* Vocalist: Paula Johns
Paula is an accomplished jazz vocalist and cabaret artist. She has received numerous accolades from audiences in Philadelphia, Atlantic City, New York and the U.S. Virgin Islands with her sassy, animated interpretations of great Broadway tunes and the "standards" from "The Great American Songbooks" of Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern and many others.

Though often compared to Ella Fitzgerald, Paula brings her own distinctive panache to each song she sings...her passion igniting the emotions of her audiences and allowing them to feel the story that each song tells.


Keeping live music alive!
