Jesse Garland - The Envelope Please...
It's days before Hollywood's biggest night and Jesse Garland has your front row ticket to a memorable journey down the glamorous red carpet for a night at the Oscars. Jesse will perform Oscar winning and nominated songs from the 1930s to today. Dress to impress and join Jesse for a night of high fashion, backstories and great music.
Jesse began singing jazz in Washington, DC with regular shows on M Street, singing at the Bohemian Caverns in the U Street Corridor and taking 2nd place in the Takoma Park Jazz festival back in the early 2000s. Since her stint in DC, Jesse found her way out to Denver, CO on a musical journey through classic rock to blues and now back in her true love - Jazz. Her roots are also grounded in musical theater with a degree from Florida State so you will find a touch of Broadway intertwined in her shows. This is Jesse's second appearance in the Dazzle Main show room and will certainly be a show not to miss.
