The Royal Bopsters are Amy London, Darmon Meader, Dylan Pramuk, Holli Ross
& Trio + Special Guests:
With singers ranging from age 33 to 93 (Jon Hendricks 94th Birthday is 9/16!), The Royal Bopsters Project is a multi-generational vocal summit on which the talents of singers Amy London, Darmon Meader, Dylan Pramuk and Holli Ross unite in harmony to pay tribute to the art of vocalese singing. The five vocalese pioneers featured on The Royal Bopsters each helped to invent the ‘vocalese’ art form: NEA Jazz Masters and Grammy Award-winners Jon Hendricks and Annie Ross (b.1930) who together represent two thirds of the pioneering vocalese group Lambert, Hendricks & Ross; NEA Jazz Master Sheila Jordan (b.1928); and Arkansas Hall of Famer and Schoolhouse Rock mastermind Bob Dorough (b. 1923) each take a turn in the guest spotlight. *Legendary vocalist Andy Bey fills in for Bopster Mark Murphy who is unable to perform. With Steve Schmidt (piano) Sean Smith (bass) Steve Williams (drums) Steve Kroon (percussion) Roni Ben Hur (guitar).
