Acclaimed Jazz Vocalist Nancy Kelly

Friday, August 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$25 – $35


Renowned jazz vocalist Nancy Kelly commands a global fan base with her timeless swinging style, transporting audiences back to an era where jazz was an authentic expression of raw emotion. With a vocal delivery that seamlessly blends old-school charm with fresh, innovative ideas, Kelly’s performances are a masterclass in phrasing, style, and swing. Hailing from Rochester, New York, she began her musical journey at the tender age of four, studying piano, clarinet, and voice at the esteemed Eastman School of Music.

Over her illustrious five-decade career, Kelly has perfected her trademark swing/bop style on stages across the United States and beyond, gracing venues from Singapore to Switzerland. A classically trained pianist turned jazz sensation, Kelly found her voice as the house singer at Jewel’s, a legendary jazz club in Philadelphia. Sharing the stage with icons like Betty Carter and Houston Person, she honed her craft and emerged as a dynamic force on the international jazz stage.

A fixture in New York City’s jazz circuit, Kelly has captivated audiences at renowned venues such as The Blue Note and Birdland, earning accolades including two “Best Female Jazz Vocalist” titles in the Down Beat Readers’ Poll. With six critically acclaimed albums under her belt, including the chart-topping “Live Jazz” and the widely praised “Remembering Mark Murphy,” Kelly continues to push the boundaries of jazz with her soulful sound and unwavering commitment to the art form.

Joining Nancy will be saxophone great Jerry Weldon (from the Harry Connick, Jr. Big Band), acclaimed organist Dino Losito, and native Buffalonian drummer Carmen Intorre, Jr. ( longtime drummer for legendary jazz guitarist Pat Martino.)
