The Janet Planet Jazz Trio will take the stage at Peg Egan Performing Arts Center (PAC) on June 25 at 7 pm in Egg Harbor.
Janet Planet has been paying her dues and studying the craft of singing for more than two decades, steadily building a career that began with a high school talent show performance. Her 1985 release, Sweet Thunder, brought Planet to the attention of Steve Allen who wrote, “There are so many dumb and inarticulate singers today. It’s a pleasure to hear someone who knows what singing is all about.”
Planet frequently shares with students and others her knowledge of vocal technique, jazz history, performance careers, and the music business, bringing to this experience her perspectives as a woman and artist. A busy concert schedule has taken her to performing arts centers, opera houses, colleges, universities, jazz festivals and jazz clubs across the USA and internationally.
As the past century closed and a new one began, music critics have noted her arrival as an accomplished artist. A productive recording artist herself, Planet has 23 recordings in her discography to date.
