PROJECTS & PERFORMANCES
One Nation funk/soul/r&b band is up and running! Our Oakland-based 9-piece band, with a seriously funky rhythm section, a kickin' horn section, and some power vocals, has been practicing these past several months and is up and ready to gig. More booty-shaking details soon….
Rehearsing with the quartet Wheelhouse here in the South Bay, and we hope to start beating the pavement for gigs in 2014. Brady Fishler on drums, Chris Durbin on keys, Jerry Burdick on bass, and myself on vocals, churning out a few jazz standards and lots of fun arrangements of some contemporary pop/rock/r&b tunes. It's been a while for me playing jazz but I'm looking forward to it and having a great time getting my jazz chops up to par. I'm thankful & thrilled to be working with such talented and generous musicians!
OTHER EXCITING THINGS…
Got married last September & have been basking in the afterglow. :) My husband, Marcel, is a wonderful musician (and a fabulous personal trainer!), and together, we recorded a mini music sampler of original tunes and arrangements that was part of the wedding.
