Without music, life would be a mistake.

…Friedrich Nietzsche

I sing with the Smith-Staelens Big Band the first Wednesday of every month at Tula’s in Belltown!  A labor of love led by my husband, Bruce Staelens, we perform original arrangements by Steve Sample, Mike Holober, Phil Burlin and other talented folks.

Check out our debut CD The Big Band Theory

I also share the stage with Joey Jewell and Jim Kerl’s Swingin’ 60’s Orchestra.
