The Bandon Showcase presents Halie Loren, Friday February 8th!

Halie Loren shows that ‘old school’ becoming ‘new cool’ in the hands of a gifted artist is a beautiful thing. Her stellar voice with great tone and her marvelous phrasing sets her apart from most female vocalists. Halie’s warm and seductive voice works its magic on the ‘old school’ of Gershwins, Harold Arlen, Cole Porter, and offers original compositions – the ‘new cool’ of jazz. She unifies each piece with a rhythmic pulse, unique phrasing and the subtlety of a slight vibrato on note endings.

Halie and her quintet will perform a night of jazz and more (with more than a few love songs in early celebration of Valentine’s Day!) at the Sprague Community Theatre on Friday, February 8th. For more information and to purchase tickets, click Here.
