Bio

“Sultry but mellow” are a few words that come to mind when you hear the voice of vintage songstress Raena Ophelia Simmons. She’s alluring and is evocative of a lounge jazz singer from the 1940’s. Described to contrast between velvet tones to dulcet tones, she’s been compared to the likes of Billie Holiday, Julie London and Peggy Lee.

Raena's band consists of the finest professionally trained local talent in Perth. Band personnel can range from duo to quintet (and everything in between) to provide you with various band/instrument combinations to best suit your event.
The most frequent booking is for the Ophelia Cocktail Jazz Trio. Consisting of vocals, piano and bass, the Ophelia Cocktail Jazz Trio provides that finishing touch of elegance to your ornate celebration. If you are looking to book for a more intimate performance then the Ophelia Jazz Duo is a perfect choice.

Please contact Raena for more information of different band set-ups and pricing.

Raena has been performing professionally for 9 years at Jazz and Swing music events across Perth. She has performed at an assortment of venues and soirées including: the Ellington Jazz Club, Jazz Fremantle, a two-year residency at the Swallow Bar, a handful of premier screenings for Event Innaloo Cinema, opening for internationally acclaimed Studiocanal’s premier screening of The Chaperone, the Sunday Music Series at Postal Hall, Martini Jazz Club nights at Como the Treasury Bar and Lounge and at Miss Lady Lace's Boudoir Burlesque shows and 2017 Pinup Prom.

While studying her Jazz Honours Degree at the prestigious Western Australia Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) Raena has had the opportunity to perform alongside magnificent Australian artists including Vince Jones, Rai Thistlethwayte (Thirsty Merc), Kristen Beradi and Gian Slater.

Gracing the stages of events throughout Perth, Raena is available for all corporate events, weddings and private events. Performing a variety of smooth and bluesy tunes, rhythmically vibrant Bossa Nova (sung in the traditional Portuguese language), reinvented pop classics to swinging jazz standards, Raena performs with a nostalgic elegance and class.
