Miss Tess & The Talkbacks
This concert has been moved into the Music Center lobby due to weather. Please leave coolers and chairs in cars, but feel free to bring a small blanket! Stroller parking is available by the Coat Room. Please note that admission is first come, first serve and limited to our maximum allowable capacity for the space.
Miss Tess has a sultry, jazzy sound that’s hard to pin down. Her music doesn’t really fit in any one box—except maybe a jukebox from a retro diner. She’s got a cool, old school vibe that is rootsy and eclectic and it’s driving critics wild. Pop Matters raved that Miss Tess “deftly traverses the borderlines between early Tom Waits-esque lounge ballads, old timey country, a dollop of folk rock and a sprinkle of catchy jazz.” Tess got her start in Maryland, the daughter of swing band musicians, and we are thrilled to welcome her home.
