Flat Five- Blues and spoken word with Toscha Comeaux and Woody Woods

Performers include:
Toscha Comeaux- Vocalist
Born in Hartford, Connecticut, Toscha has performed with the Connecticut Opera, Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, a number of Disney Variety Shows and was a featured singer in the Cirque Du Soleil “Viva Elvis" from 2009-2012. She has shared the stage with such greats as Nat Adderly, Lou Rawls, Ray Charles and Diana Ross. Although she has the ability to sing all styles of music, her main desire is to perform in the jazz genre. Her influences include Sarah Vaughan, Stevie Wonder and Roberta Flack.

Woody Woods - Composer/Arranger/Pianist - Jazz, Gospel, R&B and Orchestral. Born and raised in the inner city of Los Angeles, Woody is a self-taught composer, conductor, lyricist and pianist. Blessed with the opportunity to conduct Parade of the Chariots, from the movie Ben-Hur, during his final year in junior high school, Woods became hooked on directing bands, choirs and orchestras. He also had one of his original arrangements performed by the school jazz band that year. Thus, the fire was lit, and there was no putting it out.

Woods was originally a woodwind player specializing in tenor sax, flute and clarinet. He began to take the piano seriously when the pianist in his high school jazz ensemble (The Jazz Executives) joined another band. Because the band could not play without a pianist, Woods started playing the piano and never did get back to any of his woodwinds.

Today, Woody has turned his time and talent toward sharing thoughts and feelings with the world in the form of prose and poetry. In addition, he is directing and producing several video projects that feature his music and poetry.
