Monica Cantrell Originally from Indianapolis, Monica Cantrell recently returned to city stages after a hiatus which included performing in Michigan and California. A versatile soprano, she has performed classically with symphony orchestras across the U.S. and Canada, as well as in Sophisticated Lady, Symphony and Swing (a musical tribute to Duke Ellington). Cantrell drew glowing praise from Jay Harvey Upstage for her spring 2019 Lady Day Fonseca Theater performance as having a "marvelous grasp of Billie Holiday” and “... authentic touches — delicate ornamentation, perfect diction and pitch sense...” The show run was held over and international opera star Angela Brown urged people to it, saying, “run don’t walk, to see Monica Cantrell embody the character of Billie Holiday...a must see.” IndyFringe audiences enjoyed her at the 2019 IndyFringe Festival in "An Evening of Billie Holiday" and at the holidays with special guest Everett Greene in 'Classic Christmas.”
Wendy Reed is an Indianapolis native who has enjoyed performing for audiences for over 40 years. She is a regular jazz vocalist at venues such as The Jazz Kitchen, Chatterbox Jazz Club and Ruth’s Chris. Her background in musical theater has helped make her the consummate entertainer! She headlines her own dance band, The Wendy Reed Band, and has been a featured vocalist on the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Show. She loves doing comedic parody music, as laughter is her passion!
