Hot Club Chanteuse
One of the Twin Cities’ favorite vocalists, Connie can swing the standards with the best of them. And she can hold her own with a Beatles book. And she sounds great in a hot club/gypsy jazz setting. She has recorded CD’s with all of these projects and more!
Known for taking divergent paths, Connie’s recorded catalog of acclaimed CD’s reflects an adventurous spirit that knows no boundaries, with multiple albums in the “hot club” style plus additional projects exploring the music of Peggy Lee, the Beatles, Dave Frishberg, bossa nova, and more. Her “Gypsy in My Soul” release brought her a nomination of Jazzweek Vocalist of the Year in 2005 and consistently ranks in the Top 10 International Jazz releases on Amazon.
Based in Minneapolis, Evingson has made guest appearances with Jazz at Lincoln Center, A Prairie Home Companion, the JazzMN Orchestra, the Minnesota Orchestra, Toronto Symphony and others. She appears at various Twin Cities venues and is the featured artist on the Jungle Theater’s Jazz at the Jungle series.
