Lady O & The Omen strive to promote a sense of well being at their shows. With themes that touch upon the inner journey, our shared humanity, and sometimes just fruit. They may get you dancing!

Their music features Lady O’s originals, unique standards and new interpretations of old folk melodies. The band cooks one fat groovy pocket while fusing jazz, funk, world music and pop. Improvisation plays a key role….
