The Jessica Blinn Octette @ the Royal Lounge

The Jessica Blinn Octet is returning to the Royal to kick off our August Jazz series. This band's slick sound energizes their interpretations of swing standards and jazz ballads.

Jessica Blinn, mezzo-soprano and violinist, is a graduate of the San Francisco Music Conservatory. Jessica loves to perform many genres of music including Classical, Jazz, Klezmer and Celtic.
Jessica has been praised in the News Tribune for “wowing the audience” and her “soulful playing.” She currently performs around the northwest with a number of groups, including The Jessica Blinn Octet, Erev Rav, the Lakewood Community Jazz Band and Scott Cossu.
