Debbie Briggs Vintage Jazz
May 28 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Debbie Briggs as described by a fan: “…Her voice sounds like whiskey poured over velvet, like honey in your tea” No doubt Debbie Briggs is on her way to becoming a mainstay in the Twin Cities jazz scene due to her dynamic voice that harkens back to a simpler time, when broken hearts and broken heels were your only worry. Debbie’s presence is both warm and welcoming. Her tone is uniquely rich and resonant as she skillfully delivers each song with soul, style, grace, and gumption. She sings in such a way that will draw you in and satisfy your ear giving ‘just what the song calls for.’ As with every singer Debbie is a product of the times, so while paying tribute to the past you can also hear a modern sensibility in her phrasing and approach to a song. With one foot in the past and one in the future Debbie will be a true force in the Twin Cities music scene for years to come.
