Backed by some of the hottest musicians in Seattle, four blues and soul music divas -- Ife, Sheila Kay, Debbie Cavitt and Danelle Hayes -- share the Highway 99 stage for this unforgettable concert event. Sheila Kay is a prominent local jazz vocalist who brings a great presence and years of blues and soul vocal experience to this star-studded stage. Dallas-native Debbie Cavitt is the new girl on the block in Seattle's jazz scene, while Seattle singer-songwriter Danelle Hayes has inspired comparisons to everyone from Norah Jones to Joni Mitchell. And the soulful Ife fuses elements of R&B, pop and jazz to create a sound and style all her own. Learn More

As good as his harp playing is, Franco Paletta's strong vocals are what thrills the listeners. He has a unique vocal style that lets you know that you are listening to a true Bluesman. "I don't try to sound like anyone. When people listen to me sing they get pure Franco. I've been given a gift, and when I sing the Blues, it's my way of passing that on to someone else."
Besides sharing the stage with Tommy Castro, Kenny Neal, Magic Dick, and Deanna Bogart, Franco has also had the pleasure of playing with a virtual Who's Who of Portland's Blues Luminaries, including Paul DeLay, Curtis Salgado, Lloyd Jones, Peter Damman, Jim Mesi, Chris Carlson, Duffy Bishop, Jimi Bott, Dave Kahl, Dover Weinburg, Suburban Slim, Robbie Laws, Terry Robb, Doug Rowell, Jimmy Lloyd Rea, and Norman Sylvester to name a few.
In 2007 Franco won the Cascade Blues Associations' "Journey to Memphis" Competition and was privileged to represent the CBA at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennessee in 2008.
Franco has also performed at festivals around the Northwest including the Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, OR; Winthrop Blues Festival in Winthrop, WA; The Sunbanks Blues Festival, in Electric City, WA; The Tri-Cities Blues Festival in WA....
He has also made appearances at The Torch Club, in Sacramento, CA, and Biscuits and Blues, in San Francisco, CA.
