Pamelagrace grew up listening to the music of big band leaders like Count Basie, Duke Ellington and even the Dorsey Brothers. Her father had photos of the band leaders and well known vocalists on the wall of the basement where her parents and later she, gave parties as a teenager. On that wall were photos of Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Etta James and Dinah Washington. Their music was standard in her home. Pamela knew jazz without knowing she knew jazz, until she did.
After a career in Human Resources as a corporate trainer, management recruiter, independent consultant, public speaker and modern dancer, Pamelagrace took all that experience with her and applied it to being a vocalist. Pamela knows her way around a stage and how to manifest dreams. She and the musicians she sings with are all living their dream of providing music they love to audiences that are guaranteed to enjoy jazz standards as much the musicians enjoy playing them.
Pamelagrace sings regularly with two jazz bands and other professional musicians. She performs as a duo - piano and vocals and other configurations. She loves singing with creative, dedicated musicians. Her favorite venues are house parties, corporate events, cozy restaurants/bars and festivals. She and her instrumentalists are flexible and make it a point to provide clients with the most suitable music for their occasion. She and the band can be the main attraction or background music that enhances the ambiance of the event. And they do this with a high level professional expertise and enthusiasm.
Pamelagrace believes that it’s never too late to live your dreams...Dreams have no expiration date.
