Perez

Perez sings songs from the American Songbook. Her voice is strong in the tradition of the masters, such as Anita O'Day , Nina Simone and Julie London.

Perez Band is a NYC-based group that embodies classic jazz music highlighting Frank Sinatra classics and the American Songbook. The band started when vocalist Perez returned to America after living in Europe for 12 years as a jazz artist. She met Art Hirahara and they struck up a musical friendship. Both interested in playing the great classic jazz tunes, bossa novas, ballads — and now with Jed Levy, Tom Hubbard, and Eric Halvorson. The band members play frequently around Boston, DC, and Japan, appearing at several prestigious venues in the NYC area including the Kitano Hotel and Metropolitan Room. The band features Perez on vocals, Art Hirahara on piano, Tom Hubbard on upright bass, and Eric Halvorson on drums, and Jed Levy on Flute.
