Verdi Club: Jellyroll returns to the Woodchopper’s Ball
February 20 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Born out of the swing revival of the 1990’s, Jellyroll has forged a sound that is at once assured and fine-tuned with freshly conceived arrangements, yet firmly steeped in the traditional jazz, swing, and blues forms. Charismatic and smokey-voiced with impeccable phrasing and fiery blues overtones, bandleader and vocalist Belinda Blair “is one of those rare artists who, as soon as she begins to sing, transforms the room. Her stage presence and vocal mastery transcend artistic mediums.” (San Francisco Chronicle)
