April is Jazz Appreciation Month, and on April 24th “Las Vegas’ First Lady of Jazz” Michelle Johnson stars in “Happy Birthday Ella”, an intimate concert paying tribute to the great Ella Fitzgerald. The concert happens on the eve of what would have been Ella’s 101st birthday, and features the world class Uli Geissendoerfer Trio and some special guests.

The show is part of the popular Tuesday Night Jazz series that takes place every Tuesday in “The BackSpace”, a cozy backroom at producer Mark Shunock’s venue The Space, located at 3460 Cavaretta Ct, Las Vegas, NV 89103.

Michelle’s soaring vocals and ability to engage an audience in a dynamic, personal and intimate way have made her a favorite in cabarets and performing arts centers across the country. She has performed on Broadway, appeared, toured or recorded with legendary artists including Gladys Knight, Paul McCartney, Barbra Streisand, Elton John, and others, and she has starred in and executive produced several sold out shows in Las Vegas and elsewhere.

Come and hear the songs that made Ella great, and find out some things you may not have known about her. Michelle's liquid voice and unique style will engage you from the first note to the last. The show promises to be a great night of entertainment, and classic jazz. See you there!
