Integriti started the night off with a set ranging from jazz to blue grass, and even hinted at some Go-Go! The set represented Billie's music well, but the arrangements offered a lot of room for expansion and exploration. She even got the audience singing, and they didn't sound too bad!
Then Rochelle came on stage like a Queen, and we were her Knights. She led the band so effortlessly, and carried an amazing presence on stage. I especially enjoyed the Ballad duet w/ Mark and her funky arrangement of I Loves You Porgy.
Lena Seikaly. Wow wow wow!! Aside from being a flawless and amazingly organized Musical Director, she sings with an emotional presence that is unreal. Even after all these years of knowing her, I am blown away every time I have the fortune of hearing her sing. Go LS!!
Christie Dashiell. Christie Dashiell! CHRISTIE DASHIELL!!!! She often times leaves me speechless. And this is one of those times. Unstoppable!
Thanks to Betty Scott and everyone at AMP for making all of this happen!! Bravo everybody, what a memorable night of music that was!!
