There was an amazing roster all set to entice the audience’s musical taste buds from jazz, blues, soul, pop, and gospel music. It hasn’t even been a week since the wrap-up of the second episode, but Chillout Productions are already back with more. Fans are ecstatic as the organizers reveal the veteran rhythm & blues heroes Nine Below Zero Big Band and singer-songwriter JoAnna Lee will perform live on Episode 3 this Friday, 15 December 2017.
Registrations for free admissions and table pre-bookings will start today, visit www.jazzgardenseries.com. As expected, the second episode saw thousands of attendees; it was fun packed and another great success. It’s no surprise for Episode 3 to continue the streak especially when they have one of Britain’s most respected R&B and blues bands on the bill. The band, famous for their no-frills, punchy and direct approach, created an exciting new Nine Below Zero Big Band sound after an impressive live debut in 2016. Joining them is musician JoAnna Lee, who has just released her debut album, So Free, July of this year. She has been paving the way for her songs to be emblazoned upon the lips and hearts of fans in Texas, and now the world over. Another local act will be announced soon to complete the full lineup. RECAP: Episode 2 started off with the charismatic Dubai-based Irish jazz and theatre artiste Anita Williams, who leveraged a strong, captivating stage presence, drawing the crowd into their natural, enchanting and catchy performances. Her band was outstanding; the artists had the audience on their feet right from the top. One of the highlights of the night was the session by soul trumpeter Lin Rountree and pop/R&B chanteuse Beth Griffith. The duo delivered a fantastic show performing music from original compositions to renditions of various popular songs. Without a doubt, these two multitalented artists were great together. The event ended on a high, with the princess of rhythm & blues Sharrie Williams. She is among the most powerful female vocalists on today’s scene. Her reputation for outstanding vocal performances was apparent; she effortlessly handled the whole spectrum, from a whisper to a scream. Her live shows were incredible and it was easy to see why the organizers selected her once again, making this her third concert in the region.
