Detroit MI. - In honor of Black History Month, Unlimited Sky Production and The Preservation proudly presents The Black Bottom Jazz Showcase featuring 3 amazing tributes on one stage, for one night only. THE ANITA O' DAY TRIBUTE, male jazz revue - TAKE 5 , female jazz revue - THE SATIN DOLL REVUE on February 25, 2023 in the Bert's Warehouse Theater 2739 Russell Detroit, MI.

Like the fine rides made in the Motor City back in the day this one’s firing on all cylinders. Step back in time as classic Detroit hostSonny Wilson, played by Mike Bonner, takes us on a trip through the passages of jazz using the songs and stories of great women and men in their field.

It all started twenty years ago when Multi - Detroit Music Award Sky Covington put together a tribute show to Billie Holiday and it hasn’t stopped since. In 2022 the Satin Doll Revue includes vocalist like, Bessie Smith, Sarah Vaughan, Dinah Washington, Etta James, Nina Simone, Carmen Mcrae, Lena Horne, and Nancy Wilson. There, after her all male revue, Take 5 took the stage. Spotlighting jazz greats like Louis Armstong, Mile Davis, Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra, just to name a few. Her newest production to date, The Golden Days of Jazz, featuring Anita O' Day, Peggy Lee and Dakota Stanton But it’s more than just jazz, it’s theater, it’s a history lesson, it’s a downright great time. Each of the vocalist and musicians are native Detroiters involved in the music scene in a variety of levels and we are so excited to take this show on a bigger stage.

The Black Bottom Jazz Showcase will take place at Bert's Warehouse Theater. February 25, 2023. Tickets are on sale now for $45 general admission. Premier seating is available by special request & slightly higher. For more information: 248.383.3385
