Cher, Billie Holiday, Bette Davis, Eartha Kitt, Stevie Nicks, Diana Ross or Elvis Presley -- you never quite know who's going to show up when vocal/visual impersonator Jimmy James opens his mouth. Initially famous for his spot-on tribute to Marilyn Monroe, James has blossomed into one of the most dazzling and versatile performers on the planet, not only acting like icons of stage and screen, but singing like them, too. In addition to his impressions, James is blessed with an amazing voice all his own, most recently showcased in the Billboard-charting hit single, "Fashionista." Now this true vocal phenomenon and Glammy Award-winner makes a rare San Francisco appearance for Jimmy James Live!, a one-night-only engagement at Rebel. Learn More

Wanting to see Ms. Hadero for quite some time, My husband and I were extremely pleased with her voice, performance, talent.... The band meshed well and the mutual respect between them all exuded. We would definitely see her and her band again! First time at Osher and it was nice for a CC.
Quotes & Highlights
See Meklit Hadero’s music video for “Leaving Soon” on YouTube.
Catch a rising star with the lyrical poetry of Meklit Hadero, soul diva / urban lyricist who also is a TED Fellow, former co-director of the Red Poppy Art House in San Francisco, Yale graduate, and cultural activist promoting community involvement in the arts. Presented by The Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts at the Osher Marin JCC, this intimate, jazz-infused evening promises to inspire.
With a four-piece band, Hadero, who has been described as mesmerizing, cosmopolitan, striking and worldly, will enchant with original music crafted from her Ethiopian heritage mixed with her modern take on classical jazz and blues. Influenced by Nina Simone, Hadero’s luminous voice is redolent of Tracy Chapman, Joni Mitchell and Norah Jones.
