Singing the Blues this week was Indianapolis native Deb Mullins for Bebop, Boogie and Blues at The Cabaret at The Columbia Club, 121 Monument Circle.
Mullins’ connection with the audience is enhanced by her ability to create a balance of upbeat bebop and boogie tunes with the slowed-down blues. Creating an intimate mood, the local songstress brought the audience to its feet more than once in admiration of her powerful vocals.
Talented accompanists included Troye Kinnett, Steve Dokken, Steve Hanna and Sandy Williams, each with an outstanding individual career.
Bottom Line: Whether drawing you close with the vulnerable Good Morning, Heartache, or belting out powerful ballads, such as Feels Like Home, Mullins brings everyone along for an emotional ride.
