The goal of the BLU Project (Bless, Love, Unite) is to project joy, love, and positive energy to the community.
The BLU Project combines innovative arrangements of jazz classics, sensitive treatments of great pop and soul songs and original compositions of Dee Dee's to create a unique vibe that carries the great artisitc tradition forward into a future of musical possibilities. You'll feel the spirit of jazz royalty like Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan inhabiting a space where the sounds and songs of Sade and Bob Marley may also mix into a creative musical concept where glorious moments continually spring forth in a compelling improvising group dynamic.
This performance will also be dedicated to the spirit of the men and women honored through Armed Services Week.
Nicknamed "Ghost" for her vintage style and classic way of bringing forth the essence of a song, Dee Dee is a singer-songwriter, playwright, producer and actress with several albums to her credit and two new projects in pre-production. The musicians of the BLU Project gather from among the leaders of the Baltimore-Washington area's creative jazz community.
