Some pictures from my CD Release Show at the Metropolitan Room, November 8, 2014 along with a review:
Sonya Perkins celebrated her third CD, “Dream A Little Dream” at the Metropolitan Room. This gig was played to a full house. She was joined by a terrific team of highly acclaimed musicians: musical director Bob Albanese (p), John Benitez (b), Dwayne ‘Cook’ Broadnax (d) and Josh Evans (tpt)…Her great autobiographical comic bit of her transition of psychotherapist to jazz vocalist set to the classic, “I Will Survive” had the crowd roaring. She delivered refreshingly unique interpretations of familiar lyrics… Watch for future appearances and get the CD. —Joe Regan Jr., Jazz Journalist.
"Sonya had a wonderful encore performance at the Metropolitan Room, NYC, May 16 with a great swing band behind her. The Room was packed with singers, musicians, and music lovers from NYC and Long Island...
Perkins, has one of the purest vocal instruments of jazz singers of today and she embellishes that with an acting performance and unique phrasing, giving life to the lyrics she sings and swings on...her dramatic pauses were emotionally true and, again, her brilliant phrasing was unique and on the nose."--Joe Regan, Jr., Theater Pizzazz
