Award-winning jazz vocalist Melanie O'Reilly returns to her native Dublin to celebrate the legendary jazz singer Anita O'Day, - and other female jazz vocalists, - capturing the essence of unconventional musical icons.

Inspired by the smoky swinging style of Anita O Day, and other iconic jazz vocalists, Melanie's riveting performances have garnered her 4-star reviews and standing ovations wherever she performs, whether at the International Edinburgh Fringe Festival, at major jazz venues & festivals in Europe, or more recently in San Francisco Bay Area, California, bringing new life to the memory of O'Day and other jazz vocal legends, in a way that is utterly unique, contemporary and brilliantly exciting.

Melanie has recently wowed audiences with her show in California, and has performed to packed houses in San Francisco, with "standing room only" in popular hip venues such as Bird & Beckett, or the Black Cat, and she is delighted to return to Dublin for a special supper - concert event. 'I'm thrilled with the enthusiastic response to our Anita O'Day tribute. It's wonderful to see audiences across generations and continents rediscovering the life and music of this inspiring jazz legend."

"The show is a celebration, and O'Reilly makes every number her own ..effortlessly, rhythmic backbeats, sultry, soulful crooning in virtuoso style." Edinburgh Festival ****

"Melanie O'Reilly does more than pay tribute to Anita O'Day. She brings the great singer's spirit back to life, recalling her unique way of scatting, varying tempos, bending and stretching melodies and generally transforming everything she sang."
Grainne Farren, Jazz Journalist

"Melanie O'Reilly with her show in celebration of Anita O'Day brings us up close to this Irish American jazz icon. It is to me, a case of "O'Dayja Vu" such is Melanie's success in conjuring up Anita's jazz era & the vibrant life which accompanied her unique art. A great show & a marvelous night out !"
