Billie Holiday Project Valentine Concert!
OCA is pleased to welcome back The Billie Holiday Project for Valentines Day weekend! Led by talented songstress Stella Heath, who skillfully evokes the vocal style of legendary singer Billie Holiday, and featuring some of the Bay Areas finest musicians, this concert will deliver superb and thought-provoking entertainment. Stellas quintet brings back the electric and intimate feeling of seeing Lady Day live in a 1930s Jazz Club.
The band also revives some of the earlier and lesser known tunes she interpreted. Stories of Billies life and music are interspersed with the music.
The ensemble includes Sonoma County piano virtuoso Neil Angelo Fontana, Michael Fortunato on tenor saxophone and clarinet, Trevor Kinsel on upright bass and cornet, and drummer Spike Klein. www.billieholidayproject.com
Please join us for an unforgetable evening of classic Billie Holiday tunes delivered with style, nuance and emotion by the lovely Stella and her fine band as OCA celebrates Valentines Day, and Black History Month!
$20 advance/$25 at the door. Last years performance was sold out, so be sure to get your advance admission!
