Coolsville is an homage to the music of Rickie Lee Jones, brought to you by a group of expert and seasoned professional musicians who share a love of Rickie's extraordinary works and music. Over the course of a career that spans five decades, Jones has recorded in various musical styles including rock, R&B, blues, pop, soul and jazz. She is a two-time Grammy Award winner and her first two Albums "Rickie Lee Jones" and "Pirates" have sold millions worldwide. Best known for her hit single "Chuck E's in love", Rickie's songs have the power to transport you to a place where beatnik prose, jazz and blues meld with deserts, cities, loves lost and great canyons. Why Coolsville? Because this 'cool and inspired' live show challenges the old, tired concept of tribute and kicks it into touch: Call it what you want but it's definitely COOLSVILLE - 'let's hope it isn't contagious'.

lyrics borrowed from Chuck E's In Love
