Pamela Rose presents Wild Women of Song is designed to meet a variety of presenter's needs:
Concert/multimedia show - Using a stage, projector and screen, Pamela Rose leads her 5 piece band while dramatic images are projected from our laptop. Some modifications in size of band in accordance with venue size and budget are negotiable. One 90 minute set or 2 - 45 min sets. (Backline needed: Piano, drum kit, bass amp, plus projector and screen)
Outdoor Concerts or venues without Projector/Screen - Pamela Rose and her world class band puts on a swinging, sultry concert featuring songs written by blues and jazz women songwriters. A romping, delightful concert still peppered with fascinating background detail about the Wild Women of Song.
Educational Outreach/Community Centers - Using a screen and one or two musicians, Rose delivers an hour show/mini-history lesson followed by a Q & A from audience. Especially effective for High School, College and Senior audiences.
"WOW, what an amazing show!!! The power of Pamela, that music and her band's talent is enough to recommend this show, but the wonderful message and history of women in music make this an extraordinary event. Our students LOVED it - we're huge fans of WILD WOMEN." Mike Fisher, School Director, Academy of Arts and Academics, Springfield OR
(Backline required: piano, screen, bass amp, pa and projector).
