Jazz vocalist Synia Carroll has a unique ability to use her deep, silky-smooth voice to engage with her audiences and establish a connection few singers are able to achieve. In 2008, while singing with the Brian Butler Group, Synia found her love for jazz standards and great vocal artists like Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Nancy Wilson and Sarah Vaughn. Synia has headlined numerous concerts at the Florida Studio Threatre in Sarasota, the Palladium Side Door and the American Stage, both in St. Petersburg; and the Jazz Club of Sarasota’s “Jazz At Two” series.
La Lucha is a Tampa Bay based trio that consists of three best friends from three different parts of the world: Colombia (Alejandro Arenas), Mexico (John O’Leary), & United States (Mark Feinman). Their music ventures boldly into a wide variety of musical styles, offering an appealing and fun mix of genres under the jazz umbrella. The combination of their musical versatility and varied musical influences makes for compelling virtuosic performances. Through an engaging stage presence and high level of interaction, La Lucha brings the audience into their world.
