A Tribute to Jazz Cabaret
7pm – 10pm $55
The festival opens with an unforgettable evening of music, comedy and performance art.

Described as a multi-talented cabaret/jazz singer/pianist/entertainer, Roxanna Ward is notorious for her swinging renditions of classic tunes and vivacious stage presence. Also performing is the quick witted comedienne, Karen Williams known for her biting and esoteric humor, and who the San Francisco Chronicle says, “will be sure to tickle your funny bone!” Rounding out the night is the winner of Fifth Annual Gwendolyn Brooks Competition, and 2003 Lambda Literary Award nominee, CC Carter, an insightful, sensual, improvisational performance artist and jazz poet. The chemistry between the threesome is electrifying and their spontaneous energy will leave the audience wanting more.

Trumpet | Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 08:00 pm

A native of Buffalo, New York, Cindy Bradley started playing the piano when she was six. At fourth grade she picked the trumpet by accident, which turned out to be a life and career defining fluke. By 12, she was performing professionally with a Buffalo area jazz band that consisted of promising musicians, ages 12-17, which emulated the big bands of the 1940s. She played with many jazz groups over the years, but it was with this group that she fell in love with performance, jazz, and especially the trumpet.

After a bachelor’s degree in jazz studies, she went to the New England Conservatory to study for her master’s in jazz trumpet performance. After earning her degrees, Cindy immediately headed to the New York City area and immersed herself in the vibrant jazz scene, discovering equal passions for straight ahead be-bop and contemporary jazz, as well as funk, Top 40, R&B and jazz fusion. The bands she was involved with played clubs as well as high profile events like the Emmy Awards and even the Super Bowl.

Calling her 2009 album “Bloom” proved prophetic, as the multi-talented performer blossomed into a powerful and charismatic presence at radio and on the contemporary jazz festival circuit. Along the way, Cindy performed everywhere from the River Raisin’ Jazz Festival in Monroe, Michigan, to the Dubai Jazz Fest. She won Best New Artist at the American Smooth Jazz Awards and was named Debut Artist of the Year by the Catalina Island Jazz Trax Festival and Smooth Jazz News. With the release of “Unscripted” (2011), her latest recording, Cindy Bradley is not only keeping the trumpet and flugelhorn hip and grooving lead jazz instruments like her late great heroes Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan and Blue Mitchell. The first single “Massive Transit” reached #1 on Billboard’s singles chart for 6 weeks in 2012 followed by “Deja Blue” on #2 and “Lifted” on #5.
