RAYMOND, Wash. — Sunday Afternoon Live brings jazz great Gail Pettis to the historic Raymond Theatre at 2 p.m. on Mother’s Day — Sunday, May 13.
Once an orthodontist, Pettis now graces the stage in the Pacific Northwest as a premier jazz artist. Singing classical music and hymns in her youth, a 1996 workshop launched her into a career of jazz singing and a love of live performance. Pettis now performs throughout the U.S., and has also performed in Europe, Russia and the Far East. Her soulful singing connects with her audience on an emotional level.
Trained by Greta Matassa and two-time winner of the Northwest Vocalist of the Year Award by the Earshot Jazz Society, Pettis combines her warm contralto with the talents of Darin Clendenin on piano, Clipper Anderson on bass and Brad Boal on drums. Pettis croons love songs as well as fresh arrangements of popular standards. She is also a favorite on KMKX jazz radio.
Tickets are $15 at the door, or can be purchased in advance for $12 at the Raymond Theatre, Raymond Pharmacy and South Bend Pharmacy. Tickets also available on PayPal at sundayafternoonlive.org, or by calling 360-836-4419.
The show is sponsored by Michael & Diane O’Meagher, Seaquest Motel, Pioneer Grocery and the Raymond Pharmacy.
Give Mom a lasting memory this Mother’s Day by sharing the gift of music!
