Blackwood to show off vocal stylings

Jazz vocalist and former soap opera actor Steve Blackwood will perform tonight from 7 to 9:30 at Oregano Pizzeria & Ristorante in Newburyport.

Blackwood sings jazz and blues, with a little scat thrown in. Now a Newburyport resident, he has performed at nightclubs across the country for the past 30 years. He is perhaps best known for playing the bumbling henchman Bart on “Days of our Lives,” where he occasionally showed off his singing talent.

Oregano is located at 16 Pleasant St. There is no cover.
