2017 marks the centenary of America’s “First Lady of Song,” the incomparable Miss Ella Fitzgerald. We honor Ella’s remarkable legacy, and those of her contemporaries with performances by two outstanding guest vocalists. Get ready to swing to the passionate vocals of Marva Hicks and the sultry stylings of vocalist/bassist Nicki Parrot.
You can expect Marva Hicks to convey the same passion and feeling that Ella always gave to her songs but she will not stop at doing an impression. It’s the spirit of love and happiness that Ella brought through her music that Marva Hicks wishes to convey.
In addition to her own personal tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, Nicki Parrott will touch on those often forgotten singers of the Jazz Age that made such an incredible impact upon the music world.
Read more about this upcoming concert from a well captured article from the Ohio Magazine.
