Yve Evans is a unique musical treasure who continues to bring joy to her thousands of music fans in the Coachella Valley Area. Yve, first and foremost is a wonderful, loving and caring person. She is always the first one to offer help and aid to anyone in need without hesitation She also has an understated sense of humor that never gets old! But what really sets Yve Evans apart from her musical group is her magical voice. Listening to Yve brings back memories of the greatest singers in Jazz history starting with Ella and moving on to "Sassy" Sarah, Lina Horn, Nina Simone and Billie Holiday. She has performed with every major singing star in the Valley and if you mention her name to any of them, their response will be "great singer and wonderful person". Yve likes to laugh and she mixes humor into her performances to the delight of her audience. But don't be fooled by Yve's comedy. Yve Evans is a superb singer with a range that most singers would die for. I have been fortunate to be at enough of her performances to catch her when she is immersed into a medley and lyric and it's heaven to hear.
Yve is performing every Tuesday at Woody's Palm House in Palm Springs with the legendary, John Bolivar sitting in with her. John has been taking it easy recently due to some medical issues but he enjoys playing his Woodwinds and Flute especially with his long-time friend, Yve Evans. Be sure to call for reservations (760-230-0188) in advance because Yve always fills the house.
I found a "YouTube" that recorded Yve playing and singing one of her famous medleys in 2017 at the Monterey Jazz Festival that will give you some insights as to why she is so loved by her audiences. She is joined by two of her favorite playing partners, Bradley Austin Bobo on Bass and Larry Washington on Drums. Please enjoy the wonderful Yve Evans!
