The Wanda Houston Band with Joanie Schwartz

“The WANDA HOUSTON BAND has become one of the most sold out musical groups throughout the Berkshires and beyond.  Vocalist, Wanda Houston, leads the quartet in their takes on classics  from Fitzgerald to Joni, Aretha to Sinatra and Beetles to Jackson 5. Now Celebrating 16 years of music and being voted the Berkshires Favorite Band, you will experience fond musical memories as you hear favorites from the 20’s through the 70’s. The Wanda Houston Band is: Rob Kelly on keyboard/bass/vocals, Jeff Stevens on horns/vocals, Jay Bradley on drums and the artful vocals of song stylist Wanda Houston!  For more info please visit WandaWorld.biz “

“Joanie Schwartz is one of our local favorites. She has been performing in clubs for 50 years all over New England. Joanie is a singer/songwriter covering a variety of styles, from the Blues, to Bluegrass, Jazz and Contemporary Folk. Her original tunes are a slice of life and heartfelt, always with a touch of humor. Joanie won first prize for an original song on a Boston Radio station, WBCN. Her guitar work will amaze you.
Joanie has opened for Richie Havens, David Bromberg, Patty Larkin, and Catie Curtis. Tracy Chapman opened for Joanie and the rest is history, well for Tracy anyway. Opening for Wanda Houston is a dream come true and you can expect some collaboration on at least a few tunes.”
