Joyce McCulloch: Wednesday, May 23rd @ 6:00pm
Joyce McCulloch’s first singing engagement was on KNTV’s Record Hop when she was only 11 yrs old. Since then she has continued to reinvent herself to now become the singer she has always wanted to be, one with amazing tone, warmth and the love of jazz. On the road she has learned to sing everything from Rock to Country to R&B to Jazz and became a respected singer/songwriter for an original band that lead her to win a songwriting contest.
Throughout her career she has always had a love of jazz which ultimately brought her to be the “girlsinger” of two well know big bands The Swing Solution and Millennium Sounds and the leader and singer of her own jazz quartet that perform regularly in the area.
