Tanya Scarlett and her ‘A-Team’ band perform smooth-as-silk rhythm and blues

“Yes, I call them my A-Team, because they are such a joy to perform with,” lead singer, Tanya Scarlett says. “As musicians, they don’t come any better.”

Scarlett, a longtime resident of Nevada County, should know. She’s recorded with Michael Bolton (‘Love is a Wonderful Thing’) and opened for Joe Cocker.

She’s headlined at L.A.’s legendary Cafe Largo, performed with Canned Heat and Tower of Power. In other words, her pedigree is first class. Her band’s credentials are equally impressive. Michael Warren on bass, Ahaguna G. Sun on drums, Greg Sankovich on keyboard and Grant Reeves on saxophone are highly acclaimed, award winning musicians who have played with many of music’s most prestigious names.

Their repertoire includes Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together,’ the Isley Brothers’ ‘For the Love of You’ as well as romantic classics such as ‘The Nearness of You.’

“These are some of the finest musicians I’ve ever worked with,” Scarlett says with a confident smile, “and I promise Kane’s diners are in for an evening of superb music and outstanding food in a beautiful, garden setting. I’ve wanted to do dinner shows in Nevada County for a long time, and now it’s happening.”
