Celebrate the music of Columbus native and multiple Grammy winner Nancy Wilson with the dynamic vocalist Mary McClendon and the talented Bobby Floyd Trio. Mary McClendon has been on the jazz scene since graduating from Marion Franklin High School and the Columbus College of Art & Design. Her smooth vocals and scat singing have made her an audience favorite over the years. She’s shared the stage with many jazz greats, and has performed regularly with the Columbus Jazz Orchestra, Ballet Met, and the Columbus Symphony.
Bobby Floyd’s talent has launched him into a very rewarding career, making him one of the favorite, first-call pianists/organists for many well-known artists. He has traveled the world accompanying Ray Charles on piano and organ, and currently makes guest appearances with some of the most distinguished orchestras, including The Boston Pops, The Rochester Philharmonic, and The Detroit Symphony.
