Vocalist Trish Hatley is one of the most beloved and enduring figures on the Northwest music scene. Known for her easy sense of swing, beautiful tone and innate sensitivity to the music, she effectively balances technical mastery with genuine accessibility, making her extremely popular among jazz fans everywhere she performs.
Hatley is also one of the hardest working musicians around. She performs and records with her own band, the Trish Hatley Quintet, as well as the vocal jazz trio Trish, Hans & Phil. Trish performs regularly at festivals, nightspots and concerts throughout the Northwest. Showtime for this performance is 6PM.
"When I think of Trish, the first word that comes to mind is dazzling. Her ability to captivate the audience while inspiring the musicians has made Trish one of our most requested soloists." —Dr. Paul Cobb, Conductor, Everett Symphony
"This slim brunette does it all with a style and energy suffused with a self effacing wit and possesses a soulful soprano voice!" —Nancy Wollbeck, Anacortes American
