A dynamic presence on every bandstand she graces, singer Ms Kennedy brings a captivating soulfulness to the proceedings on the Kennedy Administration’s self-titled debut.
With credits ranging from Stevie Wonder, Gregory Porter and Andra Day to Lauryn Hill and a roster of acclaimed “musician’s musicians” in between, the Kennedy Administration’s instrumental trio has seen, heard and played a lot of great music over the past few years.
The band has been refining their sound and irresistible stage presence for three years at their Groove residency in NYC. With this quartet’s singular namesake at the microphone, Kennedy, you’ll experience right away how hard it is not to be captured by her joy and energy. Forging a sound and identity for itself, the Kennedy Administration is creating sensory, soulful modern jazz with elements of R&B, hip-hop and pop judiciously applied. You will move to the rhythms of Nat Townsley and feel every vibe Ondre J plays when the funk, jazz and R&B sounds leave the keys.
Kennedy’s joy and passion are contagious. This particular Kennedy Administration is ushering in a brand new “Great Society” of sweet music.
