The 11th Annual Sister City Female Vocalist Jazz Audition at Jazz Alley is right around the corner so mark your calendars! The Seattle Kobe Sister City Association (SKSCA) is pleased to announce its Seattle-Kobe Female Jazz Vocalist Audition. SKSCA will select one high school and one adult female jazz vocalist from the greater Seattle area to Kobe, Japan to perform at the Kobe Jazz Queen Vocalist Contest on May 9th, 2015.

Every fall for the last fifteen years, the winner of the Kobe Jazz Queen Contest has flown to Seattle to debut in the US at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley. Last year SKSCA sent local jazz vocalist Jennifer Kienzle and high school vocalist Laura Rosok to Kobe for the May 2014 Kobe Jazz Queen Contest. This year, the SKSCA is proud to host its 11th jazz vocalist audition as a reciprocal exchange to send two Seattle female jazz vocalists to Japan.

Coco Montoya

Thu, Jan 20 - Sun, Jan 23

Whether riding herd on a roadhouse romp, laying down a sweet, slow blues or blasting with blues-rock fury, Coco delivers the goods, with passionate, fire-breathing vocals matching his incendiary guitar pyrotechnics step for step. It's hard-hitting blues-rock that stays with a listener long after the last notes die off. "In a world of blues guitar pretenders, Coco Montoya is the real McCoy. He exudes power and authenticity. Be prepared to get scorched by the real thing" —Billboard
