8.28.2014 - Ruth Hellkamp

Pianist  RUTH HELLKAMP  has a lifetime fascination with the music of George Gershwin.  Through her thirty-plus year career locally at a the Desmond Hotel, playing in their Scrimshaw Room, she gradually has added many more layers to her musical veneer with the works of:   Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, Michel LeGrand, and Harold Arlen,  resulting in her own unique recognizable style.  She is joined with  well known local jazz bassist,  Pete Toigo, familiar to many Stockade Inn patrons.  Both have a passion for music of  the Great American Songbook, and favor playing old jazz standards.


Having studied at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, and Xavier University, her obvious classical training shines through her jazz arrangements. Known for her encyclopedic sized repertoire, her fans having been returning for decades to hear her.  Often

mentioned on  NPR's "Jazz After Hours, (a Peabody award winning show), she has  done LIVE  performances on WAMC, and  WGY. Chosen by WNYT-TV as a "Today's Woman" in February, 2011, highlighting her musical longevity, she continues to  "rub elbows" with the music icons  who walk thru the Desmond doors stopping to "talk shop" with the likes of:   Tony Bennett, Henry Mancini, Dave Brubeck, Charlie Hayden, BB King, Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, and many more.  Not bad, for someone who was hired for a "one night fill-in" back in l980, and ended up staying for 34 years!

8.29.2014 - Sonny & Perley

The exciting duo of Sonny Daye and Perley Rousseau achieves a rare musical symbiosis. The husband and wife team have spent the last several years developing and perfecting their unique blend of Jazz, Brazilian and International Cabaret which has become their musical signature. They engagingly perform the timeless standards of the Great American Songbook su! ch as Gershwin, Berlin and Porter as well as the irresistible Brazilian melodies of Antonio Carlos Jobim.  They keep a busy schedule touring with their trio, quartet or quintet performing for concerts, festivals and cabaret shows. Their three CD releases "Love Dance" 1996, "East of the Sun" 1999, and "Let It Happen" 2004 have generated international air play and received critical acclaim. It is in live performance, however, where Sonny and Perley truly shine. Throughout New York, New England and in Europe, the duo has captivated audiences with their warmth, musical honesty and broad repertoire often sprinkled with spontaneous, charming and humorous banter that only a 20 year marriage can enliven!
