Back by popular demand for two nights because tickets for her show sell out so quickly, internationally acclaimed pop/jazz/blues entertainer Suede will perform at Cotuit Center for the Arts on Friday, August 23, and Saturday, August 24, at 7:30 PM.
The New York Times described Suede as “like Adele meets Diana Krall meets Bette Middler—sassy, smooth, and intoxicating,” noting that she provided “a spectacular evening of song and style. Voices like hers come along maybe once in a generation.” The Boston Globe called her “Wicked exciting,” and Steppin’ Out Arts, NY, wrote "A great voice, even better enthusiasm, almost giddy delight at entertaining audiences, that if bottled would make every anti-depressant on the market obsolete."
Suede, a longtime Cape Cod favorite, has performed at sold-out shows at world-renowned clubs like NYC’s famous Birdland, Boston’s Scullers Jazz Club, San Francisco’s Feinstein’s, Washington DC’s Kennedy Center, and many others. She has done multiple national and international tours, including helping to raise $45,000 in one night for a free clinic outside Washington, DC, and performing as Joan Rivers’ opening act, commanding standing ovations from Joan’s audiences.
Suede plays piano, trumpet, and guitar, but voice is her first instrument and her powerful charismatic presence and love of entertaining are what truly make her stand out. She sings everything from originals written for her by a circle of talented contemporary writers to intimate ballads, jazz standards, and “bring-down-the-house” belted-out blues—all with her own signature blend of warmth, wit, and musical artistry.
Suede will be joined for these concerts by her versatile New England trio: Freddie Boyle on piano, Rich Hill on bass, and Steve Langone on drums.
Tickets are $45, $35 for balcony seating. There is a $5 discount for members and a $2 discount for seniors and veterans. For tickets, and more information, visit www.artsonthecape.org, or call 508-428-0669. Cotuit Center for the Arts is at 4404 Route 28 in Cotuit.
