The Shari Vandermolen Quartet: Friday, June 23

The Shari Vandermolen Quartet: Friday, June 23, Doors: 7:30. Start: 8:00 $20. Shari Vandermolen, an award-winning local performer and vocalist, has been entertaining audiences in the GTA and southwestern ShariVQuartet02_17Ontario for the last 15 years.  Prominent in the Hamilton arts community, Shari has performed in numerous musical theatre productions – recently wining acclaim for her portrayal of “Norma Desmond” in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Sunset Boulevard.
This passion is only equal to her love of jazz and the blues. Shari makes a song her own, giving it emotional depth and edge by imbuing the best of contemporary influence into classic songs; paying homage to such legendary vocalists as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Etta James, Nina Simone and Sara Vaughan.
The Shari V Quartet features Mohawk College Jazz program alumni Steve McRae on piano, James Gannett on bass, and Michael Yates on drums.  (Shari Vandermolen’s debut CD is available through iTunes as well as other music streaming outlets and features these three talented musicians as members of her 6-piece band Quarter To Nine.)
“She takes a song and gives it emotional depth and edge.  She not only sings it magnificently she acts the heart and soul out of it….” The Hamilton Spectator “…hear Vandermolen make jelly of your emotions with her voice and her art… one example is Stormy Weather… I barely weathered that storm intact.” – View Magazine
Join Shari Vandermolen and her band for an evening of jazz and blues that will make you want to snuggle up to that special someone in oh-so-many ways. www.Q29.ca    http://swingline.webs.com/
