BELLE PLAINE"This Is A Big Deal" Party and CD Launch
with guest: Julia And Her Piano
Voted Regina's 'Best Singer', Belle Plaine's brand of jazz fusion unites swing with vintage country and feminine pop.
"If Patsy Cline and Blossom Dearie had a love child she would sing like Belle Plaine. Belle's voice is old timey and jazzy. It has twang, crystal bells and swing. You listen to this voice, and all of a sudden your cheatin' heart has a very dry martini in hand, and you're hearing something both timeless and brand new." - Kelley Jo Burke, host of CBC's SoundXchange
Belle is an acoustic guitar-playing, storytelling vocalist who Grant Lawrence declared his "musical discovery" at the 2010 Regina Folk Festival. Audiences will hear three-part harmonies and experience a set list that includes Belle's original music, sensual jazz standards such as Fever and Bye Bye Blackbird, in addition to country classics such as Mamas Don"t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys.
The full band: Elizabeth Curry, Jeremy Sauer, Kris Craig, Jody Mario, and Cheney Lambert from Regina's Pile of Bones Brass Band on trumpet!
$15. available at Paper Umbrella (and at Mysteria Gallery after Jan 24) or at door
