- One, was awarded four posthumous Grammy’s
- One, had nine husbands!

Bonnie Lee Galea and band pay tribute to the lives and music of Three Musical Giants of the Early 20th Century through stories, images & song, resurrecting superb masterpieces like Ain’t Misbehavin’, Makin’ Whoopee!, St. Louis Blues & audience sing-along song, Send Me to The ‘lectric Chair!

This show encapsulates the essence of these three lady’s gifts to the world’s music culture throughout the decades, bringing to the stage brilliant masterpieces of song, presented by one of SA’s own Quartets. Each song is delivered with emotion embellished with background images and intermittent stories & quotes from each of their lives. All three singers performed and recorded with the biggest bands and orchestras of the day including Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton & Quincy Jones leaving us with unforgettable songs.
