Binti Bailey and the Jocelyn Michelle Quartet
One of Kona's favorite performers, Binti (pronounced Bean-tea), sings blues, classical, jazz to soul with a buttery voice that seems to stop time. All attention turns to her stage. She aims to uplift, with an engaging performance on jazz vocals, and occasionally, the flute and keyboards. Jocelyn brings a fresh approach to classics, pop tunes and originals featuring the Hammond B3 organ! Jocelyn brings together some of the best Jazz Musicians on the island for a lovely evening of live jazz.
