Unforgettable Songs & Stories from The Great American Songbook. Stardust to Moonglow, Gershwin to Nat King Cole, Jodi tours the country enchanting audiences with her velvet voice. In Unforgettable, Jodi’s warm and engaging performance takes you on a journey through The Great American Songbook weaving elegant arrangements with sentimental stories of the music, composers, and cherished musicians from this timeless era of American music. This show, designed with something for everyone, is certain to be a favorite.
Jodi is more than a singer and pianist. She is a storyteller, a theme weaver, a scrapbook of our lives presented in song. Her performances invite the audience on a sentimental journey of melodies and lyrics that will leave them smiling and bring a tear to their eyes.
If you ask her mother when Jodi first began to sing, she will look at you with a very sincere face and ask, “When hasn’t she?” Truly from birth, Jodi has been warming people’s hearts with pure and beautiful vocal tones. At the age of five, she started piano lessons and could read sheet music before she could read English. She continued her musical studies at Judson University and Northern Illinois University and went on to form the award-winning Jodi Beach Trio, with whom she has recorded six albums and toured throughout the country.
“Timeless” best describes an evening with Jodi Beach. Music that is as alive today as it was when first created, is enjoyed by audiences young and old, all who have been touched by these essential elements of life.
Though Jodi can bang out notes with the best of them she has never been one to “trade solos and go home.” She can always be heard playing well thought out and rehearsed arrangements that pull at your heartstrings one minute, have you dancing the next, and always treat you to the thing she loves to do the most…SING!
