The McConnell Arts Center Thursday night concert series returns this Thursday, February 2nd with the jazz, funk and soul talents of Dr. E., and the show entitled “From Sarah Vaughn to Chaka Khan and beyond!”. The Bronwynn Theatre in the McConnell Arts Center in Worthington has been so gracious to host a number of live music performances and jazz performances in the past year at their venue. The “Music at the MAC” shows are every first and third Thursdays of each month in Worthington.
Dr. E only needs one tool, her lovely voice, to operate on the eardrums of all who bear witness to her musical talents. Her poised tone, fierce delivery and ability to entertain and inspire will leave listeners in awe as the doctor prescribes medicinal melodies that can cure any emotional ailment.
Since it’s release, Dr. E’s debut LP Elevated remains in high demand amongst jazz and soul music audiences even landing Dr. E a nomination from 2010 SoulTracks Reader’s Choice Awards for Best New Artist. Produced by Billboard Music Award winning songwriter/producer Larry Marcus (Rude Boys), Elevated features a compilation of well-rounded musical compositions that will warm the hearts and souls of many.
“Vocally, Dr. E’s instrument recalls the lighter and playful side of Patti Labelle’s voice during her formative years in the Bluebelles.”- Mark Anthony Neal, commentator for National Public Radio.
Known as a Jazzy Soul Queen, Dr. E has appeared at notable venues such as Lansing Jazz Festival (headliner), Walt Disney World, The Cleveland Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and many more. She has elevated and intrigued listeners with her unique brand of jazzy soul as the opener for musical heavyweights David Hollister, Ronnie Burrage, Zapp Band, Stax recording artist N’Dambi, and the legendary Hip Hop icon MC Lyte.
In addition to catching a stellar live performance, the soulful sounds of Dr. E can also be heard on television as several tunes have made their way to daytime television shows.
