Saxophonist Michael Lington Brings Soul to Spaghettini.

Nestled in the heart of Beverly Hills, Calif., Spaghettini and The Dave Koz Lounge offers world-class entertainment and inventive California cuisine with an Italian flare.

The venue’s calendar is filled with a wide array of talent but one musician is the one to watch at Spaghettini. Saxophonist Michael Lington brings his monthly show to life and wows the crowd with a blend of modern music and a retro-vibe.

A music industry veteran, Lington crafted an exuberant show filled with surprises and special guest vocalists.

“The first half of the show is my show then I start bringing up different guest artists,” Lington says. “They are friends of mine in the industry and I invite them down to do a couple songs. That way it has a new fresh spin to it.”

The vocal guests have included everyone from Elliot Yamin to Randy Crawford to pop diva, Taylor Dayne.

The acclaimed saxophonist is also promoting his latest work in the studio.

“I have a new album out called Soul Appeal. It is a soul-influenced album,” he says.

The show is a true thematic reflection of the album.

Lington adds, “My show is a soul based show. We have a full horn section and guest singers so it will be high energy, a lot of fun and just surprises.”

For his February show, the guest vocalist was Taylor Dayne. She was a wonderful surprise and left the crowd wanting more. Lington would not reveal who his upcoming guest vocalists would be.

“We are trying to out-do ourselves each time we do it. We have to keep it a little bit of a surprise,” he says.

Lington’s intimate yet lively show is quickly becoming a Los Angeles must see. The next opportunity to experience Lington and his gifted talented friends is on March 12th. The show is not to be missed, as you never know who will drop by.
