San Ramon: TINA: A Tribute to the Queen of Rock & Roll

March 2 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

<h1 class="tribe-events-single-event-title">San Ramon: TINA: A Tribute to the Queen of Rock & Roll</h1>

Cookie Watkins brings more than a celebrity impersonation to her performance. An international touring Tribute Artist, Music has been Cookie’s mainstay since Duke Ellington brought her onstage to warble out a few tunes at the ripe age of fourteen. The Duke gave Cookie a coming-out party at the Rainbow Room when she turned eighteen. She even warranted a special mention in his book “Music Is My Mistress.”

Known to Underground music fans as “Iron Throat”, Cookie admits to being highly influenced by R&B legends like Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, Bobby Womack and the legend she so enthusiastically tributes, Tina Turner.

No stranger to Broadway, Cookie also performed in hit stage musicals like “Guys & Dolls,’ “Sweet Charity,” and “Hair” before touring with the original cast of “Beehive” and Marie Wilson.
