Lisa FerraroSeven superbly talented women, with hearts as big as their voices, band together to raise money for a sister musician impacted by cancer. Don't you dare miss this astounding evening of music when divas Lisa Ferraro, Tammy Hall, Denise Perrier, Connie Champagne, Faith Winthrop, Branice McKenzie, and Kitt Weagant take the stage to raise funds for fellow musician Erika Luckett, who is currently battling ovarian cancer, and The International Center for Integrative Medicine (ICIM). This will help cancer patients to pay for integrative medicine treatments to minimize the negative effects of chemo therapy. Erika will make a special appearance at tonight's show, which also features bassist Ruth Davies, Kent Bryson on drums, Ellen Seeling on Trumpet, and Kristen Strom on sax and flute.
 
Lisa, the evening's organizer and host, is a distinctive, soulful jazz vocalist hailing from Pittsburgh, PA. Singer-songwriter and innovative guitarist, Erika makes music that lies in a rich crossing between flamenco and folk, jazz and pop, Latin and soul. A truly versatile pianist, Tammy captivates lovers of jazz, Brazilian, or classical music with beautifully understated virtuosity. Blessed with a rich contralto voice, Denise has spent most of her thirty-year career performing jazz and blues in the San Francisco Bay Area and touring Europe, Latin America, and Asia. A musical theater actress specializing in portrayals of Judy Garland, Connie brings powerful vocals and a larger-than-life stage presence. Since her days as the house singer at San Francisco's legendary hungry i, Faith has been an integral thread of the Bay Area's cultural fabric, founding the famed Glide Memorial choir and teaching at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Mills College, and the Jazzschool, as well as touring the world performing in her trademark soulful, elegant style. Branice offers an incredible four-octave voice and magnificent song stylings, as heard on the theatrical stage and international tours with Harry Belafonte, Roberta Flack, and Dianne Reeves. A consummate performer, jazz vocalist Kitt uses her distinctive, sultry purr to embrace her audience in thrilling warmth and a deep range of emotion. Ruth, on standup bass, and Kent, on drums, round out this amazing musical lineup.
