Please send me a message on our CONTACT page about booking our unique band. How would I describe what we do? Well so many words come to mind like Vegas supper club act, "big band era", American Songbook, classic jazz and saucy, sexy fun! Louie Prima and Keely Smith, Steve and Eydie come to mind! Rebecca's humor is reminiscent of Joan Rivers and Phyllis Diller with her whimsical outfits and bawdy style. Old-time sexy, marital fun on stage, audience interaction with sophisticated song stylings! We have performed at clubs, "Sinatra" parties, dance bands and elegant cocktail music for events and parties. We can add a horn section and drums for a big, big sound as well! We can be the "showcase" act or provide soothing, sweet jazzy sounds to any club or event!
