Communicating With Your Band Workshop with Jeff Jenkins

This workshop will be presented by Jeff Jenkins along with a complete rhythm section.  

Singers and Rhythm Sections: Communicating With Your Band 

Vocalists and instrumentalists have a very special relationship. It can be an incredible partnership, but sometimes it can be contentious. Often the band and the singer approach the music with very different concepts and expectations. This clinic is about finding a common language, and clarifying what instrumentalists and vocalists need from each other, including how to communicate effectively with your band in performance. 

 Price - $50.00 (for Communicating With Your Band workshop only)

If you wish to attend the 6:30pm showcase presentation only, as an audience member, we would love to have you!

We will conclude the SongBird Vocal Jazz Fest with an 8:00pm concert featuring our guest clinician, Jackie Allen, along with her rhythm section. Influenced by jazz, folk, and pop singers, Allen is perhaps best known for interpretations of classic jazz ballads: "There isn't another singer out there who phrases like her." (jazz critic Thom Jurek)

Price - $20 general admission, $14 student w/ID (for Jackie Allen evening concert only)
