MzVAL & KEVIN O’NEAL BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION


MzVAL & Kevin O’Neal are longtime associates. We are celebrating Kevin’s
Birthday with excellent music and a great performance, featuring MzVal in her
debut to Catalina on Sunset Jazz Club. Please come celebrate with us!
Valerie “MzVal” Geason - Bio
It all started with Jazz music for Valerie. She began singing at the age of 19.
Valerie sang in front of her first audience trying to win scholarship money for
college. From that point on she was bitten by the performance bug. Being
introduced to jazz first, Valerie developed her talent by listening to such artists as
Sarah Vaughn, Dinah Washington, Nancy Wilson and Nina Simone.
Valerie has performed in various arenas with a wide array of artists such as Los
Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs performing the National Anthem, opening
for Jazz Greats Dizzy Gillespie and Mel Torme and Comedian Redd Foxx in Las
Vegas. Valerie also traveled internationally with Ray Charles as one of his
Raelettes.
Valerie’s career has been extensive and fulfilling.
Musical Theatre credits include: Ain’t Misbehavin, Chicago(Mama Morton) and
Newsies (Medda Larkin) just to name a few.
This native Texas girl has come a long way since moving to California after
completing her college education in San Antonio Texas.

    Kevin O'NEAL

    Jazz

    Kevin O'Neal is a Grammy winning bassist. He is a brilliant writer, arranger, director and composer known nationally and internationally for his innovation with improvisational based music. He has lent his talents to diverse artists including Outkast, Tracy Chapman, The Busboys, Kevin Toney, Crystal Lewis, Nnenna Freelon, Brian Setzer, Anointed, Otis Day, Freestyle Fellowship, Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr. and many others.

    Mr. O'Neal got his start in music with his brother, when they started The BusBoys. The group took their rhythm and blues roots and fused them into a multidimensional rock and roll sound. Their work has been released on four major label albums, including the multi-platinum soundtrack for Ghostbusters which earned a Grammy nomination. The group toured extensively, either headlining or co-headlining with many top acts, including Linda Ronstadt, Brian Setzer and The Stray Cats, ZZ Top and Eddie Murphy.
