SAMARA JOY “A JOYFUL HOLIDAY”
FEATURING THE MCLENDON FAMILY
DECEMBER 12, 2023
Great news for jazz fans. Samara Joy, the reigning Grammy® Award winner of Best New Artist and featured performer on The Jazz Cruise ’23 and Botti at Sea ’24, will be touring this holiday season presenting a very special show, “A Joyful Holiday, featuring the McLendon Family”.
Music has always been a guiding light within the young Bronx native’s lineage, and this holiday show features vocals by multiple generations of her tight-knit family. Samara will be performing alongside her father Antonio McLendon, a gifted bassist and vocalist who toured with the renowned Andrae Crouch, Samara’s uncle Laurone McLendon, and her cousins Tiera Lovell Rowe and Alana Alexander.
The final schedule for the shows has not been completed, but Jazz Cruises and Jazz St. Louis has confirmed a date, December 12, 2023, for a show at The Factory in St. Louis (Chesterfield). Tickets start at $40.
Once the full schedule is completed, we will share that information with you as well. If we do not see you at the St. Louis show, we hope that you will catch one of the other dates and performances.
What a great holiday treat!
