In Memoriam of Ms Gladys Etta Blackshear Duren


A major ingredient of the success of On Kee Jazz Band in the DMV was the impeccable vocals of Ms Etta Duren. She commanded the audience with her unique style and powerful voice. Unfortunately, we lost Ms Duren this past year. Her spirit and contributions to On Kee will stay with us forever.
