Robbie Bartlett has been performing in Louisville area nightclubs since 1982. With her talent and a strong sense of musical direction, it is electric and engaging. Her warm smoky alto voice is heard regularly at popular clubs. She started singing at age four and developed a strong foundation in R&B and jazz. Styles include «Respect» by Aretha Franklin, «Good Morning Heartache» by Billie Holiday, «Give Me One Reason» by Tracy Chapman, and «At Last.» by Etta James. When the Louisville Palace was renovated, Robbie was called to perform at Stagedoor Johnnie's, the adjoining nightclub. When the Palace booked Frank Sinatra, Tom Jones, Sheryl Crow, The Righteous Brothers and many others, Robbie and her band opened their shows. David Crosby and Graham Nash specifically asked for her to perform before and after their concert.
