Only a few artists in history have been capable of defining an entire era in pop music. Ronnie Spector is one of those artists: the embodiment of the heart, soul, and passion of female rock 'n' roll in the 1960s. And to this day, no one has ever surpassed her powerful trademark vocals, her gutsy attitude, or her innocent but knowing sexuality. For these qualities and more, Ronnie Spector and her hit-making girl group, The Ronettes, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2007.
Beginning in 1963, Spector - as lead singer of The Ronettes - recorded a long string of classic pop hits, including "Walking in The Rain," "Do I Love You," "Baby I Love You," "The Best Part of Breaking Up," "I Can Hear Music," and the international No. 1 smash "Be My Baby." These records are among the best-loved and most-emulated recordings in the history of rock 'n' roll. In addition, her solo renditions of holiday classics like "Frosty the Snowman," "Sleigh Ride," "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," and "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" are an integral part of every Christmas season. Her versions of both "Sleigh Ride" and "Frosty the Snowman" have been staples on ASCAP's Top 20 Most-Played Christmas Songs list for numerous years.
In 1988, Spector introduced her signature show "Ronnie Spector's Christmas Party," and it has become a seasonal celebration, playing to audiences across the country for almost 25 years. Hot off the heels of her latest holiday release, Ronnie Spector's Best Christmas Ever, she brings the sensational show to the stage at B.B. King Blues Club for a remarkable 13th year. Mark your calendars now and find out why The New York Times has raved: "It's hard to think of a more appealing angel to welcome the season than Ms. Spector." - See more at: http://www.bbkingblues.com/bio.php?id=3045#sthash.7hNY8px8.dpuf
