Who could imagine a speakeasy in a church basement?
The Ingersoll Theatre of Performing Arts is continuing its FUNdRAISE the ROOF! series with The Sweet Sounds of Soul.
Sweet Sounds will have one performance – May 10 at 7:30 p.m. – with the doors opening at 6:30 p.m. The show will feature Denise Pelley, one of the region’s best-known and accomplished vocalists, and longtime musician Marque Smith.
“I define soul music as music that fills the soul with goodness, smiles, and memories,” Pelley said. “We’ve picked some of our favourite songs that are meaningful.”
She added they’ll be playing songs from Burt Bacharach, Billie Holiday, Stevie Wonder and Bill Withers, among others.
