Jazz Tuesdays featuring Ramona Collins
May 1 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
Jazz Tuesdays is a weekly event featuring great jazz musicians from all over the state of Michigan. Each week brings in a different guest artist and a new experience.
We are thrilled to welcome back Ramona Collins for our May 1st show. A veteran singer and entertainer, Ramona was raised in Lansing, but now calls Toledo, OH, home. She made her first recording at age 16, and toured the country with funk, top 40, and show bands. She then became a mainstay at Toledo’s legendary Rusty’s Jazz Club, a regular stop on the jazz touring circuit. Ramona has performed with a who’s-who of the region’s top jazz musicians, has released multiple recordings under her own name, and maintains a busy performing career around the Midwest.
Ramona will be backed up by Jim David, piano, Jeff Pedraz, bass, and Jazz Tuesdays host Jeff Shoup on drums. The host band plays the first set at 7pm, followed by a jam session during which jazz musicians are welcome to sit-in.
Jazz Tuesdays is generously supported by Gregg Hill Publishing, the East Lansing Summer Solstice Jazz Festival, and INDe Drum Lab.
