  • Sarah Vaughan is one of the most renowned, respected, and admired vocal Jazz artists of all time. Beloved globally throughout the years during her lifetime to the present day, her recordings and entire back catalogue serve as a precious and profound musical memoir and legacy from which generations of passionate fans intently listen, learn and connect as well as enjoy and ultimately, this sets the foundation for what constitutes being an authentic jazz vocalist today.

For one night only, Deelee Dubé will be acknowledging Sarah Vaughan’s Centenary and artistry in Celebrating 100 Years of “Sassy” by performing a wonderful selection of Vaughan’s most loved and popular songs throughout the years with a stellar line-up of musicians that includes Renato D’Aiello on Tenor Saxophone.
