“The Janes, a heavily sequined, glorious-voiced singing trio, performed a comic medley on the theme of Women in Transition that began with “Stand by Your Man” and ended with “You Don’t Own Me,” at which point their raucous audience was on their feet cheering.” —The New York Times
The Janes have been bringing audiences to their feet with their gorgeous three-part harmonies, crisp musicianship, and warm, engaging stage presence for a really long time. Almost like sisters, Sula Haska, Christine Ranck, and Patti Wyss have been singing together for as long as they can remember. Why, they can practically harmonize in their sleep!
The Janes are currently fresh from their featured Guest-Artist engagement with the 70-piece New Haven Symphony orchestra, where they “lit up the stage, as an adoring crowd sat mesmerized by their silky smooth harmonies and superb musicianship.”
Collectively, The Janes represent many years of experience in show-business, its individual members having appeared on Broadway, Off-Broadway, in regional theaters and night clubs all over the world. Chris, Patti, and Sula traveled Europe and Iceland with the USO. They’ve sung with Barry Manilow, toured with country legend Eddy Arnold, backed up Grammy winner Mark Cohn, been the opening act for comedian Jackie Mason—and so many others. Accomplished recording artists, studio singers and musicians, all three have been heard together on familiar commercial jingles, movie soundtracks, and record albums.
The Janes perform their unique, harmony-rich sound in theaters, nightclubs, and regional corporate conferences in the US, in cabaret rooms in New York City, and at private parties and openings almost everywhere. In addition, The Janes are in a movie! Look for them as a featured act in a documentary film about performers, called “Underground Stories,” currently playing in regional film festivals.
All this wealth of experience together has enriched their relationships with each other and with their loyal audiences, and added immensely to the joy and privilege they feel about singing together.
The Janes are “one of the most inventive, sprightly and generally fun-filled cabaret acts around…they deliver their gorgeous harmonies with pizzazz and showmanship.”
