Brad McNett Sings Next Sesi Motors 5:01 Jazz Show

Jason Thomas Crocker
Brad McNett
Vocalist Brad McNett

As WEMU continues our yearlong celebration of 40 years of jazz, it is great to invite former staff members to join the party this Friday.  

If you have been listening to WEMU for a while, you will remember Brad McNett’s great taste in tunes when he substituted for Jessica Webster or hosted his own early morning 89.1 Jazz show.  Brad knew the right songs to play because he came to radio from jazz performance.  He began his career as a crooner and swing singer while in high school.  Today, Brad has carved out a niche as an in-demand jazz singer at fine Detroit establishments such as The London Chop House and Cliff Bell’s and at The Hollywood Casino in Toledo.  We were thrilled to learn that he could headline our next free Sesi Motors 5:01 Jazz Show on November 3rd and reunite with many WEMU friends.    



You will love Brad’s choice of standards, swing songs and bluesy ballads.  Brad’s ace band includes pianist Tyler Driskill, bassist Jordan Schug and drummer Rob Avsharian.  Join Brad, the band and the WEMU crew for 2 sets of great jazz starting at 5 PM sharp at Rush Street Nightclub, 314 South Main Street in Ann Arbor.  5:01 Jazz is presented with support from Sesi Motors in memory of Dr. Jan Winkelman, WEMU’s first major donor and community champion.

Linda Yohn simply cannot remember a day in her life that was not filled with music. Her early life was full of changes as the daughter of a well-respected cancer research scientist who moved his family about, but one thing was constant: the love of music instilled by her mother. So, when it seemed life was too hard to bear, young Linda would listen to her radio, play her guitar, dance her heart out and sing at the top of her lungs. So, it isn’t so strange that “older” Linda still does all those things!
