Copy: Where is the oldest jazz club in the world? Detroiters claim it’s Baker’s Keyboard Lounge. Folks in Chicago say it’s the Green Mill. This Thursday none of that matters. The place to be is the Detroit Historical Society at roughly 6pm EST time when renowned jazz singer Sky Covington takes the stage. Jazz on the Streets of Old Detroit.
To quote the organizers—
“The Black Historic Sites Committee invites you to the next memorable evening in its quarterly jazz series, showcasing the rich vocal styling of Sky Covington. Join us as we close out Black History Month on February 28th with a performance from Ms. Covington, a native Detroiter, who is both singer and songwriter. She has won numerous awards, including “Outstanding Jazz Vocalist” at The Detroit Music Awards in 2016, for her jazzy vocals.
Sky has opened for many prominent and well-known artists such as Straight Ahead and the late Queen of the Blues, Alberta Adams. Her music resonates with influences that span multiple music genres including jazz, soul and house.
All proceeds from this event assist the Black Historic Sites Committee with its goal to raise funds to erect and replace Michigan Historical Markers.
