The eternally popular vocalist/pianist Andrea Hopkins returns to SNL for an evening of jazz standards.
Andrea Hopkins started her singing career in Atlanta where she made a name for herself before hitting the Asia hotel circuit, finally landing in Tokyo. The busy singer has performed at virtually every major live house, club and hotel from Tokyo to Kyoto and has recorded with artists ranging from Japanese pop idol Ayumi Hamasaki to rock icon Elvis Costello. She handles dance songs, funk, and hip-hop. But her first love is jazz. "When I am doing Jazz, I feel like I am so free," she says.
On this trip to the club, Andrea will be backed by the talented and versatile pianist Peter St. Ledger.
As always, it's FREE. No music charge. No cover charge. You can't beat the FCCJ's SNL for an economical night out in Tokyo.
