Two of Cleveland most unique acts on one night!

Haunting, serene, and always captivatingly beautiful, Uno Lady creates spell like loops, spinning you into her musical web. You'll be stunned by what she can do with her great voice and a loop pedal. Her unique talent has been acknowledged with various awards, including the prestigious Creative Workforce Fellowship, Best Voice, and Top Band to Watch.

Powerhouse 5 is a jazz sextet that plays the music of Raymond Scott, a composer and polymath whose frenetic and funny music has long influenced cartoon soundtracks, from Looney Toons to the Simpsons. It includes six of Cleveland's most in-demand jazz musicians: Darren Allen, George Foley, Larry Herman, Tom Lempner, Bill Nichols, and Don Turoso.


“This one-woman choir uses a microphone, small mixer and loop pedal perched on a podium to create an emotional musical experience. Each performance is a little bit different as Uno Lady uses her pedalboard to layer haunting melodies with syncopated beats on top of rich soundscapes to create her distinctly transportive music.”

“You may not have heard of the composer, inventor, and visionary Raymond Scott, but you know his music. The tunes he wrote for the Raymond Scott Quintette - the only six-man quintet in musical history - featured in scores of cartoons in the 1940s and 50s. The zany energy of numbers such as Dinner Music for a Pack of Hungry Cannibals, War Dance for Wooden Indians, or Twilight in Turkey - Scott had a flair for titles - brought Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny to life.”
