 Art & Music Night returns to Tony & Al’s Restaurant with featured musicians Laurel and Nicole Wagner Thursday, September 17th from 6pm to 9pm. Tony & Al’s features an Italian cuisine and full bar with outdoor seating on their back patio.

Laurel Wagner, a 19 year old singer-songwriter from Melrose, released her first single in June 2018, entitled Velvet Lips (Playground Upside-Down), followed by her first EP album, Perfume Jacket. Laurel’s original song, “3 am” from her newest, full-length album, “Nostalgia” was featured on a local radio show.

Laurel’s main instrument is the concert and tenor ukuleles, along with baritone uke and guitar. Laurel is entirely independent in both her writing, composing, performing, recording, mixing, producing and mastering all of her original music.
