As one reviewer said, “Joëlle Rabu is Edith Piaf, Bette Midler, and Carole Burnett all rolled into one extraordinary performer. Her passion-filled voice is spine-tingling and her stage presence electric.” Known for her ability to delve into several musical styles, Rabu’s interpretation of classic European cabaret-style tunes and jazz melodies, her rich vocal timbre and engaging stage presence, her heart wrenching torch songs and comedic moments have left audiences spellbound and on their feet for more than three decades.
Joëlle is accompanied by her son, rising arranger/composer/pianist, Nico Rhodes, a gifted musician who uses his extensive piano skills to frame the intimate power of his mother’s superb vocal interpretations. From Piaf to Minnelli, Cole Porter to Neil Young and every style in between, this rich, eclectic repertoire is the fodder that combines musicality and theatricality into an unforgettable evening.
