They tried to put Nancy in a box. She was not having it.
“Nancy” is a standout bio-concert presentation of the life and music of Grammy award winning Nancy Wilson – the stylish actress, singer and television host, who unlike most ladies of her time crossed over into pop, soul, r&b and blues as well as jazz. She lived and worked on her terms, and accepted the consequences. Faith Amour, backed by a stellar trio, will take you into Nancy’s world, in her signature dramatic and humorous style. She’s a funny lady! You will love this third installment of the Jazz Diva Series, following Faith’s 2014 “Nina” and 2017 “Ella”, which garnered standing ovations from New Mexico to New York, Toronto to Ottawa – coming this spring to a warm room near you!
The platform, Metropolitan Zoom, makes the event an experience, not a zoom meeting! As New York City event veterans with the brick and mortar Metropolitan Room, they know how to put on a show! You’re entered by a concierge, there is pre-show entertainment, a beautiful performance and then a VIP Meet and Greet & Backstage Pass if you want a little more premium fun. You become an interactive and integral part of the show!
