Michelle Willson returns with her All Star swing and blues band. A gifted swing and jump blues vocalist, Michelle Willson -- a native of the Boston area -- began singing as a teenager, often fronting bands quixotically named after nonexistent members (for example, Mimi Jones and Alex Clayton). As a solo performer, she organized a well-received tribute to her singing idols Dinah Washington and Ruth Brown, then joined the band Evil Gal; again working solo in 1994, Willson issued her debut LP, Evil Gal Blues, followed in 1996 by So Emotional. Wake Up Call marked her first release in the new millennium.

"Nancy Hildegarde started performing at the age of eight in her father’s church. Nancyattended the prestigious Julliard Conservatory of Music in New York, studying with the principal trumpet player of the New York Philharmonic. In those days orchestras were closed to women, so Nancy entered the jazz world. After touring for several years with big bands including the world famous International Sweethearts of Rhythm she returned to New York City and formed several men’s combos. Nancy appeared for a season on WATV. For the past twenty years she has made her home in Rockport, Ma and the West Indies and performed regular shows on Caribbean radio. Nancy is very happy to have found a new home at Chianti’s Tuscan Restaurant and Jazz Lounge in Beverly, Massachusetts. This is a show you don’t want to miss."
Nancy Hildegarde: “Playing,singing, and entertaining keeps me young at age 86.”
