Jennifer McNulty lends her smooth and sultry vocal stylings to ballads, standards and bubbling swing numbers. The Boilermaker Jazz Band has performed at major international venues, including Lincoln Center and the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City and the Edinburgh International Festival in Scotland. During this concert, you’ll enjoy present the best of Goodman’s small band classics, big band themes and great tunes made famous by “Goodman’s Gals.”
