Nov-22-17 09:00 PM The Kennedy Administration Some lead vocalists are so captivating, you wonder who's more dazzled when they sing: the adoring fans, or the bandmates who count themselves as blessed as the crowd to be in the presence of such an engaging talent. Watch any live performance by theKennedy Administration, with this quartet's singular namesake at the microphone, and you'll see right away that the rapt audience for Kennedy includes the very skilled, well-traveled players on stage. Kennedy's joy is contagious.It's a testament to her abilities as a musician, and her irresistible presence, that Ondrej Pivec on keyboards, Dmitry Gorodetsky on bass and Nathaniel Townsley on drums were drawn to her and motivated to also help bring the original compositions of this emerging young singer-songwriter to life. Mind you, these guys do not impress easily. Kennedy's cabinet of three has more high-level, executive experience in jazz, r&b, hip-hop and pop than you'll encounter in bands boasting double the number of personnel or claiming twice as many years in music. With credits ranging from Stevie Wonder to Lauryn Hill, and a roster of acclaimed "musician's musicians" in between, the Kennedy Administration's instrumental trio has seen, heard and played a lot. Motor City native Kennedy, who made her way to New York, has carved out her own formidable body of work, thanks to a vocal style that is inflected with great influences — think Ella Fitzgerald, Sade, Anita Baker, even a dash of Luther Vandross — but has its own timbre and particular mix of playfulness and seductive poise.In a few short years since coming east, in one of the world's most competitive entertainment capitals, Kennedy has amassed gigs and collaborations with Christina Aguilera, Kenny Lattimore, Monifah and Cheryl Pepsi-Riley, to name a few. Forging a sound and identity for itself, the Kennedy Administration is creating sensory, soulful modern jazz with elements of r&b, hip-hop and pop judiciously applied. Led by an inspirational singer — who takes her role seriously and carries it with graceful good humor — this particular Kennedy Administration is ushering in a brand new "Great Society" of sweet music.
