Wendee Glick and Friends Celebrate Jack Kerouac
Wendee and Friends will perform for the Annual Lowell Celebrates Kerouac Birthday event at the Gallery Z in Lowell.
An experienced jazz vocalist, Wendee Glick is a singer with a strong stage presence, sense of humor, and ability to belt out a tune, even over a full big band orchestra. She can engage the audience in the up-tempo, or make them weep over a ballad sung with a “bell-like” quality. Wendee has developed a substantial following in the New England area, and she works with the best musicians.
“They have to be great musicians, but just as important… great souls.”
The “great souls” with her for this performance are:
