THE SHOWS

'Aretha & Me'

Following two sell-out years of her show “Billie & Me”,  Patti returns with her brand new one-woman show “Aretha and Me”. In this fascinating show, Patti compares and contrasts her life with that of the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, whose celebrated career included 17 Top 10 singles and 20 No.1 R&B hits during her 5 decades of recording.
Patti will be singing some of her favourite Aretha Franklin numbers including Respect, Say A Little Prayer, Chain of Fools and Think and many more, with some of her own favourites which are special to her.

'Billie & Me' UK Tour

Patti toured with her wonderful, moving one-woman show 'Billie and Me,' in which she discussed the parallels of her life and career with that of the great singer Billie Holiday. Holiday's life, songs and cause of death, made a strong impact on modern day performers like Patti and it was many of Holiday's songs and performances that increased Patti's love of jazz music. In 'Billie & Me', Patti performs some of her favourite songs of Holiday's such as That Ole Devil Called Love, Nice Work If You Can Get It, Strange Fruit, God Bless the Child and many more.

CHRISTMAS WITH Patti Boulaye

19th - THE PHEASANTRY - CHELSEA, LONDON

 

Having been wowed by Patti Boulaye in last year’s production of 'Bille and Me', I couldn’t wait to see her new one woman show, ‘Aretha & Me’.
Tonight did not disappoint. Patti is a consummate story teller, with a wicked sense of humour, who by the end of the show had every member of the audience on their feet, dancing and singing.
