Juno nominated
Georgette Fry has been described as a “powerful and expressive singer.”   She returns to the stage with a Tribute to Etta James, accompanied by an eight-piece band, three accomplished vocalists (Tabby Johnson, Mariko Ohtake and Anna Sudac), and the Shout Sister! Choir providing the gospel backups! 

Georgette’s concerts highlight the ease with which she bridges the gap between jazz and blues.  Sandy MacDonald, Halifax Daily News writes, “With her luscious singing voice, she explores the soulful grey area between blues and jazz, where artists like Etta James and Ray Charles and Bonnie Raitt have staked their careers.”  Long recognized as one Canada’s best blues vocalists, Georgette was most recently named “2013 Singer of the Year” by the Calgary Blues Music Association.

Etta James’ career spanned six decades, during which she had several top ten hits, a dozen nominations and three Grammy Awards and a Grammy “Lifetime Achievement” Award; in 2008, her first hit, “The Wallflower” (aka “Dance With Me Henry”) was also given the Grammy Hall of Fame Award.  Etta James passed away in January of 2012, leaving a lasting legacy.

I saw Georgette Fry’s tribute to Etta James at the The Grand Theatre in Kingston on Thursday, June 20th and it was, without a doubt, the best show I’ve seen this year! Georgette was SENSATIONAL and she received two standing ovations! This is definitely a MUST SEE show. I was almost moved to tears during several songs as Georgette has put so much heart, soul and BLUES into her show. It blew me away. This show isn’t just for Etta James fans (of which I am) but for anyone who wants to witness a spectacular night of blues, R&B, jazz, soul and gospel music. Georgette’s back-up singers Tabby Johnson and Anna Sudac were excellent too. The whole show should really be filmed and made available on DVD, it’s that good!

    Hi Christine.

    I am just curious as to if I can get a message through to you by replying to your blog rss here or not.

    This will tell that tale!

    I have seen Georgette perform and shared the same stages as her and she is amazing!

      Yes, you can get a message through this way, John. I just forgot that I hadn’t answered it and I apologize for that.

      Georgette is my neighbour and we often walk our dogs together. I’d seen her play in bars but had never seen her in a concert setting. Was I ever blown away!

    And a correction: there is no Belleville show booked at this point, in case people were calling.
