About The Artist:
Virginia Jazz pianist and vocalist Connie Parker is affectionately known as “Lovely Lady C”. Her style ranges from traditional and progressive Jazz to R&B and popular music. Connie has been delighting lovers of Jazz throughout Hampton Roads and Central Virginia since her debut in 1975.
Connie Parker has been the opening act for Count Basie, Stanley Turrentine, Lou Rawls, Roy Ayers, Roberta Flack and Les McCann. She has also teamed with fellow Virginian Tommy Newsom of the “Tonight Show”, Pieces of a Dream, Donald Byrd, Hank Crawford and Arthur Prysock. In 1984, WRAP Radio Station awarded Connie the “Ella Fitzgerald Award for the Jazz Vocalist of the Year”. A phrase currently being used in local advertisements clearly describes her: “When Lady C Sings, it’s worth taking note”.
