Named 2013 Female Vocalist of the Year from the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs, Stacy Sullivan has appeared in venues around the world, from The Brasserie Zedel in London to The Cafe Carlyle in New York. Accompanied by Jon Weber, Stacy brings her award-winning show, “A Tribute to Miss Peggy Lee”, to Baja for her first-ever appearance in Mexico. The show is an interpretive musical exploration of Miss Lee’s extraordinary career as a singer, songwriter and actress, garnering international critical acclaim. Clive Davis, of The London Times wrote: “A commanding, willowy presence, Sullivan captures that rare combination of worldliness and vulnerability.” And from The Times Square Chronicles:“It only happens sometimes. A performer who can captivate an audience on many levels: voice, phrasing, acting, persona, sensuality, physical beauty, and also Swing. She has that extra wisp in her singing that leaves you breathless and everything she does musically flows naturally. For me, a performance is memorable when its glow lasts the entire ride home. This one had me smiling the next morning.”
Prior to the concert, an auction will take place featuring original art by some of Baja’s best known artists. Also being presented at auction will be unique, rare tequilas from a special private collection. Additionally, there will be Peggy Lee memorabilia as well as collector items donated by the Frank Sinatra Estate.

Also in attendance will be prominent entertainment attorney, Michael Pearlstein, singer/songwriter Richard Addrisi (“Never My Love”, among other classics) coming from Buenos Aries, Peggy Lee's 3 Grandchildren, David, Holly & Michael Foster and the Estates of Margaret Whiting, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole and of course, the Peggy Lee Estate.
