Lisa Biales “Blues Meets Jazz at a Cabaret”

September 27, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:10 pm

Dubbed the “Belle of the Blues” for her crystal pure voice and charming stage presence, Biales has released eight albums to date, and her latest, aptly named “Belle of the Blues,” was nominated for a Blues Blast award for Acoustic Album of the Year. With the voice of an angel, the charm of a southern belle, and the playfulness and daring of a little girl riding a bicycle with no hands, Lisa strides into various musical territories with wild abandonment.

As a storyteller, singer, songwriter, and actress, Lisa guides the audience on a musical journey from Blues to Jazz, performing some of her original music, as well as the music of Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Bessie Smith, Memphis Minnie, Nina Simone, and Etta James. Lisa wraps the music of all of these influential women into one intoxicating performance.
