Bake’s Place to Host Visiting Songbirds Series


Vocalists Nancy King, Rebecca Parris and Nancy Kelly are among several jazz vocalists who will perform at Bake’s Place as part of the club’s Visiting Songbirds series that launches in January and runs through the summer.

Bake’s Place, located in Issaquah, Wash., recently underwent remodeling to increase seating capacity to 74.

Some of the other artists scheduled to perform as part of the series include pianist/vocalist Jennifer Scott and saxophonist Kirsten Strom, Madeline Eastman, Latin vocalist Kat Parra, Jackie Ryan, bassist/vocalist Belinda Underwood with pianist Benny Green, Jeni Fleming, Amandah Jantzen and Denise Perrier.

“We’re thrilled to be able to bring in these wonderful singers,” said Craig Baker, who owns and operates Bake’s Place. “For some of them, it will be their first time performing in the Seattle area.”
