What to Expect
“With Monica Heuser singing the cat-growl role of Joplin…this ‘Janis’ throbs and roars…the show is a searing shot of energy. It captures that elusive, almost feral liberation embodied by the real Joplin.”
“The one who deservedly gets the most attention is Heuser, who sings and moves and howls like the wind. She captures Joplin’s folk-rock wildness and innocence, seeming to float ethereally, becoming the music itself as she delivers numbers such as Piece of My Heart and Ball and Chain.” – Rohan Preston, Star Tribune (Minneapolis, MN)
“…in her voice, carriage and personality she beautifully translates the singer’s idiosyncratic style. There’s a homey twang when she speaks…when she sings, her fluid voice cries, laughs, hiccups, snarls, barks, begs, mourns and scolds. On ‘Walkin’ After Midnight’, she articulates complex phrasing rhythms, caressing each consonant and vowel. On ‘I Fall To Pieces’ and ‘Crazy’, her breath control perfectly handles Cline’s signature vocal scoop.” – Star Tribune (Minneapolis, MN)
“…superlative singer Monica Heuser…Heuser’s performance shines brightly…Heuser’s voice is rich and strong. Moreover, she seems to have an intuitive feel for the lyrics and Cline’s persona.”
“The second act serves to showcase Heuser at her best, which is often sensational. She sings with affection, distinctive style, and winning authenticity…the extraordinary Heuser.” - The Republican (Springfield, Mass.)
A microphone stand and sound system is needed, but I do travel with my own microphone (Shure 55 "crooner" style mic).
I have my own classic "crooner-style" microphone: a Shure 55!
