Why not spend an evening being entertained by two of Tucson’s most talented artists? A dynamic duo - a perfect blend of hot jazz, sultry blues and cabaret. They take their act all over the world, performing at festivals, clubs and theatres but they call Tucson “home.” Their new CD, "Wild Women," celebrates 100 years of classic blues women. Diane is also a member of Lisa Otey and the Desert Divas. Lisa has been inducted into the Tucson Music Hall of Fame, the Arizona Blues Hall of Fame and appeared on the Grammy-nominated CD, "Ladies Man", by Pinetop Perkins. Lisa and Diane co-produced Lisa's 8th CD, "Trio", and Diane's debut CD, "I Never Knew," on Lisa's label, Owl's Nest Productions.
"Whenever these two artists perform together, people comment on their easy rapport and emotional connection. Otey's piano and vocals are hot and steamy. Van Deurzen sings sweetly. Together they blend like a musical cappuccino with extra foam on top." -Chuck Graham
