San Jose native Amy Dabalos has established herself as a mainstay in the Bay Area music scene. She possesses a unique mutability that complements the various styles she explores as a vocalist on the bandstand. Her voice is both powerful and luminescent: imbued with influence from legends Sarah Vaughan and Nancy Wilson. Elements of soul, R&B, and pop decorate her distinctive repertoire, as inspired by contemporary artists Stevie Wonder, Esperanza Spalding, and Lianne La Havas. Dabalos has been a featured artist at venues throughout the Bay Area, including City Lights Theater, Cafe Stritch, Studio Grand Oakland, Cafe Pink House, San Pedro Square Market, and the Continental Bar & Lounge.
Five Points Cocktail Bar is one of downtown San Jose’s brightest new spots for drinks and conversation. You’ll find delicious craft cocktails, distinctive local brews and limited menu of tasty bar bites, along with great music each Tuesday evening, curated by SJZ.
