Music Box Supper Club says
Two sets from this Cleveland-raised, blues-based dynamo

The Sydney Ellis Quintet – Lucky $7 admission includes a cocktail!

Cleveland-raised Sydney Ellis began her musical career in the Los Angeles area when, on the day after her 44th birthday, she got her nerve up and climbed up onto a session stage. Since then, her singing has blossomed into an obsession for what she calls her cultural heritage, otherwise known as African-American folk music—what the rest of the world calls classic jazz, gospel, spirituals, New Orleans jazz and blues, R & B, and Chicago or Kansas City blues. Since 1995, Ellis has performed over 1,000 concerts in 25 countries, including Germany, Switzerland, Spain, France, Hungary and The Netherlands. She performs songs made famous or recorded by over 40 artists; just some of her influences include Dinah Washington, Nina Simone, Elmore James, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole and Bessie Smith.

David Holmberg: organ/piano
