Ode to Jazz...
In the 1930's, the big band sound began to be replaced with smaller, tighter, more skilled ensembles known as cabaret bands. They preferred jam sessions over the more stilted big band sound. Former rivals in the big bands began recruiting each other to create blended cabaret bands that found regular homes in established local clubs and ballrooms. The Graystone Ballroom was still a major venue, now hosting many black bands while other clubs were holding onto segregation.

Venues like the Chocolate Bar and Plantation Club also hosted cabaret bands. The latter was most known for Cecil Lee’s band, At the Chocolate Bar and the Melody Club, where former members of the Cotton Pickers found work. The Cozy Corner was also known for its cabaret house band, as was Club Harlem. Club Harlem later became The Flame, one of Detroit’s most popular jazz spots.

Sky Covington
Detroit Music Award Winner for the Jazz Vocalist Sky Covington is a chanteuse, jazz poet, and recording artist. Entering her 17th year as a professional entertainer, her magnetic presence creates a sultry stage atmosphere and challenges her audience’s expectations with her phrasing, and vocal styling. You will only hear a hint of pass musicians, and vocalist in her voice. But she is surely an original. Mostly Sky Covington inspiration involved & evolved from the Bebop/Cotton Club, early Jazz cultured movement, and ignites the stage with a unique skillful range, and sultry voice that has kept audiences at the edge of their seats…curious, and entertained.
