Acclaimed singer/songwriter and pianist Jon Regen will make his Cheltenham Jazz Festival debut on Wednesday, May 1 in the UK, supporting legendary singer Dionne Warwick. Regen will be touring Europe in support of his new Sly Dog/Mack Avenue Records release REVOLUTION, out March 26.
“It’s a thrill for me to perform at the Cheltenham Festival, especially as support for Dionne Warwick,” Regen says. “I remember growing up in her home state of New Jersey and being taken with her voice and seemingly effortless vocal ability. I’m quite sure that when I started singing later in my career, I took more than a few cues from her. She’s influenced countless singers and musicians the world over.”
The 2013 edition of the storied Cheltenham Jazz Festival also features such notable artists as Ravi Coltrane, Gregory Porter, and the New Gary Burton Quartet. Tickets for Dionne Warwick with Jon Regen are available online here.
