A captivating and attractive young Ashley Krohn from right here in the Glade, and the popular Joe Rice Quartet are set to give RHA members a night to remember as they entertain the RHA Residents at 6 P.M. on Monday, Aug. 27, at Druid Hills Legends.
Krohn has been appearing a lot lately with Dennis Donald and DSquared Productions, Mirror Lake Blast, R & B Café with Regina and Patty Payne and for special music at the Glade United Methodist Church.
“Ashley has the voice of an angel who can sing anything. She is not only very talented but also a sweet young lady, eager to work to pursue her dream of becoming a professional singer,” according to Diane Donald.
Originally from Michigan, she has been staying here with her grandparents, with her grandmother just passing away recently from cancer. Krohn works at Advanced Rehabilitation during the week.
Accompanying Krohn will be the always local favorite, Joe Rice and his outstanding musicians Dick Walter on bass, Tom Martin on drums, Harold Hughes, guitarist, and Joe Rice, saxophonist.
Walter is a New Yorker who studied with the noted bassist Bobby Haggart and performed with studio bands and combos such as Benny Goodman and Skitch Henderson.
Martin is an Ohio State grad who minored in music and majored in optometry, playing many times in the pit at the Cumberland County Playhouse.
Hughes is recognized as the finest guitarist in middle Tennessee. Joe Rice formed his first music group at the age of 14 and is proud to note that he has been performing for over 50 years with a life-time union card.
All in all, you are in for a great evening of music and entertainment. Don’t miss it! Call in those reservations now, or no later than Aug. 23, to June or Larrilee Frazier at 484-5914. You can also email to [email protected] .
