Sweet Georgia Brown is known as a real sassy lady. As described in Ralph Cooper’s book, she is “the last of the red hot mamas!” A blues singer is not descriptive enough for you to get Sweet Georgia Brown’s performance: Yes, it’s blues, it’s R&B too, it’s a party!

Once you experience SGB live, you will never forget it, simply because she is really entertaining and a lot of fun! Sweet Georgia Brown gets up close to her audience you may even end up on stage with her!

Her rich history includes performances with Dizzy Gillespie, George Benson, Fathead Newman, KoKo Taylor and Stanley Turrentine. She’s is truly one of the last real Harlem diva blues queens.

Taught by the vocal coach Margaret Haynes, Georgia developed her skills as a jazz and pop vocalist, leading to her winning the legendary Amateur Night at the Apollo Talent show. Now she was prepared for a professional career as a vocalist. Georgia began with pop and jazz tunes, but discovered she preferred to sing blues songs. Cast as a vocalist in the Broadway hit’s Eubie and Bubbling Brown Sugar, she was at the start of a successful career as a Blues vocalist. Starring in An Evening at the Cotton Club as Bessie Smith, Georgia toured throughout Europe entertaining audiences with her high-energy performances of jazz, blues and gospel tunes!
