Special Guest

Rhonda Denét is hailed as a virtuoso that lends her flair to every song she sings. Her repertoire covers the gamut ranging from the American Songbook to Top 40 radio in addition to her inspirational original compositions. Based in Jersey City, New Jersey, the jazz/soul vocalist, songwriter and bandleader makes a full-time living doing what she LOVES.

Denét grew up in Washington, DC and realized that music would be a driving force in her life at an early age. Her commitment to following her passion brought her to New York where she earned a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from New York University. Her entrepreneurial spirit inspired her to further her studies at Florida State University where she earned a Master of Arts in Arts Administration. Following her graduate studies, Denét returned to New York City with a conviction not only to become an active member of its vibrant musical community but to create new opportunities that would reflect her soulful artistic expression.

Her professional career allows her to perform throughout the New York metropolitan region and across the country with appearances at concert halls, theaters, clubs, resorts, museums and premier wedding venues. Denét performs regularly with her band The Bad Cats, as a lead vocalist for The Kazz Music Orchestra, and as a cast member of the Off-Broadway show, “The Gong Show LIVE.” In addition she is proud to be the founder and primary performer for the Silver Fox Songs showcase series, a program which brings live music to appreciative populations at various community service organizations and celebrates American classics from Jazz to Soul.

In 2010, she released a self-produced EP of original music entitled Another Day which was followed by a full length LIVE album, “Bliss & The Eclectic Soul” in the Spring of 2013. Her latest project, “Perfectly Human,” was released in January 2017. More information about Rhonda Denet and her work can be found on the web at www.RhondaDenetMusic.com.
