KIM NALLEY
Let The Good Times Roll
If you are not in a bon ton roulette frame of mind, then you've come to the wrong show, because feisty songstress Kim Nalley gives a jazz/blues thrill to New Years Eve that few performers can match, in the Bay Area or anywhere. San Francisco Chronicle says she has "pipes to burn and works the stage like she means it." A powerful blues singer, a jazz stylist who can put her stamp on American songbook standards, a soul drenched vintage R&B master, Nalley defies all categorization. Kim Nalley (vocals), Tammy Hall (piano), Michael Zisman (bass), Kent Bryson (drums) and Josh Workman (guitar).
