Wed Sept 26: 6-8pm — Lavay Smith and her Swingtet (Swing/Blues/Jazz) — Season Finale
Lavay Smith is internationally recognized as The Queen Of Classic Jazz & Blues in the authentic style of the 1940's and 1950's.
“Lavay is wonderful! She and her band are a breath of fresh air. It is so unlikely and so exciting that a band would appear on the scene today that plays classic jazz and blues so well and so convincingly.”
---Johnny Otis
“The San Francisco-based Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers are a notable exception to the retro-swing norm. The saucy vocalist and her eight-piece crew actually know the difference between jump music and bland R&B in corny suits. They have been a working unit since 1989 ...and sound as tight as the legendary musicians they choose to emulate.”
---Bob Blumenthal, Boston Globe
“A lush vocal style recalling both Bessie Smith and Dinah Washington.”
----Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times
“Splendid vocals and exemplary material.”
---Frank-John Hadley, Downbeat
“Hands-down the best thing to come out of the jump/swing revival...the gal can sing her tail off.”
---Paul de Barros, Seattle Times
“First-rate vocals...magnificent arrangements...the best combo in town.”
— Phil Elwood, San Francisco Examiner
