Valentine’s Celebration Show!
Nobody plays classic jump-blues and jazz with more punch and authority than Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers. Fronted by the sultry Smith, an alluring singer whose style draws on Dinah Washington, Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday and Little Esther Phillips, the band performs tasty arrangements of tunes from the 1930’s ’40s, and ’50s, as well as original numbers for fans across the US, Canada and Europe. The seven-piece Red Hot Skillet Lickers, led by arranger and pianist Chris Siebert, features a rogue’s gallery of robustly swinging soloists who cut their teeth with everyone from Big Joe Turner to Ray Charles. From Bessie Smith to Duke Ellington.
Romance is in the air!! This concert will be in celebration of Valentine’s Day, so bring whom you choose and enjoy this unique musical evening!
