Posted Feb 27th, 2014 by Nancy Phares  Category: Arts & Entertainment


Ms. Raney will be performing music from her first recording with Nelson Riddle’s Orchestra, all the way through her recent Tribute to Doris Day recording with arrangements by Alan Broadbent. Ms. Raney will perform backed by a band comprised of some of the region’s most well regarded musicians, including Ron Kischuk on Trombone, Gene Parker on Sax, Carmen Fanzone on Trumpet and Flugelhorn (traveling from Los Angeles), Dwight Adams (from Stevie Wonder’s band) on trumpet ,Gary Schunk on Piano, Dave Taylor on Drums, plus world-renowned lead trumpeter Walter White! Come enjoy a night of magical singing with a treasured vocalist and glorious big band that you will never forget!
This is a very special opportunity to enjoy a singer reviewed in New York last year by Rex Reed this way – “Ms. Raney’s singing has a pulse and a rhythmic subtext that is thrilling. She feels it as she goes along, like a method actor. A romantic instead of an athlete, she still has the power to reach Eydie Gorme altitudes. She can still scat with the best, and the joy she exudes in a spotlight is contagious. I suffer through so much mediocrity in New York cabarets that a breath of oxygen as pure as Sue Raney is an indescribable reward that is inspiring. She’s in a class by herself. I hope she comes back to town soon – and often”.
