Sam's Corner with Michelle Jacques

Sam's Corner  

Every so often, our own Sam Rudin takes the stage in a variety of formats. Last month he had his old band come out for some high energy blues and jazz. Tonight he will deliver some solo performances, and he will also be joined by the wonderful singer Michelle Jacques .

Michelle Jacques is the Artistic Director & Founder of the CHELLE! and Friends New Orleans Band and CHELLE’S JUKE JOINT a cappella ensemble. Michelle is a member of the Governor's Board of The Recording Academy/San Francisco chapter, and director of the Select Vocal Ensemble and Middle School Solo at Oakland School for the Arts. Michelle has toured throughout the United States and Europe, performing with and alongside many well-known artists including Manhattan Transfer, Wynton Marsalis, Linda Hopkins, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Pete Seeger, Al Green, and The Persuasions.
