Presented by Hipp Stage Productions.
The Jess Baldwin Quintet takes center stage for the second installment of the Stage Door Cabaret. Enjoy an evening of music, hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar, with intimate table seating on the stage of the historic Peoples Bank Theatre.
Jess Baldwin’s voice has been described as “world class,” “effortless,” and “pure beauty.” She has performed in jazz, funk, soul, fusion, pop, rock, musical theatre, gospel, Americana, and classical groups.
She brings souvenirs from these diverse vocal worlds into her jazz quintet. Among songs by modern artists like Alan Hampton, the Portico Quartet, and Esperanza Spalding, she peppers her own playful jazz arrangements of pop-rock artists like Björk and Weezer, country artists like Gillian Welch, and classical composers like Barber and Bach. She is joined by an all-star cast of regional musicians: guitarist Ryan Kennedy, pianist Sean Parsons, bassist Steven Heffner, and drummer Andy Hall.
PLEASE NOTE: Entrance to Stage Door Cabaret concerts is through the back stage door on Third Street, just around the corner from our main entrance on Putnam Street.
