THE HOT MAMMAS!
Sun. Oct. 28
7 to 9 p.m.
The Sylvia Hotel Lounge
The Hot Mammas are a Vancouver trio of seasoned performers who between them have a book’s worth of stage, concert, television, and recording credits.
Longtime friends Julie Brown (known during her years as a local broadcaster as Downtown Julie Brown), Mary Ella Young, and Georgina Arntzen will be accompanied by Tom Arntzen on piano in a series of performances at The Sylvia Hotel Lounge. This dynamic, contemporary jazz vocal trio love harmony, rollicking rhythms, and saucy lyrics and so will you as they sing the songs they love — tunes that go back to The Boswell Sisters of the roaring 20’s and encompassing Ella Fitzgerald, The Andrews Sisters, and Lady Gaga.
Dates include: Sun. Oct. 28 (7 to 9 p.m.); Thurs. Nov. 15 (8 to 10 p.m.); and Sun. Dec. 9 (7 to 9 p.m.).
