Online Event: Queer Women in Music
Sunday, August 30, 2020 – 3:00PM to 7:00PM EST
The schedule in order of appearance:
3pm- Nicole and Denise Entertainment -Nicole and Denise are the NJ Shore’s most sought after duo. They have been playing the circuit for over 20 years and are well known for their full band sound. Since they are NOT an acoustic duo, they are often hired in lieu of a 12 piece band to help pack a dance floor at a venue or a private event with their upbeat music. Nicole works hard behind the scenes laying down every track you hear by ear. Music is never downloaded! N&D play keyboards, guitars, and harmonicas while they rock each song with killer vocals & harmonies covering just about every genre of music.

4pm- Ruth Nielsen- is a music graduate from Leeds College of Music, UK where she studied jazz 2005-2008. Until then she was influenced by other styles, namely country, pop/rock, acoustic, and gospel. Studying jazz opened up so many new paths and ways to explore music. Ruth learned how to improvise and this forms her approach to music. Her song choices have a clear personal connection; and be it covers or originals, she always puts her own stamp on songs.
Ruth has performed as a piano vocalist since summer 2017 when she also came out in the queer community. She released her Unicorn EP spring 2020 which talks about her experiences and she is now working on her first album.
Ruth is a delicate, soulful and sweet Danish-British singer who will take you on a piano journey with improvised songs that range from jazz, R&B classics, and everything in between.
5pm- Off White Betties- Jean Stewart and her partner Lisa Robertson are currently living in the Orlando, FL area.
Originally from New Jersey and Virginia respectively, they began playing together in the ’90s in Atlanta GA. They performed together with various lineups of other musicians throughout the Southeast. They moved to Florida about 5 years ago and established themselves as a Duo. Before this pandemic, they were performing at various resorts, restaurants, and bars throughout Central Florida.
Off White, Betties are a fun acoustic duo who plays popular cover songs from the past 6 decades. Keeping the audience guessing, they weave through multiple genres throughout each show. With over 20 years of experience, you can expect tight harmonies and engaging performances.
6pm-Stephanie Chin- She is an NJ and PA favorite with regular appearances at New Hope PrideFest and Women’s Weekend. With hints of everything from Norah to Natalie, she warms your soul with her soulful and healing tone. Tap into more of her positive vibes at www.stephaniecmusic.com
