Round two features Rose Winebrenner & Ken Valdez!
Rose Winebrenner aka Chicago Rose is a Musical Entertainer with a career spanning 30 years. She was the original Lead Singer and Vocal Arranger for Cirque du Soleil's ZAiA spectacle, a resident show in Macau. While living in Asia, Rose also co-created a full-length original Musical Theatre work, Melodia, whose world premier debuted with a cast of 100 youths in Hong Kong. Rose is the current Lead Singer, Flutist and Composer for ALIS, a nouvelle cirque show by Le Cirque with the World's Top Performers based in Italy. When she's on break from the circus, Rose resides in the US, plays live Dueling Pianos and solo shows, and is a Studio Music Producer.
Ken Valdez fuses elements of blues, rock, funk and Latin music to create a sound all his own. His latest release "Soul Renegade" was met with critical acclaim and featured appearances/collaborations with a few well known special guests ranging from guitar phenoms like Eric Gales and Doyle Bramhall II to members of Fleetwood Mac and even Prince's rhythm section. It also caught the attention of the legendary Billy Gibbons who asked Ken to open his recent solo tour and then go on the road with the iconic ZZ Top. Currently, like the majority of his peers, Valdez took some time off from touring due to the global pandemic. While sheltering in place he finished a new record which should be released in the very near future. This world class guitarist/singer/songwriter/producer brings something fresh to the musical landscape with his unique melodic, rhythmic sounds. Whether he is playing with his full band or performing solo/acoustic, you will find his music is moving, heartfelt and genuine with no denying that he can burn like a wildfire and shake your very soul.
This show is free and open to guests 21 & older.
