The Catalina was the perfect setting for this event~ a lovely supper club. I am not sure how she did it, but Tamela managed to squeeze her amazing big band onto the stage which did not deter their performance. She has worked with the best in the business and all of their hard work paid off that night! The place was packed full of friends, family and industry insiders out to show their support.
Tamela sang songs from her self titled CD such as "The Gentleman is a Dope" and "He's a Tramp" along with other standard favorites such as "Route 66". She also peppered the show with stories of her life and was quite charming. Her voice is powerful and lush and has a unique style that makes the standard classics her own. You can tell she is obviously passionate about her craft and has a genuine love of this genre of music and the era. Tamela has a stage presence that rivals the great songbirds of the past and has the pipes to go with it!
