Jazz musician Jacqui Naylor will perform a special show in Oakland, California, on Thursday to benefit the San Francisco Domestic Violence Consortium.
50% of the proceeds from the performances taking place on January 28th will benefit the charity, where Jacqui has lent her voice in support for more than a decade. The organization was founded in 1982 and is a network of seventeen domestic violence service agencies that come together with the goal of providing high quality, coordinated and comprehensive services to San Francisco’s victims of domestic abuse.
“This organization means a great deal to me and it works hard to help people even with state budget cuts and a slowed economy. I want to help,” says Jacqui.
Known for her interpretative capabilities and wide vocal range, Jazz Times heralded Jacqui as “an incomparable triple threat, serving up classic covers with the best of them, delivering top-drawer originals and inspiring with the musical marriage she calls acoustic smashing.” This technique is where Jacqui sings jazz standards over rock classics or vice versa, like Gershwins’ “Summertime” over The Allman Brothers’ “Whipping Post” or Rodgers & Hart’s “My Funny Valentine” over AC/DC’s “Back in Black.”
The show will take place at Yoshi’s, 510 Embarcadero West, Oakland, on January 28. Tickets are $20 for the 8pm show and $15 for the 10pm show.
