Vocalist CeCe Gable and keyboardist Corky Bennett perform at Sierra Place Senior Living, 1111 West College Parkway.
CeCe draws the listener into her captivating world of song with an incredible depth of emotion. She swings with rhythmic passion and also has the ability to caress a ballad with effortless interpretation. Influenced by many of the women and men of jazz, she offers her own voice on jazz standards and the American Songbook. She shines on any stage whether she is accompanied by a solo pianist, a trio or an entire orchestra… you’ll find you cannot get enough of this jazz experience.
Corky is a Northern Nevada legend who started performing in Seattle at the age of 12 on accordion with the “Buckaroos,” a local country/rock band, winning amateur contests by the dozens. He left in 1960 to pursue a musical career that has taken him to the great venues of the United States, Canada, and the Orient. He has appeared on many network television shows and has served as musical director for many “name acts,” including superstar accordionist, Dick Contino.
Corky’s musical talents on the keys are top notch. Whether he’s playing piano or accordion, he consistently wows his audiences with technical prowess, spontaneity and musician ship! He also knocks audiences out with his vocal renditions of songs ranging from hip standards to country and pop.
Corky possesses a unique sense of humor that makes him a delight on stage. His comedy skills were honed as the comedic half of a musical/comedy team “Raymond & Bennett,” and later on with his own Las Vegas style act. His bizarre, over the top humor leaves crowds roaring. He is totally unpredictable and will do whatever it takes to make his audiences have a good time.
