Paula Lammers has emerged as a significant talent in the MN jazz community over the past several years. Her sound has been described by one listener as, "delectable… The purity & the flawless pitch give me goose bumps! I find the same color quality, the simplicity & perfection in her presentation that I heard for many years in Rosemary Clooney."
In 2005 Lammers released her first CD entitled, "A Blanket of Blue" which received impressive reviews from national sources. It was selected for the Top 10 List for 2005 by Live 365, an internet radio station based out of NY. CD's will be available for purchase at Friday's event. Karl Stober from Jazz Review sums it up: "…one can foresee an intoxicating adventure ahead in the industry for Ms. Lammers…this young sound has the potential to really step out in front of the pack in the independent world. The audience will want to follow her path as she grows".
Chris Holland-Mehlhaff, owner said, "We're thrilled share such talented musicians with our hotel guests & the community. Our hotel guests appreciate the added value & enriched experience they receive via music. "The Lodge is not just a place to stay, it's a place for an experience…"
