The Tybee Post Theater launches its new Jazz Legends series with “The Queen of Cool: A Tribute to Miss Peggy Lee.” Miss Peggy Lee’s singing career, which spanned six decades, was punctuated by successful forays into songwriting, film acting, painting, and poetry and sculpture. Over 200 songs are credited to her as lyricist or composer, and she received an Academy Award nomination.
Miss Peggy Lee thrived on the love and energy she received from her audiences, so she worked doubly hard to deliver the best possible music and the best possible showmanship to earn and return that love. Her cool and calm demeanor on stage belied a vigorous and passionate approach to every performance – and a deep fear of failing to measure up.
Southern Holiday Jazz Band, with acclaimed vocalist Jane Ogle, will share the Peggy Lee story, playing 20 legendary songs, from “Manana” to “Somebody Else is Taking My Place,” and relating even more legends about The Queen of Cool. How she hit the big time with Benny Goodman in the 40’s, with Walt Disney in the 50’s, with Cy Coleman in the 60’s, a Grammy Award in the 70’s, and so much more.
