Chicago's preeminent rhythm and blues crooner, Bailey Dee delivers a big voice and even bigger personality to the stage. At a young age she found a beaten-up copy of the rock n roll handbook in a back alley of Chicago, tucked it in her guitar case, and has been mastering its contents ever since. Picture a Big Mama Thornton or a Sister Rosetta Tharpe, with the jump blues sounds of Wynonnie Harris behind her, and you have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Bailey Dee's Late Night Bait.
Screaming on a rocker in a way that would make Jay Hawkins proud, or coaxing tears from jaded audiences with a pining ballad, Bailey Dee covers the spectrum with ease. Part school girl, part vixen; all entertainment.A full band backs her featuring members of legendary R&B Chicagoan Andre Williams band and ex-Million Dollar Quartet.
Bailey and the boys can be found playing monthly at north side hot spot The High Hat Club every second Thursday, and can be found regularly playing all over Chicago every weekend.
Her northern soul/r&b and pre 60's rock repertoire is spot on, due to her extensive collection of vinyl which she DJs at legendary whiskey purveyor Delilahs every second Tuesday of the Month.
