Samirah Evans and Her Handsome Devils, pianist Miro Sprague, bassist Marty Jaffe, drummer Conor Meehan and saxophonist Michael Zsoldos will present their signature house-rocking, extemporaneous, take-no-prisoners performances.
"Samirah and Her Handsome Devils are amazing, the music is exciting and the energy is burning hot!" - Eugene Uman, Artistic Director of the Vermont Jazz Center
Most of all, Evans assets -- which once made her the toast of pre-Katrina New Orleans -- include her sultry, sometimes silken, always smoking hot vocals and vibrant stage presence. Add to this gumbo of saucy ingredients her passion for connecting with her audience while she’s moving and grooving on-stage.
"Because she knows how to let the good times roll, the sassy, soulful entertainer/diva has, in ten years as a Brattleboro transplant, won the hearts and minds of New Englanders thankful to have so much bona fide Crescent City joie de vivre and savoir faire readily available at local venues and festivals from Vermont to Western Massachusetts and beyond." - Owen McNally, WNPR Jazz Corridor
