New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Phoebe Legere Official Website) Phoebe Legere, musician, singer, painter, and songwriter of college radio hit "Marilyn Monroe", will be appearing at Chan's, April 16th, 267 Main St. Woonsocket, RI with her band The Phoebe Legere Quintet featuring R.I. legend, Sir George Leonard.

PHOEBE LEGERE's new Ooh La La Coq Tail CD pays tribute to her French-Canadian ancestry; Ooh La La Coq Tail is a sublime 16 - song collection that captures the alluring spirit of musette and gypsy jazz with songs sung in French and English. Phoebe Legere plays piano and accordion. Legere weaves a "magical, mystical, sensual" spell with a "beautiful voice that will take your breath away" - NY Post

Ooh La La Coq Tail was recorded at Bennett Studios by Tony's son, Dae. The album features Phoebe Legere's originals: "Hot Sicilian Pizza Boy," "Crazy White Trash," "Good Stiff Cocktail!" and the Sir George Leonard song, "I Love Myself When I'm with You."

Legere's tour of Rhode Island also includes:

Rhode Show and the Buddy Cianci show on Thursday, April 14.

April 18th: Phoebe will be heard singing the lead soprano role in Will Todd's "Mass in Blue" at Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center. She will sing the blues in Latin, backed up by orchestra and three choirs.

April 19th: The Phoebe Legere Quintet will celebrate the release of Phoebe's new CD Ooh La La Coq Tail at Iridium, 51st and Broadway.

ImanLabedi of RockNYC describes Phoebe Legere as "a master writer of startlingly beautiful, heroic" songs.

Legere "plays the piano with enormous authority in a style that encompasses Chopin, blues, ragtime, bebop and beyond, and she brings to her vocal delivery a four and a half octave range, and an extraordinary palette of tonal color and meticulous phrasing." - NY Times

"Legere is an expressive and versatile singer whose voice ranges from a dark and earthy alto to a gorgeous dazzling high soprano.... she combines intelligent lyrics and a fusion of French musette, Cajun, pop, rock and jazz into a stew she calls, "roots alternative." - Washington Post
