Peggy Hayes (vocals) and Doug Kobs (keyboards/guitar) are a jazz duo based in Raleigh, NC. Both spent many years performing in Manhattan before moving to the Triangle area.
Peggy and Doug share a musical passion for the great vocalists of the Golden Age of Jazz: Billie, Ella, Sinatra, and Bennett, to name a few.
Although jazz standards are a large part of Peggy and Doug’s repertoire, the Blues, whether light and breezy or down and dirty, is one of their favorite pastimes.
They also dig Pop tunes delivered with a touch of sophistication along the lines of Michael Buble’, Diana Krall, Sting and Adele, as well as classics by Joni Mitchell, Steve Winwood and Bonnie Raitt.
Tonight Peggy and Doug will be joined by special guest Rick Wolff on bass. Rick is a fixture on the Triangle jazz scene, and the evening promises to be a cool blend of styles.
Sola Coffee Café (www.solacoffee.com) is a terrific local coffee brewer in North Raleigh (where Lead Mine Road meets Old Lead Mine Road). Sola features a great dinner menu, and they also serve beer and wine, so be sure to come hungry! Come on by and enjoy a great meal and a couple hours of great jazz!
