Divas of Jazz
Ok, so one of those pictures is actually NOT one of the Divas of Jazz, but I could see how you could think that! Its a picture of us at the performance and the other women are the real Divas of Jazz.
Friday night, we went to the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) to watch 6 amazing women (plus other guest performers) for 4 solid hours for 15 bucks! You just can't beat that and I will miss getting such amazing (not just good... amazing) music for little to nothing. Again, great venue- audience was small and intimate and the sound is great in this place. Bob French was the MC for the night and was getting a bit rowdy talking about "Nagin, go back to Houston... " and some other comments that were not really appropriate seeing how there were little kids in the audience. Nonetheless, he was funny and a good time was had by all.
My favorite part of the night was when all the ladies got together on stage at the end to perform "Down by the Riverside". Everyone got up out of their seats and danced until they kicked us out!
