This was a fun show, but it was not as advertised. It was billed as Francine doing a set with the Total Experience Choir, and then doing a solo set. What we got was 3-4 songs with the choir, and the rest of the night was "the Reed family",...continued

She was absolutely fantastic, even if she didn't sing "Wild Women." She appeared onstage with the Total Experience Gospel Choir, and her sisters and brother. Fabulous evening!!

This was a wonderful evening of blues and gospel with Francine Reed, her siblings, and a local gospel choir. Teatro Zinzanni was a great venue for this show, and I hope they do more like this in the future.
