Songstress Rhonda Denet will present a love themed show of jazz and soul standards celebrating both Black History Month and Valentine’s Day.
Denet, the founder and primary vocalist of the Silver Fox Songs showcase series, will perform "Love: From Jazz to Soul" at the Teaneck Public Library on Friday, Feb. 14, at 10:30 a.m. as part of the Isabelle and Sol Hermalyn lecture series.
The show spans four decades with hits from the time when Ella Fitzgerald was dubbed, “The First Lady of Song” through the era when Aretha Franklin was crowned “The Queen of Soul.” In addition to tributes to Ella and Aretha, homage is paid to jazz greats Billie Holiday, Nancy Wilson and Nina Simone as well as soul divas Etta James, Martha Reeves, Mary Wells, and Gladys Knight.
Denet performs regularly throughout the New York metropolitan area with her band The Bad Cats, as the lead vocalist for The Kazz Music Orchestra and with several other regional projects. More information about Rhonda’s other projects is available at www.rhondadenet.com.
