    We're pleased to welcome back Gretje Angell! Performing with her will be Stu Freedman on Piano, Larry Hunsicker on bass, and Rich Moore on drums.

    "Gretje Angell's voice is like honey on velvet."  ~ Sunny Wilkinson

    Gretje entrances with her dulcet tones and brings the audience along on a journey with her throughout her performances. Originally hailing from Akron, OH, as a third generation musician, music has been in her heart and soul from an early age.  

    Mainly influenced by Anita O'Day, Chet Baker, Ella Fitzgerald, and Carmen McRae, Gretje’s sense of rhythm and phrasing - with a pure, even tone to match - is inspired by these jazz greats. Her tongue dances lightly over both Brazilian rhythms and swing, giving into the music with improvisational performances, making her a tour de force on the scene and rivaling contemporary vocalists such as the much admired Cyrille Aimee and Diana Krall.

    She can currently be heard performing with guitarist/music producer, Dori Amarilio, who is producing her much-anticipated upcoming debut album, as well as the acclaimed Ladd McIntosh Swing Orchestra, Jack’s Cats - a swing sextet, and Glen Garrett’s Big Band, in addition to her own configurations of artists.

    Gretje is also a professionally trained opera singer, performing in Los Angeles. In 2013, she joined the Los Angeles Metropolitan Opera Company and has had the great pleasure of performing Pamina in The Magic Flute, Ilia in Idomeneo, Oscar in Un Ballo in Maschera, Tebaldo in Don Carlo, and the Voice of the High Priestess in Aida.

    Whether she's performing jazz or using her beautiful lyric coloratura soprano voice in an opera, Gretje brings takes the audience on a fantastical journey with each performance she gives.

    Gretje lives in Los Angeles and performs nationally and internationally. A purist at heart, and working with the world’s top musicians, has solidified Gretje’s role as the darling of the underground jazz scene - where Jazz is Jazz.

    Pub Bricco is pleased to welcome back Helen Welch! Come check out her jazzy arrangements of everything from Broadway to standards to the Beatles.


    Helen Welch is a critically-acclaimed vocalist whose live stage performances explore a diverse range of musical compositions, starting with the 1930s up through present-day. Whether she’s singing Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee and Sarah Vaughan, or Elton John, Sting and Randy Newman, Helen’s sophisticated vocals and humor leave audiences breezily enchanted. The “Helen Welch experience” is perhaps best described by a fan who wrote on her Amazon page, “If you have a chance to see Helen perform, do it! You are in for a special treat.”

    A native of England, Helen is well-known throughout the United Kingdom for her musical theatre roles and 1-woman shows. Upon moving to the U.S. in 2003, she began appearing in venues throughout the Northeast. Her unique talents for choosing songs that stand the test of time and making them her own, and her ability to intimately engage her audience, quickly earned her a large and devoted following.

    Helen is equally at home performing in intimate spaces for small groups as in outdoor amphitheatres in front of thousands. She appears in the region’s most celebrated entertainment establishments including Severance Hall, Cleveland's Playhouse Square Center, Akron Civic Theatre, Blossom Music Center, the Chautauqua Institute and many more. She frequently guest-stars or headlines with world-class musical organizations such as The Cleveland Orchestra, The Columbus Symphony Orchestra, The Cleveland Pops Orchestra and The Akron Symphony to name just a few.
