PDX Jazz Series: La Rhonda Steele
September 15 • 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm• $15
LaRhonda returns to the Jazz Station for another evening of “stand up and groove music”. She will have you on your feet and rockin’ in no time flat!
LaRhonda won the 2016 Muddy Award for Best Female Vocalist presented by the Cascade Blues Association. LaRhonda began her musical journey in Jones, Oklahoma at age 13 singing her first solo in church. Her journey continued to Portland, Oregon and beyond. She’s worked with local, national and international artists: including Curtis Salgado, Tiara Memory Janice Marie Scroggins and Gino Vannelli.
Performing at the Lincoln Center with Obo Addy in 2005 and her yearly appearances at the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festivals are just a couple of the highlights of her career. She also enjoys working with her own band The LaRhonda Steele Band in which her husband Mark is the keyboardist and co-producer of their collaboration “Artistic Differences.”
