The Billie Holiday Project, led by Stella Heath, celebrates the music of Lady Day! Shrouded in mystery, as she was draped in furs, Billie was quintessentially multi-faceted, possessing the sensitivity and ability to make the songs she sang as personal as if she was singing them softly in your own very ear. Featuring some of the Bay Area’s finest Jazz musicians, The Billie Holiday Project evokes the electric and intimate feeling of experiencing Lady Day live in a 1930s Jazz Club. Drawing from some of Billie’s most recorded tunes, such as Blue Moon, Billie’s Blues, God Bless the Child, and Strange Fruit, to name but a few, the band also revives some of the earlier and lesser-known tunes that Billie interpreted. In performance, interspersed with the music are stories of Billie’s life and musical artistry. The Band features Stella Heath, invoking the vocal stylings of Billie Holiday; Neil Fontano, piano virtuoso from Sonoma County; Michael Fortunato, rich and inventive on tenor saxophone and clarinet; Trevor Kinsel, interchanging between upright bass and cornet; and the Spike Klein on the drum kit.

I’ve loved Billie Holiday’s music since I was a kid – this would be a real treat right now! Thanks for considering me!
Would be great to be in the audience to hear the singing of this individual Stella Health.
Love Billie Holiday! Hoping to win tickets for my partner and i 🙂
As a female jazz musician, Billie is one of my idols. I have always loved her music, and would love to hear Stella Heath pay homage to such a monumental artist.
Would love to hear them play God Bless The Child.
This is amazing! I loved going to SFjazz!
Yessssssss! Would so love to go and take my mom ❤️
I would love to go to this. I studied Historical Jazz in college. I learned about her poem Strange Fruit, about two years before covid19 during Film Festival. I would like to take my sister and her husband with me, or if only two tickets than me and my sister. Our father loved Jazz. This would be a nice way to celebrate together. I hope I get to go! Thanks.
Would love to go! Great music in one of my fave venues
Billie Holiday is a queen. Such fabulous music. I would love to go to an event and get out.
This would be delightful!!
Need some live music to revitalize me !
Spike Klien doing a Billie Tribute?!
Oh YES PLEASE!!
I enjoy the jazz standards quite a bit! Lady Day to the rescue!
We got married on Monday so we need to celebrate. Thanks.
This would be amazing to take my mama to see. She loves her self some Billie! She just turned 70 & there is no one who deserves to be celebrated more than my mama because she has kept our whole family together and is definitely a Queen, just like Ms Holiday.
Billie Holiday’s woek is beautiful and I would love to see it performed live. I would be honored to win these tickets to take my partner on a well-deserved date night.
I need to hear me some blues!! Smooth, baby!!
I was literally just talking to my partner about going to see live Jazz soon, but I wasn’t sure if that existed in Portland. I’m glad it does, and I’d love to win!
My girlfriend is making me do this.
My 60th birthday is on the 18th. What a wonderful birthday present this would be!
I would love to take my new ladyfriend to this. We’re both big Lady Day and jazz/blues fans!
I just moved to the area and would love to hear some music!!! Especially Billie Holiday!
