Focal Point 3rd Annual Traditional Jazz Series: Miss Jubilee

Don’t miss St. Louis’ own Miss Jubilee ! Though they’re one of our city’s most recognizable bands, it’s rare to hear them in a such quiet and intimate space!! And just In case you don’t know about them:

Based in St. Louis, MO and led by powerhouse vocalist Valerie Kirchhoff, Miss Jubilee plays an energetic blend of low-down blues, hokum, and hot jazz from the 1920s and 30s. Their one-of-kind repertoire draws heavily from the female blues singers who helped define the genre. From Bessie Smith and Victoria Spivey, to the more obscure Merline Johnson and Lil’ Johnson, Miss Jubilee revives this music with a joy and effortless authenticity. In addition to Valerie, the band is fueled by a hard driving rhythm section led by barrelhouse pianist Ethan Leinwand and bassist Richard Tralles, and a gutbucket horn section led by Kenneth Cebrian (trumpet).
