Directed by Issac Peña, the group is comprised of 4 horns, piano, guitar, drums, bass and Ginger Leigh! Straight Up is a mix between Etta James and Bette Midler and will have you at the edge of your seat in anticipation of the next note, the next joke, the next moment where tears billow.
Rocker, Ginger Leigh, takes her voice and stage antics to a new style and a new level! While always maintaining and growing her singer-songwriter pop/rock career, Ginger is debuting her jazz project, Straight Up with a Ginger Twist! Previously Ginger headed up an 8-piece swing in the 90's and was raised in the 5th generation of professional entertainers.
Straight Up is Ginger's dream project where she can show off her skills as a veteran entertainer with a voice so big and lush and a stage style so sexy, funny and charming that there is no doubt Straight Up with a Ginger Twist will be the next big thing in jazz performance. Join Straight Up at the Parker Jazz Club in Austin on Th. Nov 7th at 8pm in celebration of Ginger Leigh’s birthday and the debut of this fantastic music project!
