The Odeon Preservation Association in Mason presents Jazz at the Odeon with Kellye Gray Saturday March 17 at 7:00 PM. Kellye was recognized as one of the Austin Chronicle’s favorite singers and jazz groups. Kellye uses her powerful yet imaginative voice like an instrument within the ensemble. A true jazz vocalist, Kellye has the soul of Aretha, the heart of Ella and the cool of Miles.
That being said, Kellye Gray is one-of-a-kind with a sound that is truly her own. She remains remains an Austin favorite even while spreading her time between Austin and the west coast where she is a guest instructor at the Jazz School in Berkley California. Kellye Gray has entertained dignitaries and heads-of-state, and shared stages with an impressive constellation of international jazz, blues and R&B stars in a career spanning twenty five years. She regularly tours the U.S. and Europe, performing at festivals and concerts and nightclubs.
Mostly self-taught, Gray has developed her own approach to singing jazz. Her performances highlight her strong sense of balladry with both vocal and lyrical interpretation, along with her funky sense of rhythm. Never limiting herself creatively, Gray blends scat, ballads, Latin, funk, soul, blues, solo and free styles into her shows.
JAZZ at the ODEON with Kellye Gray is a great way to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day and a show you don’t want to miss. And, the Odeon Theater is a great venue for this class act. You will walk away shaking your head and saying WOW! Doors open at 6:30 for Kellye’s 7:00 performance. Reservations are $15 per person and must be paid in advance.
