Tania Grubbs has been singing as long as she can remember - from concert stage, to theatre stage, to nightclub bandstand - in front of an audience performing great literature is where she shines. Tania has been fortunate to perform in many wonderful venues, singing many different genres. She is a graduate of Youngstown State University. While a student there she gravitated toward singing and learning about jazz, starting with the classic American Songbook. Tania focused on listening to every vocalist she could get her hands on, and whenever possible, she would seize every singing opportunity.
At one such occasion many years ago, at a jazz session is where she met her husband bassist, Jeff Grubbs. Jeff’s career landed the couple in South Florida where they lived for 5 years. While in Florida Tania sang in many jazz clubs, performed in numerous concert setting and theatre productions. Tania was a featured vocalist with the Florida Philharmonic, and a “voice” of Boca Raton Pops Orchestra for 3 years. Then, in 1996, Jeff landed his position with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
Today you will most likely hear Tania singing with her own jazz quartet, The Tania Grubbs Quartet, featuring Jeff on Bass. She is also a part of TRAVLIN' an exciting quintet of musicians who play soulful, beautiful, honest, accessible songs. She is also the Co-Music Director of the Fairmont Pittsburgh, helping to oversee Jazz at Andys, a 3 night per week series.
