Shari Vandermolen_0112_enrcSaturday July 13 at 8 pm, cover$10 (ca; 905-543-8512 to reserve). An intimate evening of song with vocalist Shari Vandermolen, and Steve McCrae on piano. We are long-time fans of Shari, and we are delighted she will be here.
Shari writes: “It was the intimate vibe of our very own Artbar that inspired me to bring you this very intimate evening of song accompanied by Steve McRae, an accomplished jazz pianist and member of Quarter To Nine, who has played with me for the past 4 years. Tonight we will leave the sound of the big band behind and bring you some of our favourite jazz/torch and blues standards, and try out some new pieces.”
Shari sings with her own 5-piece jazz band Quarter To Nine and has been invited to collaborate on a number of other larger jazz and swing projects during this past year. Fans of musical theatre have been treated to Shari’s unique vocal stylings in productions in and around Hamilton for the past 8 years. “She takes a song and gives it emotional depth and edge. She not only sings it magnificently she acts the heart and soul out of it.” Gary Smith, The Hamilton Spectator.
