Act Profile

Shari's Orchestra Of Jazz and Soul

Shari John-Jules, a singer-writer and her band are available as solo singer, duo, trio, quartet or full ensemble performing Jazz, Soul & Blues; laid back or swinging; classic or pop; standards, covers or original songs.

With a well loved repertoire previously sang by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Nina Simone, Billie Holliday, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin and Al Green, to name just a few, Shari John-Jules sings with a simultaneously smooth and raw vocal that digs down for the truth and reaches high for the hope and the band play with authentic, spontaneous jazz and heartfelt soul.  With super sweet guitar, divinely deep bow and bass, dulcet jazz keys or spicy sax, this ensemble will bring sumptuous, elegant or lively entertainment to your event.
