A crowd-pleasing mix of jazz, blues, and R&B! Whether for listening or dancing, this dynamic group will have you humming and toe-tapping. Award-winning jazz vocalist/songwriter Jean Calvert fronts a group of uber-talented musicians that includes keyboard, bass, drums, and other instruments, such as saxophone, can be added if the budget allows.
Drawing on life in the 60s and 70s, Calvert performs her own renditions of the music that defined her: James Brown, the Impressions, Dionne Warwick, the Carpenters, Joe Simon, Sam Cooke, the Mamas and the Papas, Little Anthony and the Imperials, the Beatles, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Neil Sedaka, Carole King.
But Calvert was also heavily influenced by the music of her parents' generation: Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald. Their shows were on our TV, their albums on our hi-fi. Calvert loved the crooning, the elegant gowns, the debonair tuxes, the choreography, all the touches of a grander age of music.
With her expansive musical experience, Calvert is very much sought after to play in restaurants, night clubs, theatre shows, and at private events.
This is a MUST HIRE group!
