Grace Kelly & New York Voices
Singer, saxophonist, and songwriter/composer Grace Kelly plays with the heart and passion of an old soul yet with the genre-bending zest and energy of a 26-year-old. The 2018 John Lennon Songwriting Contest Grand Prize winner (country genre) has appeared regularly in the house band for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert under Jon Batiste and was highlighted on screen as a jazz soloist in the Emmy-nominated Amazon series BOSCH .
The critically acclaimed vocal group New York Voices has refined their musical story to a high art. They are known for their close-knit voicings, inspired arrangements and unparalleled vocal blend. Their chameleon-like musicianship allows them to move seamlessly from setting to setting, be it orchestral/big band to the intimate trio lineup.
- Friday, April 26 from 5:30pm-2:00am
- Downtown on Barstow Street and Pablo Center at the Confluence
The Eau Claire Jazz Festival celebrates the true culture of jazz as Downtown Eau Claire transforms into a jazz nightclub scene. 52nd Street is a re-creation of the historic 52nd Street of New York City, where jazz greats like Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, and Louis Armstrong sat in with different ensembles in a variety of nightclubs, simply because they loved to play jazz. Over 50 bands play at indoor and outdoor venues along Barstow Street in downtown Eau Claire, featuring a variety of music styles, including ragtime, blues, acoustic, big band, indie, funk, soul, pop, hip-hop and more. It's an exciting night of live music downtown - you never know who might bring their horn to sit in! Join over 3,000 people to enjoy this once a year party!
