Jill Watkins is well known in Colorado for her sassiness and powerful voice. Her versatility is experienced through her various projects; from her original blues project, the "Jill Watkins Band", to featured artist with jump-and-swing band "George Whitesell and his All-Stars Featuring Jill Watkins," to vocalist with the New-Orleans-themed band, "Jockamo," to collaborator with the all-women’s show "HERmonious," and, singing with the internationally renowned (cuz she told her friend in Canada) funk and jazz band "FUNK KNUF"! Jill has shared the stage with many international artists and performed in festivals all across the southwest. She continues to stretch her wings and expand her repertoire.
Jill is also honored to sing The National Anthem and God Bless America for special events.
I had a wonderful time at Saturday’s “Blues on the Mesa” in Colorado Springs (10-2-2021)! To share the stage with Jessica Rogalski, Peaches Embry, Paul Rogalski (bass), Bob Murnahan (guitar), Anneke Toomey (keys), and Colin Brown (drums) was such an honor and a joyful experience!! Mojomama is a multiple award-winning band and it was a real pleasure to have them for our Ladies Sing the Blues set!
Amy and George Whitesell, thank you for doing such an AMAZING job coordinating and producing this festival. I heard from many people how impressed they were with everything! Such a great line-up and vendors and staff. Well done.
I received many long, hard, and meaningful hugs yesterday, and I am a little misty thinking about it. My faith in humanity is restored.
Thank you, Scott Fizke, for this footage. It was so good to see you!
