Bring together three Omaha-based talents and you'll get some seriously swinging, fun music.
Johnny Adams and Ron Cooley have performed across the country on their own projects and as part of Chip Davis' Mannheim Steamroller. Joining them will be vocalist Susie Thorne.
Adams is a singer and songwriter who performs, records, tours and even operates a Nashville music publishing company. Cooley is a composer and phenomenal guitarist who is one of the busiest pickers around because he is so in demand for performances.
Tonight at Turner Park, expect Adams and Cooley Rat Pack Jazz to play musical standards made famous by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett and Nat King Cole. Their vocal and guitar work will pull you back into a past era. The band's new album, “Lucky 13,” will be available for the first time at tonight's concert for $10.
Thorne's voice has been praised as reminiscent of legendary performers such as Eartha Kitt.
