Tickets still available to 'Howlin' at the Highlands' concert
The "Howlin' at the Highlands" season is drawing to a close, with the season's final concert featuring Rosemary and Frankie Chavez on Sunday, Sept. 13. Kristina Good noted the concert will cover all the favorite jazz standards and tickets are still available.
"Frankie is an absolute artist on drums... whether to drive a big band or provide a sensitive and subtle accompaniment for his favorite vocalist, Rosemary," said Good, adding that Frankie has performed with such artists as Lionel Hampton, Stan Kenton, Woody Herman, Pat Boone, Mitzi Gaynor, Bobby Gentry and Vikki Carr. "Frankie has toured with the Glenn Miller Orchestra to Mexico and the Far East - Most recently, Frankie was the drummer for the band's performance at the 2012 Thailand Jazz Festival."
Rosemary got her start in music at 3 years old, playing piano and singing in Minnesota and eventually earning a Bachelor of Arts Degree at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa.
"As a professional singer, Rosemary has performed with numerous recording and performance artists," Good said. "While in Los Angeles, she was the featured singer with the Ron Rubin Orchestra. Some of her recordings include three featured solos on the CD of the movie soundtrack 'Roar' starring Tippi Hedren... and Melanie Griffith..."
