While you don’t see many female jazz instrumentalists, most of the genre’s notable vocalists have always been women. From Billie Holiday to Ella Fitzgerald to Sarah Vaughan to Anita O’Day to Diana Krall, it’s the feminine voice that has led the way at the microphone.
Songstress Kathy Lyons leads a band comprised of Gino Rosaria, JoJo Morris and Bryan Morris as MOJO salutes the most illustrious songbirds in jazz’s history. John Nodar will provide narration.
Entrance is $12, $8 for MOJO members with student and military rates available. A light jambalaya dinner is included and a cash bar is available.
