This past Thursday (January 22nd), Mitchell Jarvis debuted in his first solo concert at 54 Below entitled, "Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living Everywhere." The show consisted entirely of Jacques Brel songs, and Jarvis cleverly used dialogue taken directly from interviews with the songwriter/performer himself, Jacques Brel, to bring all of the pieces together to tell a story. Not only did Jarvis encapsulate Brel's spirit, he poured his soul out onto the stage with every song that he, and his accompanying band, performed. Those attending watched in amazement as Jarvis belted out notes, and were completely entranced by his energetic personality.
The show ended with a well deserved standing ovation and, by watching his performance, it was clear that not only is Mitchell Jarvis' talent a force to be reckoned with, his passion and dedication to Brel's music was truly inspiring to everyone.
