Scarlett & Dr. Bob Finney
Ms. Scarlett Productions, L.L.C. is proud to present the great musicality of SCARLETT. This is quality entertainment for upscale audiences who appreciate the great popular and jazz standards from the 1920’s and beyond. Songs like "Misty", "St. Louis Blues", and "Meditation" are performed the way they were meant to be done "back in the good old days" by one of the most talented singers on the scene today-SCARLETT.
Scarlett is backed by tenor sax virtuoso, Dr. Bob Finney, and a three-piece rhythm that includes piano, bass, and drums. Scarlett and this group of seasoned AFM professional musicians provide a rich sound that is smooth, cool, and hot all at once as they bring to life the music from "The Great American Songbook."
