Jazzin’ Things Up! starring Kelli Grant the Queen of Swing
April 12 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
“Jazzin’ Things UP!” chronicles “Jazz” southern birth and its decade of popularity with the fad of flappers and raccoon coats known as the ”Roarin’ 20‘s”, or the “Jazz Age”. In a magnificent story line Kelli takes her audience on a trip cross country telling the wonderful history of Jazz from its inception in the cotton field of the south to Vaudeville and to Ol’ Blue Eye and the Rat Pack. She salutes its creators and performers; Armstrong, the Duke, the Count, the King of Jazz, the Jazz Singer, the King of Swing and a Las Vegas Icon known as the King of the Lounge Acts whose show stopping tune crowned Benny Goodman the King of Swing. You will hear how a Vaudeville brother team came up with the term, Jazz and discover its original spelling. The Queen of Swing has been apart of the Pop/Jazz scene since her first CD but maybe not a full fledged member as her career has crossed many boundaries being recognized, charting and listed in publications around the world in multiple genres: Blues, Jazz, Rock-a-Billy, R&B and Western Swing.
