Born in Gainesville, Georgia (USA), Ingrid Arthur is one of the most powerful voices in contemporary music. She is not only a wonderful singer, she is truly one of the goddesses of soul.
Throughout her career, Ingrid has collaborated with many international stars such as Cissy Houston, Bette Midler, Tramaine Hawkins, Shirley Caesar and Dorothy Norwood. She has performed on stages in New York, Paris, London and Berlin and has received standing ovations everywhere for her professionalism, personable appearance and unique voice.Whenever the doors or curtains open for Ingrid, she captivates the audience with her unique performance. Even apart from her solo career or her successes with the Weather-Girls she proves again and again her musical extra class in the most different constellations and styles; from the "Golden Gospel Singers" over tours with James Last up to her current performance in the success musical "Velvet" in Hamburg, where she is the undisputed star of the show as a disco diva and enchants hundreds of guests every evening.Since 2002 Ingrid Arthur now lives in Berlin, but is at home on stages all over the world. That's where Ingrid shines the most and whoever has seen and heard her live once will want to experience this again and again. For tonight's concert Ingrid has invited her trio, which is the perfect combo for this special evening.
Helmut Bruger, one of the leading figures of the Berlin soul-jazz scene, sits at the keys; always a welcome guest in our club.
With Amy Zapf, one of the best electric bassists in town provides the harmonic foundation. The Bavarian-born multi-instrumentalist was classically trained on piano, organ and guitar, but has found her musical home in African-American music and today essentially plays blues, jazz, gospel, soul, rock and R'n'B. With professional ease she switches between piano, bass and guitar and can also occasionally be found on the organ, mandolin and banjo. She has been a fixture since 1998, playing with the who's who of the Berlin scene.
On drums we welcome the great Tracey Duncan, who not only as a drummer but also as a singer can look back on a long and successful career in the world of gospel.
