TGIF Jazz June 29: Sue Palmer

by The Editors on June 29, 2007

Sue-Redhat-PhotoSue Palmer has been called “San Diego’s Queen of Boogie Woogie.” And this Friday (June 29) she’ll be playing Stagecoach Park with her Motel Swing Orchestra as part of the Carlsbad TGIF Jazz in the Parks concert series.

Palmer is probably most famous for being the musical partner of blues diva Candye Kane who she travelled the world with as Sue “Beehive” Palmer with Candye Kane and the Swingin’ Armadillos.

Sue is a featured artist on all four of Kane’s CDs under the Antones and Sire labels. Sue’s instrumental composition “Beehive” was featured on Kane’s “Diva La Grande” CD, and Sue and Candye co-wrote the title tune on Kane’s CD “Swango.” “Swango” is also featured in the documentary “The Girl Next Door,” a biography of porn star Stacy Valentine produced by National Public Radio’s Christine Fugat in 2000.

No, we’re not missing this one.
