    Jun 27

    Bakersfield, CA, US | 6:00pm

    Jazz, Chill, Rock Vocalist and Actress 310/210-2775 www.kamaruby.com kamaruby@yahoo.com Kama Ruby is a jazz vocalist/actress/dancer. Her credits include Stella in a Western States Tour of “A Streetcar Named Desire,” a producer and cast member in “Stages: A Unique and Unusual Cabaret” that has quarterly performances in various cities in California as well as performing with the Utah Shakespearean Festival, the Kern Shakespeare Theater, the Rogue Fringe Festival, the Nevada Conservatory Theater, and many other venues. Kama’s focus in the last several years has been on performing as a jazz vocalist. Gifted with a beautiful, sexy, and sultry voice, she is well versed in the standard jazz vocal repertoire. Her performances of classics such as “Something Cool” or “One for My Baby” display her remarkable emotional as well as vocal range. However, whether performing as a solo artist, backed by an accompanist, or with her band, Kama Ruby and Company, she also adheres to the notion that “Jazz isn’t just for the straight ahead folks!” by covering compositions that are hardly ever associated with jazz. She combines her love for jazz with her love for classic & alternative rock, and gives those tunes a completely different, jazzy flavor, while still maintaining the recognizable feel of the originals. As a jazz singer, she has opened for, performed with, and studied with a variety of jazz musicians, including Tom Scott and Clayton Cameron. She has continued her jazz education by participating in jazz clinics given by Carl Saunders, Javon Jackson, Dave Tull, Barbara Morrison, Sherry Williams, Theo Saunders, Henry Franklin, and others. Kama's first album “Kama Ruby, Straight-up & Chilled” and her sophomore album, "Kama Ruby: Rock Dreams in Jazz" are both a mix of jazz standards, acid jazz, classic rock, and pop tunes. The recordings capture the live feel of her performances and her unique take on familiar works.
