|Musical activities in Germany
Since the American jazz, blues and gospel singer Melva Houston made her debut
in Germany in 1996, she has been a regular guest in jazz clubs and at jazz festivals
Meanwhile Melva Houston is not anymore known only by insiders on the Jazz and Gospel scene in Germany. More and more concerts in neighbour countries like Switzerland, the Netherlands and Spain show Melva's increasing crowd of followers.
No wonder, since a combination of a jazz and blues voice of her capacity combined
with brilliant entertainment, complemented by a band consisting of high-class
jazz musicians turn Melva Houston's concerts into an extraordinary live event.
Melva Houston will be presenting the following programs:
Melva Houston & Band jazz, blues
Church gospel concerts
"The Beauty & the Bass" vocal / double bass duo
In her concerts, Melva Houston is accompanied by excellent jazz musicians. Her
band members and guests included among others Martin Schrack, Daniel Messina,
Jochen Feucht, Andy Witte, Uwe Schenk.
