3Divas Jazz Trio This super-swingin’ powerhouse trio plays original, traditional, and contemporary standards from all genres of music, with their own unique style, innovative arrangements, and effervescent musical joy. Sherrie, Amy, and Jackie met in May of 2014 at the Cleveland Playhouse while playing in The DIVA Jazz Orchestra as part of Maurice Hines’ award-winning show Tappin’ Thru Life. Their energy clicked immediately and the resulting musical synergy was fast and fierce...or as the New York Times said…Blistering Hot! From their first shared downbeat, they became kindred-swinging spirits. They are elated to share their music with you and they swing hard...on purpose, with purpose!
