Whitney James Quintet
Lemon Bay Playhouse is delighted to have the Whitney James Quintet for the third performance in our Showcase Production series. Vocalist Whitney James studied musical theater and opera before committing to jazz, and her theatrical background has served her well. She doesn’t just sing a tune—she creatively engages it. Every time she approaches a melody and a lyric, she finds a new way to phrase them, shape them, highlight a word or a few notes that shade the meaning and make the music richer. Her sense of time and pacing make her a consummate musician’s singer—she knows how to work with a band, instead of asking it to merely back her.
Accompanying Whitney are guitarist LaRue Nickelsen, saxophonist Jeremy Powell, drummer Mark Feinman, and bassist Alejandro Arenas.
Tickets are $18.00 and may be purchased by calling 941-475-6756 or visiting the Box Office between 10:00am and 2:00pm Monday through Friday, or by going online at www.lemonbayplayhouse.com.
