Have you been searching for a refreshing new sound for your Jazz audience?
With "How About Rita?" you will have an original and pleasant surprise in the house! "How About Rita?" is an experienced and refined jazz quartet with a very original repertoire. Vintage vocal jazz is a term not often heard anymore.
We perform songs from the 40's and 50's that are groovy, cheerful, and nostalgic! These always danceable tunes may be popular songs from the past or they may come from musicals and theater.
Singer Angela van Rijthoven looks for songs that are or have been popular but are rarely played. Then the music is pleasantly arranged and the flamboyant front lady, along with virtuoso musicians Harry Kanters (piano), Bart Wouters (Bass) and Han Wouters (Drums) combine to make "How About Rita?" quite different from your typical trio with singer combination.
"How About Rita?" delivers a quality show that is full of musicality and joy.
Attending one of our concerts is a party, created by the musical and humorous chemistry between the musicians and your audience. Accessible, inviting, and never choosing the obvious,
"How About Rita?" guarantees a stimulating event that invites everyone to participate. AND!!, someone in your audience will win a delicious Shoo-Fly-Pie or Apple-Pandowdy!
