Jenifer French & Friends will perform hit songs including “Why Don’t You Do Right?,” “I Don’t Know Enough About You,” “Big Spender,” “Black Coffee,” “Manana,” “He’s a Tramp,” “Siamese Cat Song,” “Bella Note,” “Don’t Smoke in Bed,” “I’m a Woman,” “I Like Men,” “It’s a Good Day,” “Is That All There Is?,” “Fever,” and many more!

“French captures Lee’s compelling stillness in “Is That All There Is?…and with the iconic “Fever” French captures the sassy wit and sexiness with aplomb. ~ Cabaret Scenes Magazine

“The Peggy Lee Legacy” show was fabulous! Beautifully sung and paced, full of fun and laughs, amazing musicians, and a real treat of a walk down memory lane.” ~ Claudia from Chicago (Peggy Lee Fan)
