Jazz singer Ed Reed will alternate sets with Kim Nalley at the aquarium's Marine Mammal exhibit.


Known for her sublime performances, limitless capacity to swing and mischievous sparkle, you can count on Nalley to entertain and enthrall an audience as she uses her compelling three-and-a-half octave voice to ignite everything from blues and ballads to up-tempo cookers.
She has performed at many of the most prestigious jazz festivals both nationally and internationally, including Monterey Jazz Festival, Umbria Jazz Festival and The Lincoln Center.
She has produced several significant historical/tribute concerts and CDs, including her award-winning "Ladies Sing the Blues" and "She Put a Spell on Me: Tribute to Nina Simone," which was short-listed for a Grammy.
