June 13 – Nashville to Vaudeville!

The Whitings have performed their musical show Nashville to Vaudeville! and Nashville to Vaudeville - New Orleans! at theatres and special events in 26 states, bringing laughs and tears to all who witness this wonderful visit to the theatres of yesteryear. They borrow from the greats of the Vaudeville stage: Burns and Allen, Abbott and Costello, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Judy Garland, George Gershwin, W.C. Handy, Jelly Roll Morton, Ma Rainey, Red Skelton, Bessie Smith, Willie The Lion Smith, Fats Waller, Ed Wynn and many others. They play a unique combination of traditional high energy swing, with scatting and singing in harmony, and soulful blues-influenced jazz ballads, adding stand-up comedy and dance to provide a satisfying multi-faceted show. Tammy’s soulful contralto, influenced by female jazz royalty has inspired audiences at every performance. Jamey’s prodigious piano style and his Art Tatum-inspired right hand, is a distinguishing standout in their show. Together they present a show replete with soulful vocals, scatting with harmony, comedy, two-fisted piano and dance.
