From Ella Fitzgerald to Etta James and Aretha Franklin to Peggy Lee; join us as we celebrate iconic female singers from over the years with "A-Tisket, A-Tasket," "At Last," "Respect" and more! You don’t want to miss special guest vocalist Erin Krebs with her sultry combination of jazz and bebop scat, belting out the blues. In 2016, Jazziz Magazine wrote that Erin Krebs "may be a best-kept secret of her native Wisconsin." It seems the word is out, as this dynamic performer is well on her way to becoming one of Wisconsin's premier and most treasured vocalists. Her performances exude confidence and a passion for life that audiences instantly recognize as genuine and heartfelt. Recently, Erin was awarded the WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) Female Vocalist of the Year for 2019 and in 2018!
