JwJ w Susie Balistreri

Special Guest: Susie Balistreri

Jazz with Jim is a monthly concert hosted by Jim Burge and The Jazz Directions. The concert is best known for fusing personal stories by the musicians with popular jazz tunes suited for that month’s theme. Patrons can purchase home baked goods donated by the Center’s volunteers, which help complete the intimate ambience.

This month Jazz with Jim is proud to welcome special guest vocalist Susie Balistreri.  Susie comes from a musical family – her father and mother were professionals as well as her three brothers. Susie sang with her siblings, known as The Macar Brothers, popular as a pop/rock show band throughout the Tampa Bay area in the ‘80s. They all had strong leanings toward jazz, which they each turned to as their individual careers progressed.  Later, Susie became popular locally as a pop singer and chanteuse, until she quit to raise a family and put all of her effort into her consulting business.  Remaining active in music with her church, she is now returning to jazz as well, performing standards and modern styles with equal ease.
