Great review from Tripadvior….Isis Theatre is the place for live music

Isis Theatre is a family owned and managed business. How we got to the point of opening a restaurant and music hall as a family is a little difficult to explain, and may be even more difficult to understand.

It has been, and continues to be, an interesting and memorable experience. Throughout this process, folks have asked a number of times for us to describe what exactly Isis is. We each answer this a little differently, but in the end we expect the food and music to a be a reflection of that which we, our friends, and family enjoy. All the while, our ultimate goal being to create a good place to eat that inspires conversation, camaraderie, energy, and has great food and seriously good music. It is, and will continue to be, “a work in progress.”

 

SHOW ANNOUNCED! The P-LO PROJECT at the Isis Theatre Sept. 1 8 PM

Tremendous musicality, versatility and the ability to entertain everyone from the casual listener to the most discriminating improvised music aficionados.  These qualities have become the trademark of South Florida musician and entertainer Patrick Lopez.  With performances that captivate and inspire his audiences, it’s obvious that he knows where music has been, where music is going, and perhaps most importantly, he’s not going to leave anyone behind on the journey.  His rhythmically charged trumpet solos, featuring unique and spontaneous melodic fragments combined seamlessly with more traditional bebop runs show that he’s done his homework.  And it’s that intense dedication to music that has given him the opportunity to perform around the globe, with European trips that include Switzerland, Germany, France and Iceland, among others.  Put Patrick Lopez behind a keyboard, and yet another pleasant surprise awaits the listener.  It quickly becomes apparent that he’s just as comfortable there, putting his own unique harmonic spin on everything from Pop and Rock to R&B and Latin Jazz.  Listening to his original compositions is where you really start to get a sense of Patrick’s approach to music.  Complex harmonies sound natural and flow together flawlessly, while simple phrases and ideas take on deep meaning.  Intense, chromatic trumpet solos suddenly seem to fit with perfection.  Everything just comes together, forming a musical work that everyone can enjoy.  It’s this type of approach that has people eagerly anticipating his newest artistic concept, THE P-LO PROJECT, featuring his own arrangements of jazz standards with an electronic- based dance sound.  Rest assured that Patrick Lopez will always be pushing his devotion and love of music to new heights of expression.
