The Heat Birds
Stella and the Heat Birds is an acoustic ensemble with an eclectic mix of vocal and musical styles. With instrumentation that is a hallmark of true Chicago Alt/Americana outfits, the Heat Birds incorporate clarinet, trombone, ukulele, accordion, and upright bass into their performances. Led by sultry jazz vocalist Stella, they seamlessly merge American musical styles of the past one hundred years and make them their own. They have performed at Scott Free's ALT Q festival, and have opened for Ruthie Foster at the Old Town School of Folk Music, and Etta James and Melissa Ferrick at Milwaukee Pridefest.
