Jazz vocalist Petra van Nuis shines in small settings
If people hear singer Petra van Nuis and guitarist Andy Brown at one of their dozens of monthly gigs around town, they might say, “Wow, they really make a great pair”. And indeed they do. The two were high school sweethearts who’ve been married for 15 years. Back in the day, she was into musical theater, and he was a blues guy. But they caught the jazz bug, sat at the feet of the music’s elder statesmen for years, and just soaked it all in. Petra and Andy stop by Morning Shift before their Thursday night gig at 27 Live in Evanston, part of the Live from the Whiskey Lounge series.
