6:00 PM - 9:00 PM: ELNAH JORDAN EXPERIENCE
Elnah Jordan, vocals; Frank Seeberger, guitar; Beth Wulff, keyboard; Charles Mack, bass and Jamael Nance, drums
Vocalist Elnah Jordan, a well-seasoned performer specializing in jazz, gospel and blues, commenced her career in the streets of San Francisco and was awarded 1983 Jazz Vocalist of the Year! She performed the role of the legendary Bessie Smith for 2-1/2 years in “The Evolution of the Blues” written and produced by Jon Hendricks of the scat team of Lambert, Hendricks and Ross. Later, she starred in “Street Dreams”, an Off Broadway musical drama which afforded the prestigious Cabaret Gold awards for her performance. Elnah has had the honor to open for Gil Scott Heron and Bobby Blue Bland in the San Francisco Club forum. Elnah moved to the Seattle area in the early 90s, which landed well for re-introduction of her roots in gospel music, the very essence of her inspiration!
9:00 PM - 12 AM: STACY JONES BAND
Stacy Jones, harmonica, piano, guitar & vocals; Jeff Menteer, lead guitar & vocals; Rick Bowen, drums & vocals and Tom Jones, bass
Stacy Jones is the winner of the 2015 IMEA (International Music and Entertainment Association) award for Best Blues Song “Can’t Do Nothin’ Right” off her newest album Whiskey, Wine, & Water. She is continually nominated for “Best of the Blues” awards in songwriting, performance, harmonica, guitar and winning vocalist of the year. She has performed at the Chicago Blues Festival, SXSW, juke joints in Mississippi, river boats in California, headlined festivals, and shared stages with Elvin Bishop, Charlie Musselwhite, Lee Oskar, and many other legends. Her music has been described as “A Whiskey & Water baptism that laces blues and rock edges.” “With her feet firmly planted in roots based music, Stacy Jones pays homage to the blues but experiments by mixing in some mild-Americana and subtle country licks. Dynamic vocals fueled by powerful lyrics.” “The rolling thunder blues of Howlin’ Wolf mixed with the honesty of Lucinda Williams.”
