The free Twilight Tuesdays Concert Series is held from 6 to 8 p.m. on the museum’s front lawn. The museum is located in Forest Park.
According to Satin’s website Satin is “a soul-singing, high-stepping trio of ladies who remember the R&B sounds of the 20th century.”
The singers–Maria Jackson, Suzanne Palmer and Adrianne Felton–perform with together with a four-piece rhythm section. ”Each vocalist has her own unique style for their spectacular show,” the website says.
“Maria, the low contra-alto brings to life Mary Wells My Guy and gracefully moves through the Motown era reaching a peak at the 80’s/90’s as she sings songs made popular by Evelyn Champagne King and recreates the jazzy vocals of Anita Baker.
“Suzanne sings the great tunes of Martha Reeves and the Vandellas like Heatwave and Jimmy Mack as well as tunes by Donna Summer from the disco era.
“Adrianne brings it all home with soul stirring renditions of Aretha Franklin’s Respect and Ain’t No Way and Gladys Knight’s, Neither One of Us to name but a few.”
The women have entertained at many benefits including the National Cancer Society at the Waldorf Astoria in New York. They shared the stage with Gladys Knight for St. Jude’s Hospital and performed along side Mary Wells, Kool and the Gang, Earth Wind and Fire and many others.
They say the highlight of their career was performing at the Mid-Western Regional Ball of the 2009 Inauguration in Washington, D.C. at the request of President Barack Obama.
