Joey Arias Sings Billie Holliday

Lighting Deisnger, Contemporary Arts Center, 2015

"Cabaret singer, jazz vocalist, songwriter, cult film star, theater artist, drag performer, fashion icon—Joey Arias defies categorization. Long acclaimed for “channeling Billie Holiday” (New Yorker), Arias has gone on to establish himself as a world-class entertainer, touring internationally and starring in lavish theatrical productions including Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity and Arias with a Twist. In celebration of Lady Day’s 100th birthday, he presents a lushly–orchestrated, rarely performed all-Holiday program. The performance will feature a live band comprised of some of the brightest local musicians from New Orleans’ vibrant music scene." -Contemporary Arts Center
