Making a long-awaited festival debut, Lavay Smith and Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers pay tribute to the great women singers of blues and jazz. Here, timeless songs will be heard again, as interpreted by a first-rate singer who lives and breathes the music of her heroines. Supporting her will be the Red Hot Skillet Lickers featuring Mike Olmos on trumpet, Danny Armstrong on trombone, Jules Broussard on alto saxophone, Rob Barics on tenor saxophone and clarinet, Ron Belcher on string bass, and Howard Wiley on drums. Under the direction of pianist Chris Siebert (Smith’s husband), this jumping unit is as deeply immersed in the sounds of traditional jazz and swing as their similarly obsessed leader.

Opening act will be the winners of the first Student Jazz Combo Competition, the Big House Quintet from Casa Grande High School, featuring Mario Aparicio (drums), Gio Mendez (alto saxophone), Hikaru Hallberg (trumpet), Jacob Stanton (bass) and Christian Moreno (piano).
