HOT SUMMER NIGHTS: Duchess
Celebrate Independence Day with Duchess, featuring patriotic tunes and great American gems from the Andrews Sisters and Boswell Sisters, such as “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen,” “Heebie Jeebies,” and more.
Sure-footed swing, sweet-toned harmony and natural charm are embodied in this trio, featuring Amy Cervini, Hilary Gardner and Melissa Stylianou. Duchess has played at Dizzy’s, Lincoln Center Out-Of-Doors, Monterey Jazz Festival and more, quickly earning a reputation for beautiful singing and BIG fun!
“Three fine singers...join together in swinging harmony to whip up music that traffics in delight….” — The New Yorker
