Kim Nalley LIVE Thursday, Sept 10 at the 9:20 Special!
- The 9:20 Special is pleased to present internationally acclaimed
chanteuse, Kim Nalley, as a part of San Francisco's pre-SFLX Kickoff
Tickets to this evening are $15 ($12 for students with valid ID) in
order to support the band and extra sound equipment needed for the
night. Students enrolled one of our classes will pay an extra $5 fee to
support the band. Tickets only available at the door.
(Please note that while SFLX will have a registration table present,
this evening is not a part of the weekend package and is an extra party
being thrown by The 9:20 Special to help celebrate all that is great
about San Francisco Lindy Hop.)
Recently named one of the "Ten Most Influential African Americans in the
Bay Area," Kim Nalley has an international reputation as one of world's
best jazz & blues vocalists.
Kim Nalley, in looks and presence is often compared to Billie Holiday,
but vocally she packs a 3 1/2 octave range that can go from operatic to
gritty blues on a dime, projection that can whisper a ballad yet is
capable of filling a room with no microphone, and the ability to scat
blistering solos without ever losing the crowd's interest or the intense
swing. Her singing is most reminiscent of the former Basie Singers Helen
Humes & Joe Williams with a dash of Dinah Washington and occasional nods
to Ella, Sarah and Nina Simone.
