Milford Arts Council, in association with Pantochino Productions Inc. presents the second season of Nite Spot Nights at the Center for the Arts on Railroad Avenue in Downtown Milford. All performances were sold out last year and we expect to do the same this coming season!
Nite Spot Nights offers six ‘night club’ style evenings of live music. Evoking the feeling of New York City cabaret rooms, the series is a varied collection of musical performances by some of the city’s hottest acts. To enhance the experience, the Milford Center for the Arts will be set with tables and chairs inviting patrons to bring along the food and drink of their choice.
“We are very excited to be working with Pantochino in welcoming such amazing talent to Milford. You no longer have to head to the city, we are bringing the city to you!”, said executive director Paige Miglio. “This is the perfect program to expand what we offer,” said Bert Bernardi of Pantochino. “We love bringing something unique and different to our audiences—it’s what we do,” he added.
All live music performances start at 8 pm, unless otherwise noted. Tickets are $30 for all shows.

Four years ago this month, Amy, Hilary, and Melissa began singing together in three-part harmony. We had not yet dubbed ourselves “DUCHESS” (in fact, we hadn’t really even considered the possibility that this fun, one-off gig performing Boswell and Andrews Sisters transcriptions might lead to something more), but we were ready to laugh, sing, and have a blast. To our surprise and delight, the packed room at Greenwich Village’s 55 bar greeted us with warmth and enthusiasm, and lo!…a trio was born.
A vocal trio in the great tradition of the Boswell Sisters, DUCHESS has quickly gained a reputation for providing tight harmonies and big fun at their shows. Vocalists Amy Cervini, Hilary Gardner and Melissa Stylianou join forces and voices to become, DUCHESS. For more on Duchess Trio, go to http://www.duchesstrio.com.
Devin’s music and natural charisma speaks for itself. Energy and exuberance, complimented by a classic sophistication that would appeal to even the most discerning palette, he combines the swagger of a bygone era with his own charismatic brand of urban jazz. Every evening with him promises a scintillating journey of smooth vocals, elegant beats and a seductive air of elegance that leaves his audience spellbound.
“Blessed with his own sound, I can’t imagine a fan not taken hostage by an earful of Bing! Devin must be seen live to capture the excitement he generates!” – Huffington Post “Smooth as a Martini.” – New York Times For more about Devin Bing, go to https://www.devinbing.com/.
“Amy Lynn’s mesmerizing voice is just as brassy as the horn section behind her, and she channels its power into an ardent belt that is masterfully controlled. She wails, riffs and screlts (screamed-belt) with precision and artistic clarity, using these musical flourishes to empower her performance and heighten the depth of the emotions in the music and lyrics.” – Broadway World For more on Amy Lynn and the Honeymen, go to http://amylynnandthegunshow.com.
