January 19th with Vocalist Rhenda Fearrington! Join us for the Songs of Roberta Flack and Nina Simone.
Rhenda Fearrington has travelled the world in the last 30+ years as a Jazz performer and back-up singer for Roberta Flack & MTUME. After performing with many greats such as Lou Rawls, Peabo Bryson, Lionel Ritchie and The Commodores and even Chaka Kahn to name just a few, she has turned her interests back to promoting Philadelphia Jazz.
After relocating to Pennsylvania from New York, to raise her sons, Rhenda launched a One Woman Show: "Rhenda's Feel Sooo Good Tour," that she has performed in schools across the Mid-Atlantic.Through interactive storytelling and singing, she delivered a message to children, encouraging them to "Feel Sooo Good," about themselves!" For the last 10 years, she has been a Philadelphia Jazz Advocate on the periphery, but is now taking that focus full tilt, as she launches a blog that helps musicians manage and develop their own business. Her mission is to bring the importance of the Philadelphia Jazz culture and it's contribution to America to a much wider audience; using her social media persona the, "Sista In The Front," as she continues on her path as a singer.
Rhenda will be joined by Dan Hanrahan on guitar, Nimrod Speaks on bass, and Harry "Butch" Reed on drums.
Doors open at 6:00pm in the Univest Room. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door for adults and $10 in advance and $15 at the door for students/children.
