“Diane Durrett and Gwen Hughes have been performing on the same stages for years. It’s only natural they’d finally come together for a fun and seriously funky show.”
“She’s good. She’s damn good.” Sting’s summation of his duet with singer songwriter producer Diane Durrett speaks for anyone who’s ever heard her perform. Diane serves on the Atlanta Board of the Recording Academy best known for the Grammys. As part of her service in 2017 she met with senators for the Grammys On the Hill event in D.C. Diane is a 2017 Global Peace Award winner. Winner of the 2015 ‘Peoples Choice Award’ by the Atlanta Blues Society, as a well as awarded the ‘Best Self-Produced Album’ representing Atlanta in the International Blues Challenge. “Soul Suga’ & Diane Durrett” received national & international attention charting in the Top 10 of the Roots Music Report Contemporary Blues chart. Durrett’s album was entered into the 58th Grammy Awards as Best Americana Album and Producer of the Year.
Gwen Hughes has released six albums on Fairfield Records, starting with “Torch Life” in the 1990s up until her newest album, “Dancing in the Moonlight,” recorded with her European band, Mono, featuring the greatest hit of their ten years of touring Eastern Europe. In 2016, Gwen signed with Zoho Music and her latest album, “Native Land,” was released to great critical acclaim from publications like JAZZWEEKLY (“this lady is convincing in every mood”) and JAZZTIMES (“Gwen does it again!”) and the classic rock blog, BLITZ MAGAZINE (“a remarkable collection”).
Along the way, she has crooned from Paris to Istanbul, collaborated on a film about Elvis impersonators (“We Three Kings”), and appeared as a character in a detective novel (Phillip DePoy’s, Dancing Made Easy, published by Dell.) Last year, Gwen performed in Prague at the invitation of Emil Viklicky, the Czech Republic’s national jazz legend. Gwen’s acting and music has been featured in Tyler Perry’s “House of Payne” to The Travel Channel’s “Faked Out.” As a songwriter, her tunes have been in films like “The Love Orchard” (2012), “Crazy Eyes” (2012) and on TV shows like “Man vs. Wild” (Discovery Channel) and “Big Ang”
TYPES OF TICKETS
There are no bad views of our stage at The Vista, even if you are standing! Often these are the best tickets if you want to be up close and personal with your favorite artist. Be aware that holders of Standing Room - Main Floor tickets have not purchased a seat and are not guaranteed a seat. This means that for sold out shows, holders of these tickets will likely be standing. If you want to assure the exclusivity and comfort of a reserved table at a show that is likely to sell out, we recommend purchasing a Reserved Table. However, at most shows, we only allow up to half the tables to be saved as reserved and the remaining will be available for General Admission ticket holders. Any reserved tables not purchased will be available for General Admission.
Don’t like standing or bumping elbows, or maybe you want to take the worry out of fighting traffic to be early to get a table? Exclusivity may be for you! Reserved Table tickets provide ticket holders the option to have a table saved for you. When the doors open to our venue, your reserved table will be waiting for you. Please note, Reserved Table tickets must be purchased in groups of 4 or 6, as there are 4 or 6 seats per table.
Food menu and full bar service available. Outside food and drink may not be brought into the Vista Room.
