Linda Peterson fans were treated to a special musical visit from her brother, Billy. Billy is a world-class Bassist who is constantly on the road playing with great Jazz groups both in the United States and in Europe. Valley favorite Linda Peterson is always a joy to listen to but when she is joined by a member of her large and talented family, she seems to sing and play at an even higher level. Linda is loved by many because of her wonderful piano playing and singing, her amazing selection of the greatest songs from the Great American Songbook and her contagious happy personality. It doesn't matter what mood you are in when you go to hear Linda perform, by the time you leave you will be humming a favorite tune and feeling at the top of your game. And it is not just her fans that love Linda so much, I have never heard anything but praise for Linda coming from all the best musicians in town. Quite a well-deserved tribute for a true professional and truly wonderful caring person.
Woody's Palm House is the successor of the original and wildly-popular Woody's Beer and Burgers that moved into the Palm House last year. It's a great venue for Jazz and also some of the best food in the Valley. They still serve the same great hamburgers and other menu items from the old Woody's but now they have added great additional items to the menu. You are sure to enjoy great food, hear great Jazz and have a fun-time. Woody's is usually always sold out, so reservations are a must. Call ahead at 760-230-0188.
Linda Peterson performs at many venues throughout the Valley and when not playing a gig usually can be found sitting in with other great musicians. She performs at Woody's every Thursday night from 6 to 10 and every Sunday for brunch between 10 and 2. On Friday she holds court with Bassist Tibor Lesko on the patio at Fix on El Paseo from 5 to 8. Great fun place for a quick drink and small plates. Reservations call 760-340-3040.
Saturdays you will find Linda at Backstreet Bistro in Palm Desert singing and playing for the lunch crowd. And Sunday evenings Linda performs at Chef George's from 6 to 9. Chef George is located at Country Club and Washington and has wonderful authentic Hungarian food at reasonable prices and great Jazz playing and singing from Linda. Reservations call 760-200-1768.
I located a YouTube video of Linda playing and singing a few great standards, enjoy!
