Songs from the Soul featuring Yesenia McNett
Yesenia McNett is a singer and actor from New Braunfels who has been performing on stages across Texas for over twenty-five years. Yesenia sings with her San Antonio area bands “The Groove Doctors” and “Rock N Soul,” and from Austin to Houston with “The Time Warps” and “The Brass Tax.” She performs regular musical tributes to Linda Ronstadt and country legend Patsy Cline nationally. Her vocal blend of musical theater, jazz, pop, classic country and Latin music make her a versatile performer. Yesenia has been on Palace stages several times as Patsy Cline and has performed tributes to the great music of Johnny & June Carter Cash, Heart, Grand Funk Railroad, and Aretha Franklin. An ’04 graduate of Southwestern University, she is always happy to return to her beloved Georgetown.
Yesenia is the choral director and pianist for the Unitarian Universalist church of New Braunfels, a member of Actor’s Equity, and teaches voice and piano. She has been fortunate to perform in Europe, Mexico and Chile, and can’t wait to see where her career continues to take her. www.yeseniamcnett.com featuring Jamie Hilboldt on keyboards (Gary Puckett and the Union Gap, Archie Bell and the Drells, The Funk Brothers), Lannie Hilboldt on bass (The Drifters, The Chiffons, The Vogues) and Kevin Hall on drums (Hal Ketchum, Archie Bell and the Drells, Omar and the Howlers).
