Heritage And History Dinner Show

Mildred Bailey Returns performed by CeCe Curtis Cook. Enjoy a night of history, laughter and good ole music that makes you feel right at home.

About CeCe:

CeCe Curtis pays tribute to fellow Schitsu'umsh (Coeur d'Alene) tribal member and jazz great Mildred Bailey also known as the Queen of Swing.

Along with her 3-piece band of talented musicians, CeCe Curtis performs some of her favorite Mildred Bailey tunes, ranging from Bailey's signature song "Rockin' Chair" to standards like "A Tisket A Tasket".

Mildred Bailey was a pioneer in the world of jazz in the 1930s and 40s, not only as a woman frontlining the hottest big band orchestras of her day, but also as a Native American who made a successful music career in a predominantly white male industry.

Both CeCe Curtis and Mildred Bailey hail from the Coeur d'Alene Indian Reservation in north Idaho.

"My goal when performing Mildred Bailey's songs is to bring awareness to her musical talent, to honor her and her contribution to the world.  It's also important to me that I strive to inspire and encourage fellow Native people, whether youth or elder, to pursue music and to dream big."  - CeCe Curtis
