Enjoy live music in the Newport Marriott’s Plank Bar every Friday night! Extensive bourbon options are now on the menu, in addition to cocktails, food, beer, and wine. On Friday, February 28, we welcome Big Lux with special guest Sarah LuAnn Thompson.
Big Lux is the alter ego of Kevin Lowther II – a hip hop musician who will change the way you look at the instrument forever. Classically trained in his hometown of Westerly, RI, he has jazz, country and hip-hop influences that allow him to blend styles and provide fresh new takes on music of every genre. Constantly in motion, his shows are raw with a physicality that sets him apart from any other string player on earth. His versatility as a vocalist, beatboxer, and multi-instrumentalist keeps his shows fresh and audiences on their feet. He released his first cover album "Discovery" in 2017. His recently released EP "Major" is available on all streaming platforms. Sarah is the lead vocalist for The DreamCatchers and performs in a variety of musical acts in addition to the band. With powerful vocals and piano, she puts a unique spin on all your favorite songs.
