The Julie McConnell Quintet · 6:00pm
Incredibly gifted jazz vocalist from Southern California, Julie McConnell, who now lives local, has been performing songs from her newest CD, "Senza Fine," in the greater Asheville area. At these performances Julie has hand-picked songs from this CD and her previous CD, for her smokin' hot 4-piece band...all compelling jazz pieces brilliantly performed by the quintet, with exciting and new arrangements by Michael Jefry Stevens, Bill Gerhardt, and Bryan McConnell. Band members include: Bryan McConnell on bass, Bill Gerhardt on piano, Chris Beyt on guitar, and Rick Dilling on drums.
Julie released this newest CD in much anticipation on Saturday, December 29th at her CD Release Concert in the Master Works Theatre, at Freeburg Pianos in Hendersonville, NC. The event was well reviewed, enjoyed by all who came, and it led to she and her band being picked up for a second CD Release Concert at White Horse Black Mountain. This concert was an even greater success, the audience hanging on every word and note. That success led to an encore concert at White Horse, and from there venues all over greater Asheville.
Since moving to the area, Julie has performed at Biltmore, White Horse Black Mountain, Jongo Java, Cask & Wine on Main, Appalachian Coffee House, Wine & Oyster Bar, The Masterworks Theatre at Freeburg's, The Strand, Connestee Falls Blue Ridge Lounge, The DFR Room, and The Purple Onion, as well as private parties and corporate events, and continues to make appearances at these locations. In addition, Julie has been featured several times on Renee Denton's weekly radio show on WNCW's "Local Color" program on Monday nights. Julie was also featured in February 2019 in the “30 Days Out” section of the Mountain Xpress, written by Bill Kopp, as well as featured as one of WNCW’s Top Picks from their event calendar Spring 2019, had an extensive artist page feature from White Horse Black Mountain twice in 2019, and had a featured article in the Smoky Mountain News Summer 2019.
