    Thomasina Petrus has created a very special piece of musical cabaret celebrating the life and influence of Billie Holiday. With the unthinkable ability to capture the vocal and physical (abilities) of “Lady Day”, Thomasina takes us on a scintillating audible history that eventually ends with the discovery of Thomasina’s own incredibly unique and powerful voice. Her story of discovering Billie when she was young is a fascinating and highly entertaining piece of cabaret. Full of humor and emotional realness, audiences of any age come to understand the impact music and culture have on every generation and how we are all continually linked to our past. Thru a musical timeline of artists impacted by Billie Holiday including Bessie Smith, Louise Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James and more, Thomasina celebrates the history of each of these beautiful black women and men who inspired and influenced Jazz and it’s origins, while incorporating the American history that shaped (it).

    Layne Yost pays faithful tribute to the timeless, still-popular music of John Denver with a “Tribute to the Music of John Denver."

    Jon Shimoda plays bass to accompany Yost’s pure vocals and guitar playing in this homage to the music and the man. They capture the simple soul of Denver's music. Woven within the music are stories that give insight intoDenver's life and legacy.

    Denver is best known for songs like, “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “Annie’s Song,” “Sunshine on My Shoulders,” and “Thank God I’m a Country Boy,” along with other hits. A common theme in his lyrics was his enjoyment of the natural world. He was one of the most popular and best-selling acoustic artists of the 1970s, and his songs were hits on several charts, including the Billboard Hot 100, country and western, and adult contemporary. He earned four platinum albums and 12 gold albums during his career.[read more…]
