Valley Legend Francine Reed Returns!

From the mid-1970s through the early 90s, Francine reigned as the most popular jazz and blues vocalist in the Valley.  In fact, she was still winning New Times/Best of Phoenix awards  after she moved to Atlanta!  Francine appeared with her bands Jazz Alive and Fever at venues such as The Boojum Tree, Chuy’s and Chuy’s Next Door/The Night Club, Churchill’s Pub and Bombay Bicycle Club, plus numerous festivals and concert halls. She has been part of Lyle Lovett’s Large Band since the mid 80’s, appeared on The Tonight Show, and appeared for many seasons in Seattle’s high-energy dinner-theatre cabaret, Teatro ZinZanni.  What an amazingly diverse and exciting career! 

Francine has just returned to Phoenix and this marks her first appearance at The Nash. Her band will include several musicians with whom she has “history,” including Julian Goldenthal, who first played with Francine at the age of 6 years old! 

Get your tickets right away, as this will be a sellout!
