THE SMOKING JACKETS with Heidi Swedberg
Sophisticated, Educated, Medicated.
The Smoking Jackets are a band of virtuoso multi-instrumentalists who bring their brilliance and bon-vivance to the smallest and hippest strings- the ukulele. Daniel Ward, John Bartlit and Craig McClelland team up with actress Heidi Swedberg for some serious music and comedy. Their repitoire includes twisted takes on jazz, classical, avant-guard, flamenco and pop standards. It's a Pink Martini shaken by Victor Borge and served to Dean Martin...with a twist!
and Brit Rodriguez
Brit Rodriguez, an emerging singer and songwriter, is known for her soulful, smoky voice that beautifully contrasts with the bright, colorful sound of her ukulele. As a musician, she is renowned for her lyrical content and melodic prowess. As a performer, audiences are captivated by her unique sense of humor and down to Earth personality. Influenced by late fifties R&B and nineties dance music, Brit is a hybrid of the raw, youthful energy of today and the great soul and folk divas of the past.
