Margie Nelson who is no stranger to our High Life Jazz Series told me about Sybil and said A Sybil Gage concert is always pure fun! I love her sassy and spunky personality, and huge smile! Wearing sparkly dresses and trailing her signature feather boas behind her, she’s a magnetic presence on stage. She amazes with her cool song choices and her band is always top notch! I’m proud to be her friend and admirer! I immediately listened to her music and I was hooked as I am sure our patrons will be too!!
