Gabrielle Lee: A Tin Pan Alley Celebration of Black History Month, feat. Phillip Attmore, Jennie Harney-Fleming, & More!
February 11, 2022
Join award-winning actress and vocalist Gabrielle Lee and friends—plus her swinging four-piece jazz band—for a rip-roaring evening of ragtime, blues and Tin Pan Alley jazz standards. This is the music that made legends of singers like Ada “Bricktop” Smith, Florence Mills, Lena Horne and Ethel Waters—not to mention stars like Bert Williams, George Walker and Paul Robeson. Gabrielle and friends groove to the music of masters such as Shelton Brooks, James P. Johnson, Turner Layton and Fats Waller, with “Darktown Strutters Ball,” “Some of These Days,” “He May Be Your Man But He Comes to See Me Sometimes,” “A Hundred Years From Today,” and plenty more great Tin Pan Alley hits.
Gabrielle Lee has starred in A Blackbird Legends Cabaret and All Night Strut, and appeared theatrically as Bricktop as well as in title roles in productions of Once On This Island, Ain’t Misbehavin’, Smokey Joe’s Café, Blackbirds of Broadway, Dreamgirls, and more. As a vocalist, Gabrielle has worked with, among others, the New York Pops, Cab Calloway Orchestra, Ray Charles Orchestra, Harry Belafonte, Natalie Cole and Steely Dan.
