About Cristina Perez
New Orleans native Cristina Perez fronts her band with a combination of sassy vocal power and strong jazz sensibilities. Whether singing, acting, dancing, composing, or starting a movement, she is a great addition to the entertainment scene. Her latest album, The Sweetest Thing, showcases her impressive versatility as a musician and range as a composer. Featuring 10 original songs, the album spans many genres as it moves fluidly through decades of varying musical traditions. Hints of Ella Fitzgerald, Diana Krall and Norah Jones can be detected throughout.
In addition to producing two of her own albums, Perez has appeared on numerous artists’ recordings including Richard Scott’s Jambalaya Town, the New Orleans Moonshiners’ award-winning Frenchmen St. Parade, and Adam Rosado’s soon-to-be-released Big Band album.
Cristina is a regular at BB’s Stage Door Canteen, where she has the opportunity to showcase her broad vocal range during various productions. She is best known for her leading role in the National World War II Museum’s award winning tribute Jump, Jive and Wail! The Music of Louis Prima.
