Grace Kelly: Grace's Joy Party
Jazz/Blues, Music
Presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre
Friday, October 19, 2018

Grace Kelly plays with the heart and passion of an old soul yet with the genre-bending zest and energy of a 25-year old. Having performed at President Obama’s inauguration at 16, Kelly was a regular on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s band, Jon Batiste and Stay Human. “Charismatic and immensely talented” (DownBeat magazine), Kelly has drawn critical praise and new fans every year with headlining over 800 shows in 30 countries at all major jazz festivals, from Montreux to Newport to Montréal. A multiple award winner as an alto sax player and composer, Grace Kelly is a fearless jazz innovator and a world class saxophonist who’s making jazz young. 

Grace's new song, “Feels Like Home” (from her latest album, GO TIME: Brooklyn 2) was selected as a Grand Prize Winner in the 2018 Session-I John Lennon Songwriting Contest.

"...broad tone and tenacious flow on the alto saxophone ... clearly in possession of virtuoso talents ... impressive singing voice, flitting among a range of styles."The New York Times
