It’s a jam session, it’s a dance party, it’s a live show — and it always features the hottest talent on the scene!! Sittin’ In is the free, monthly jam session at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. Blending edgy horns, choice vinyl, cutting edge MC’s and soaring vocalists, each session is unique, led by a stellar lineup of guest hosts and their band of choice.
Celisse Henderson is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, performer and spoken word artist. Her deep and varied career has seen her on stage, from the recent revival of Godspell at Circle in the Square Theater to Bridget Everett’s Rock Bottom at Joe’s Pub at The Public; on television, in PBS’s The Electric Company, 30 Rock, Rescue Me and more; and in concert, at venues ranging from the Beacon Theater, supporting Mariah Carey, to MGM Grand Garden Arena, with PHISH to singing with Melissa Etheridge at the Apollo Theater. But it’s her prodigious talents as a singer-songwriter and musician that have defined Celisse the most as an artist. Her original music, powered by her soulful voice, is hard-rocking and blues-tinged with infectious hooks that stay with you.
