Jazz Alley – Laila Biali
June 11 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$35
The Paramount Arts Center’s ‘Jazz Alley’ series kicks off its 20th season this Saturday, June 11th with award-winning Canadian artist Laila Biali.
Multi award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter, pianist and CBC Music national radio host Laila Biali has headlined festivals and venues spanning five continents from New York City’s Carnegie Hall to Beijing’s National Centre for the Performing Arts, and supported international icon Sting.
While Laila continues to earn high honours in the Jazz world, her signature sound transcends genre as she “masterfully mixes jazz and pop, bringing virtuosity and unpredictability to songs that are concise and catchy” (Washington Post). Laila’s highly anticipated album, Out of Dust, which features multiple GRAMMY nominees and winners including Lisa Fischer, Alan Ferber, John Ellis, and Larnell Lewis, released March 27, 2020 and was also nominated for a 2021 JUNO Award.
The Jazz Alley series, now celebrating its 20th season, is unique in that the events take place entirely ON the Paramount stage. Limited seating, world-class bands, a bar, and snacks, all on the stage together, make for a wonderful, intimate experience unlike anything else done at the theater!
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online at ParamountArtsCenter.com or through the Paramount Box Office. The Box Office can be reached at 606.324.0007 and is located at 1300 Winchester Avenue in Ashland, KY. Operating hours are 10am-6pm Monday-Friday.
