Besides being a marketing and communication consultant in my spare time, I manage a local NW band called The Side Project - described as light pop/jazz, contemporary and highly engaging and listenable. I would like to get them new, different gigs than the coffee house, happy hour scene. Our lead singer Suzie Bradford's sultry vocals are influenced by such artists as Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan & Aimee Mann. She's joined by guitarist/backup vocalist, and husband, Ben Bradford, and Adrian Libertini on stand-up bass and vocals. Their most recent albums are "Wake Up Call" and "Cover Up." My favorite songs across these albums are: Mr. Wonderful, Bathroom in a Bar, and Flower (original by Amos Lee). In addition, their version of Whitney Houston's, "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" was featured on Dancing With the Stars" and on "So You Think You Can Dance" in 2012.
