Save the Date! Two Benefit Performances on July 21 & July 22
On this magical evening Linda returns to her roots, on stage with the amazing John Gilmore singing selections from Peggy Lee and Quincy Jones album “Blues Cross Country”, “Basin Street East”, along with Leiber and Stoller hits “Is That All There Is”, “I’m a Woman” and of course “Fever.” Don’t miss this show!
It is such an honor to sing with John Gilmore — he grew up with this music! After getting his degree in music from UCLA, he worked in Beverly Hills and Hollywood entertaining customers such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Cher, Stevie Wonder and Natalie Cole.
Now a Portland legend who has played at all the best venues in town, his CD “For My Father & Frank” is a tribute to his dad, Frank’s record producer from 1953-58.
On both Friday, July 21 and Saturday, July 22, John and Linda will be teaming up to recreate the magic of Peggy Lee and Frank Sinatra on stage as a benefit performance for Magenta Theater. Details to come soon.
Linda and John will be backed by a full roster of Portland’s Jazz all-stars. Stay tuned for the all-star lineup of Portland’s top talent. Don’t miss this amazing evening!Coming July 21 & July 22
