like going way back and reading about performers in the ’20s,” said Blood, who’s been playing her uke since before it was fashionable. “For instance, Bessie Smith could look out in the crowd and hypnotize them.”
