Unique performance at the Jefferson Center
Roanoke’s favorite jazz queen, René Marie is coming home this January and she’s bringing her fiery attitude with her. The introductory lyrics to her most recent album, “I Wanna Be Evil“, a tribute to Eartha Kitt which earned Marie a 2015 Grammy nomination, perhaps put it best: “They say that I’m a witch and that I weave a spell. Well… I’d rather be burned as a witch than never to burn at all.” With a cackle of mischief and a voice that slides from silken shimmer to mellow croon, Marie has built an international career on guts, creative vision, and a rare talent that delights and, yes, burns. Don’t miss the date and get your ticket here.
