Powerhouse singer/percussionist Shannon Gaye joins forces with Britt & Carly McKillip, uber-talented siblings with an undeniable vocal blend & style. Together, they present R.E.S.P.E.C.T. - a concert celebrating women of Soul, Rhythm & Blues.

Paying homage to trailblazing female artists, the show features tunes by classic icons like Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, and Etta James as well as contemporary artists such as Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys, and Adele.

The stellar six-piece band is comprised of some of Vancouver’s finest musicians, led by gifted pianist/producer Kristian Alexandrov. Kristian is the music director for Jens Lindemann’s “Brassfire” show, which was featured at Blue Frog in February 2017.

Kristian has co-written and produced three albums with Soul/R&B recording artist Shannon Gaye, described as “the slender singer with the big soulful voice”. Their most recent collaboration is Shannon’s latest CD Little Wonder, an acoustic gem with a modern spin - urban music with matter for the mind.

Britt and Carly McKillip were born and raised on the West coast - you may know them as the award-winning recording duo, One More Girl. Growing up in a musical family, Britt and Carly cut their teeth on all things entertainment: they’ve worked as actors since they were little, appearing in many prestigious film and television projects, and have shared the stage with artists such as Toby Keith, Darius Rucker and Keith Urban.
