Pat Molitor – Piano

Peter Vogelaar – Double Bass

Join us for an special evening at Greenacres in Wexford, when award-winning jazz vocalist Melanie O’Reilly celebrates the legendary jazz singer Anita O’Day, - capturing the essence of an unconventional musical icon. Inspired by O'Day's smokey swinging style and brilliant sense of rhythm, Melanie 's riveting performances have garnered her 4-star reviews and standing ovations wherever she performs, whether at the Los Angeles Schoenberg Hall, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The National Concert Hall Dublin, or in recently sold-out shows in San Francisco's hippest jazz clubs, she brings new life to the Great American songbook in a way that is utterly unique, contemporary and brilliantly exciting. Melanie will be joined by the South East's finest jazz musicians Pat Molitor - piano, Peter Vogelaar - double bass and Kevin Lawlor - drums

The show is a celebration and O’Reilly makes every number her own, gliding effortlessly through rhythmic backbeats,…sultry…soulful in virtuoso style. ... The ideal soundtrack to a hot summer night" Edinburgh Fringe Festival/Unlimited Media

" O’Reilly’s exhilaratingly beautiful, nuanced voice...." San Jose Mercury News
