Some cool news: I recently had the honor of singing at the Hollywood Film Festival! I was lucky enough to sing my favorite jazz tunes with a five-piece band, The Gatsby Gang Jazz Band, and the evening was truly surreal. Red carpet and VIP pass oh my! I was getting strong Debbie-Renolds-in-Singin-in-the-Rain-Vibes and I am super okay with that. It was a night of fringe, flappers, glamorous performers, cameras everywhere, film screenings, and a party full of Hollywood hot shots. I will dig up some photos and hopefully video footage as it emerges into the web-o-sphere. If any press comes out with my image, I’ll share it here, but for now enjoy these pics of me and the band on the red carpet!
Definitely a career highlight. My first official red carpet but definitely not my last. I’m happy to have connected with a lot of lovely people and jazz folk. The showgirl in an ostrich costume and knife juggling tricycle rider definitely made my jaw drop.
That’s my update for now. I’ve been keeping very very busy with weddings and private events every weekend (what else is new) so I haven’t had much chance to post here, but if you’re looking for more insights into Jill adventures, follow me on instagram!
That’s where I’m most active and most often posting photos/ stories! So let’s be friends :)
If you’re looking to book our duo or trio for holiday entertainment (winter will be here in the blink of an eye) make sure to contact me soon! I’m probably only going to take one or two more winter holiday parties, so get that booking request in quick. In 2020 I’ll be scaling down the amount of weekend work I can take on and I’ll have a new contract and new fees to reflect the experience the last 5 years have given me! Not to scare anyone off, I just thought I’d put that out into the world :)
I’ll also have new videos up by the end of the year. I promise. I’m hoping to get back into the routine of posting a new video on my YouTube every week. In the meantime, watch my debut music video! It hasn’t gotten enough internet love in my humble opinion. I also haven’t promoted it much! But a reminder that I filmed and edited this puppy all myself, along with writing and performing the song and styling all my looks in the video :) Which was so much fun! So please give my baby video some love and hit ‘like’ and ‘subscribe’ (and send to a friend) if you enjoy it!
Thank you darlings. Your Hollywood Flapper Girl is signing off!
