Jazz & Blues @ Your Library: Gwen and Charles Scales
August 15 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
We’re excited to see such interest in this event. We will open the doors at 5:30 pm. This may be our first ever sell out concert, so we encourage you to arrive early to secure your seats.
This creative duo brings many years of experience, both in live performance and recordings. Gwen Scales sings while Charles Scales plays keyboards and arranges.
Gwen has been inspired by the vocal stylings of Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald and Nancy Wilson. She says, “having something to say while singing a song is just as important as hitting the notes.” Charles has been a musician since he was eight and gives credit to such legends as Ramsey Lewis, Herbie Hancock and Art Tatum for influencing his playing style.
The Scales sum up their musical goals with, “Whatever happens, we have our family, our music, and each other.”
$5.00 general admission or $3.00 admission for Friends of the Southfield Public Library members. No charge for children under 12.
Jazz & Blues is sponsored by the Friends of the Southfield Public Library and the Detroit Blues Society.
