Free concert - Carolyn Lee Jones & The Satin Dolls Band – Sept. 28 - Lakefront Live! Concert Series

521 E. Lawther Dr., Dallas, Texas 75218 • White Rock Lake

Tuesday, September 28, 2021 (7:30 PM)

Our new Lakefront Live! concert series continues into the fall! All shows are free to the public and take place in our semi-enclosed, indoor-outdoor Lake Level space on the shore of White Rock Lake. Bring your friends and family to enjoy our incredible local performers!

Carolyn's rich, silky vocals and extensive repertoire have endeared her to fans and critics. She has released four nationally reviewed CDs on the independent Catn'round Sound label and four singles.

In addition to her regular jazz repertoire, Jones has developed, produced, and performed a series of six themed Cabaret jazz shows to sell-out crowds. She is honored with the prestigious Cabaret Artist of The Year Award for 2017 by The Sammons Center For The Arts in Dallas.

The Satin Dolls Band was inspired by Jones' successful Hooray for the Girls cabaret-jazz show celebrating women composers, lyricists, librettists and singers of the 20th century and beyond. The Satin Dolls Band performs classic jazz favorites, blues, Broadway, R&B, original compositions, and retro-pop with a jazz twist. The band's name is a nod to the 1953 jazz song Satin Doll, composed by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn with lyrics by Johnny Mercer. The band is Carolyn Lee Jones (vocalist), Rebecca Cordes (piano) Peggy Honea (bass) Ann MacMillan (drum set) and Joyce Spencer (sax/flute/vocals).

Social distancing and face coverings are strongly recommended.
