Susannahh Martin joins forces with Vincent Z to create jazz and blues as Flor de Bee, on stage at the Marketplace Cafe in the Village Oak Creek on Saturday night.

Saturday, Feb. 25, 6:30-9:30 p.m., at the Marketplace Café Nightspot, Flor de Bee will delight audiences with the fiery and whimsical blend of its two strong lead players, Vincent Z (on vocals and guitar) and Susannah Martin (vocals and percussion).

The band swings with jazz and blues while spicing it up - sometimes hot, sometimes breezy - with rhythmic Latin and world music in up to six different languages. Featuring a classic repertoire of international favorites, from "La Vie en Rose' and 'Volare' to 'Stray Cat Strut'. Susannah and Vincent top their performance off with smooth and surprising harmonies, including dual scat-singing (vocal improvisation) of multi-dimensions.

Vocalist Susannah Martin entered the Arizona music scene several years ago and immediately established herself as one the area's most in-demand singers. Her formal arts education started with voice and music training at the age of 10 at the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts and culminated in a music degree from Willamette University in Oregon. Susannah has performed in concerts, festivals, clubs and cruise ships across the United States. and has released a debut album entitled "Tropico Sur." Susannah's fluid, sultry voice is colored with jazz and R&B, along with a spicy international flair ignited by her multi-lingual singing in Latin styles. Her ability to improvise lifts her performance to further enticing heights. Susannah also lives and performs in San Diego and coaches contemporary a cappella choir, vocal workshops and individual voice lessons in Arizona and southern California.

Vincent Z is a well-traveled French "saltimbanque" (France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Morocco, Canada, Mexico, The United States and Venezuela), singing and playing traditional melodies and rhythms from around the world. Accomplished in many styles (Samba, Beguine, Rumba, Gypsy Swing, Soukous, and more), Vincent Z performs solo as well as with the Jazz Bedouins, Zigaboom, and the Z Mango Blues! He sings songs in English, French, French Creole Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Hebrew and Russian.

Marketplace Cafe is located at 6640 Highway 179 (in the Outlet Mall at Jack's Canyon Road) in the Village of Oak Creek (928) 284-5478.
