“Hands-down the best thing to come out of the jump/swing revival…the gal can sing her tail off” Paul de Barros, Seattle Times

Lavay Smith is internationally recognized as The Queen Of Classic Jazz & Blues in the authentic style of the 1940’s & 1950’s. Her singing was influenced by Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington, Bessie Smith, Little Esther Phillips and other legendary greats, but remains essentially and uniquely her own. She has played all over the world with her band, the Red Hot Skillet Lickers, at events such as The Chicago Jazz Festival, the Monterey Jazz Festival, the Playboy Jazz Festival and at Lincoln Center in New York City.

This will be the 43rd concert present by the Vallejo Jazz Society since its inception. Refreshments, including beer and wine, will be available for purchase.
