BLUE HAWAIIAN: Vintage & International Jazz… with a Tropical Twist!
Versatile, multilingual, Hawaiian jazz vocalist Nikki Dee will “knock your Aloha shirt off” with a seamless blend of styles and languages that will transport you around the world, from Brazil to Hawaii to the French Caribbean and beyond.
In a single evening you’ll travel back in time to the boisterous speakeasy’s of 1920s New York; sip cocktails in a small café in 1950′s Paris or Rome; samba the night away in present-day Rio de Janeiro; and feel a lovely hula girl (or beach boy!) slip a lei around your neck in old Waikiki.
