BARBARA MORRISON
WITH BOBBY BARRON AND HIS SWING THING BAND

Originally from Detroit, Barbara Morrison's twenty-year career as a performer and recording artist includes appearances worldwide with some of the greatest names in jazz: Ray Brown, Kenny Burrell, Ron Carter, Ray Charles, Dizzy Gillespie, Buddy Collette, Joe Williams, Gerald Wiggins, Jimmy Witherspoon, Hank Crawford, Eddie Harris, Nancy Wilson, David T. Walker and Jimmy Smith. She has performed in such highly regarded venues as Carnegie Hall, the North Sea Jazz Festival, the Bern Jazz Festival and the Playboy Jazz Festival. Morrison also toured Europe with Ray Charles. Morrison seems equally at home in a broad range of idioms, from pop to R&B to the blues, but the blues is unquestionably her forte. Morrison has been compared to some of the greatest female jazz and blues singers. Her singing has been described as "soul stirring, sizzling," her style, "graceful," her pacing, "flawless." The New York Times stated, "A joy, at Carnegie Hall, Barbara Morrison delivered one song a la Esther Phillips and another with Ella Fitzgerald's blithe scat singing."

BETTY DE LA TORRE

Betty is a delightfully familiar face around Rusty's. When she took classes at Lindy by the Sea, I could immediately tell she was a professional dance, and I asked her why she was taking class. Turns out Lindy Hop was the one dance she didn't know!

Betty has been a professional dancer since her very early teens and has worked over the years in theater and television as a dancer, director, choreographer, actress, and singer.

Come along early and enjoy her Cinco De Mayo dance class, and see what we already know about Betty -- she's the BEST!

Really anything from the 1920s to the present that will get your feet dancing, that's what we bring in!
