From Ginger – “The demand for a repeat of the first show was so great, the Dakota has invited us back for a reprise. I will be singing solo this time BUT I will have the original Moore By Four trio with me (Sanford Moore – Piano, Jay Young – Bass and Bobby Commodore – Drums) as well as Daryl Boudreaux back on percussion and other friends sitting in.”
Don’t miss round #2!
About Ginger Commodore
An evening full of sizzling soul, jazz and powerful vocals.
A member of the Midwest music scene for many years, Ginger is a regular visitor to The Dakota’s stage. Classically trained, gospel influenced, and jazz inspired, Ginger’s musical foundation is a true amalgam of musical styles presented with her own unique delivery. A former member of Sounds of Blackness, Ginger has also been very active in the local theater scene.
Ginger’s early background was gospel, and she honed her skills in church and in the Grammy Award winning group the Sounds of Blackness. Then came Moore by Four, and years of singing the jazzy gospel infused vocal arrangements that gave the group an international audience. And now, all that talent and experience is brought into her own group, GCQ.
