Lisa Webster discovered her love for jazz standards after seeing her hero Sarah Vaughn perform live at the Ohio Theater in 1984. She decided to shift her studies at the Capital University Conservatory of Music to Jazz Studies, and with Vaughn Wiester, “the master of all things jazz”, as her friend, instructor and mentor, Lisa’s vocal skills and musicianship began to blossom quickly.
Her debut was with Wiester and his Famous Jazz Orchestra, and she performed with salsa band Yumbambe’ with Eric Paton. Lisa later became the vocalist for the Standard Time Quintet with Matt Ellis, and continues to appear as a featured vocalist with the Famous Jazz Orchestra, and has been featured with the Jazz Arts Group of Columbus.
Performing with Lisa for this show at Natalie’s will be Matt Paetsch (bass), Danny Bauer (piano), and Joe Ong (drums).
