Black Tie International Magazine: Event Talent-Tara O'Grady

Tara O'Grady

Tara O'Grady

and the

Black Velvet Band

A Swinging Jazz Band based in NYC

www.taraogradymusic.com

Bookings: 917-599-6727              

info@taraogradymusic.com
 

Tara O'Grady and the Black Velvet Band
is available as a four-piece band (vocals, guitar, stand-up bass, saxophone/trumpet) though various configurations of band members are available to suit your event/venue size, budget, and space requirements. Tara can also simply be accompanied by her pianist.

 “Tara O’Grady has a fierce soul, because her glorious voice is positively dripping with it.” Dr. Christine Ranck, Co-Author, Ignite the Genius Within

 

Nominated as one of Irish Voice’s Most Influential Women of 2010 presented by Ireland’s Prime Minister, Tara’s voice has been compared to Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and even Patsy Cline, depending on the genre of the music. Her look is reminiscent of the Golden Age of Hollywood. She was raised on Irish traditional music, as well as the sounds of the great jazz and early rock and roll musicians. Her unique style and repertory combine celtic, folk, blues, old time rock and roll and especially jazz. If you can sing it, she can swing it.

Her “remarkable debut” album Black Irish is.. ‘one of the most charming vocal albums of the last months….in the tradition of the best jazz singers from the fifties and she is thereby splendidly assisted by some excellent musicians who are able to intuit her retro swing ‘n blues style with closed eyes.’ Martin Overheul, www.altcountryforum.nl

Tara is currently recording her second album of original jazz and blues songs in Nashville called Good Things Come to Those Who Wait. She is collaborating with some of the top jazz musicians in the music industry. Stay tuned for that release in early 2011.

This native New Yorker with Irish roots initially formed an Andrew Sisters tribute band and was a regular headliner at the Irish Arts Center in Manhattan. She has performed at Lincoln Center, The Museum of the City of New York, The Jewish Museum, The Cupping Room, and Battery Gardens. Her band currently performs at the Bowery Wine Company and The Astor Room, as well as private parties, weddings and corporate events. She has performed with various artists while touring in Ireland, Spain and Argentina.

Tara’s repertory include jazz standards from the 1920s, 30s and 40s, as well as country and rock and roll oldies from the 1950s performed in her unique retro swing and blues style. So in any given set, you may hear Elvis’ Are You Lonesome Tonight, Etta James’ At Last, Patsy Cline’s Crazy, Peggy Lee’s Fever, Frank Sinatra’s Fly Me to the Moon, Ella Fitzgerald’s Cow Cow Boogie, Nat King Cole’s Frim Fram Sauce or Route 66, Edith Piaf’s La Vie En Rose, Audrey Hepburn’s version of Moon River from Breakfast At Tiffany’s, Billie Holiday’s Stars Fell On Alabama or All of Me, Nina Simone’s Since I Fell For You, Hank Williams’ Tennessee Waltz, Louis Armstrong’s What a Wonderful World, or Dean Martin’s You’re Nobody Til Somebody Loves You. As well as Blue Moon, Cheek to Cheek, I’ve Got the World On a String, On a Slow Boat to China, Black Coffee, Lullaby of Birdland, Stairway to the Stars, Pennies from Heaven, Why Don’t You Do Right, and You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To.
