Cynthia Kaay Bennet, Jazz Vocalist

Entertainment Sponsorship

Thank you to D & P Communications and Lincoln Financial Securities for underwriting the costs of entertainment during the Expo!

The Adrian Area Chamber of Commerce welcomes jazz vocalist Cynthia Kaay Bennett to the Business Expo from 5 – 7 pm. Cynthia will be performing with guitarist Matt LoRusso as background entertainment in the expo hall. She combines her jazz standards past, a bluesy flair and a sensitive take on original tunes to bring a distinctive sound to her performances.

Cynthia has been performing since 2001 with intimate jazz trios as well as big bands all across the country. Her performances range from touring with the U.S. Continental Army Jazz Band with a final show at the Savannah Jazz Festival, to performing with jazz trios in upscale jazz clubs in the South, Midwest, and along the Southeastern coast. She receives great reviews from musicians, club owners, radio personalities, jazz critics, and her audiences.

Her three jazz CDs, “Wish I Knew”, “That’s the Spirit” and “Dreams of You” have received airplay on over 50 radio stations in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia.

All three of Cynthia’s jazz CDs can be heard on Spotify and YouTube, as well as downloaded and/or purchased in full from CDBaby, Amazonmusic.com, TheOrchard.com, iTunes, and other digital format providers.
