Vocalist Peggy Weston brings her distinct style to a broad repertoire, extending from jazz to R&B, pop and Broadway. She is as comfortable performing in an intimate jazz club, as she is on a large concert stage.
Peggy sang in the Washington, D.C. area music scene, before departing for international stages at twenty-one.
She performed aboard cruise liners touring the Caribbean from Florida to South America, followed by notable London night spots. At twenty-two she returned to the Bahamas billed as the singing star in a London produced international show for a long, extended booking in Freeport, Grand Bahama Island.
Peggy Weston has performed in: clubs and concerts, television and films, on radio and for commercials, adding solo recordings in the Washington, D.C. area, the Bahamas, London, Brussels, Antwerp, and Holland, which solidified her reputation. She recorded the title song Wingless in the Netherlands for the film Slachtvee soundtrack, composed by Thijs van Leer.
The International Herald Tribune cited her engagement at The Brussels Jazz Club, which transpired into three highly successful seasons, plus two weeks at Antwerp's September Club.
She often shared the stage with notable international jazz artists, as: Clark Terry, Kai Winding, Bud Freeman, Johnny Griffin, Kenny Werner, Jack Van Poll, and Philip Catherine. Weston's vocals joined the after-hours jam sessions at the Brussels Jazz Club with Stan Getz's Quartet, Toots Thielemans and Lionel Hampton's Band.
Her television special Peggy Weston at The Brussels Jazz Club continues to be aired in Europe. She appeared in concert on the prestigious radio show Quatre & Quatre, broadcast 'live' throughout Europe. Her concerts shared the festival bill with Lionel Hampton's Band, Jose Feliciano, and Chet Baker.
In Washington, D.C., Peggy was the music opening act nightly for several months for political satirist Mark Russell at the Shoreham Hotel's Marquee Lounge.
Whether she is performing in clubs, or for special events - including a Presidential Inaugural Ball, or singing R&B before 20,000 for the City of Rockville's 4th of July Celebration, or leading her band with outstanding musician friends sharing the stage, Peggy Weston brings her energy and artistry.
Her desire to connect with her audiences through song is evident in her engaging style and soulfully dynamic performances. Peggy says, "When I am onstage, it's not about me, it's about the music, and where I hope it takes us."
