Starring local singing sensation; Georgette Fry and her twelve piece band
Featuring Shout Sister! Friday April 29th at 7:30 pm at the Grand Theatre
Jazz, blues, soul--the legendary Etta James sang it all--and
who better to take us through her songbook than Canada's own 2013 CMA
Singer of the Year, Georgette Fry? Backed by her excellent 11 piece
band, with 50 members of the local chapters of her Shout Sister! choir
providing gospel harmonies, Fry's retrospective will be filling the
Regina Rosen Auditorium.
Like Etta James, Fry has a big voice that seamlessly glides across
musical genres. Her love of good music does not sit solely with one
particular iteration, making this retrospective a powerful work in its
own right. Georgette never needs to imitate; she brings her own solid,
sensitive self to these treasured songs and honours Etta's legacy.
Fry's excellent band are all-stars from her hometown, Kingston. Jon
Stewart (sax) arranged the music for the show. He plays on stage with
James Wannamaker (sax), Janet MacRae (trumpet), Dave Barton (guitar),
Zak Colbert (bass), Ken Hall (organ), Alain McCann (piano), Duncan Holt
(drums) and Anna Robertson (Background vocals).
Rounding out this already spectacular lineup is Shout Sister!, offering
gospel backup during the finale.
