Standing Room Only – Please call the box office for tickets
Hosted by Danny Marks
Ask a woman blues singer who they admire, who influenced them the most, who is their favourite? Etta James is the answer. No other female blues singer strikes such a unanimous and resounding response. “Tell Mama”, “I’d Rather Go Blind”, “At Last” were some of her signature songs in a career that began at the age of 14 and spanned decades until her death in Los Angeles in 2012. This night is dedicated to the soul power of one of the greats of our time, Etta James. Guest vocalists include Crystal Shawanda, Cheryl Lescom, Quisha Wint and Shahi Teruko all accompanied by Hamilton’s favourite blues pianist Jesse O’Brien.
