Satin Alley Jazz is a mixed vocal ensemble of 6-10 singers performing choral jazz from the 30's, 40's, 50's and beyond!  A unique entertainment experience, under the direction of Don Brainerd, Satin Alley transports you to an era when swing was king and dance was an art form.

Satin Alley Jazz was formed in the fall of 2008, as the first performing group of Brainerd Performing Arts, founded by Susan and Don Brainerd.  Based in Roswell, GA, the group has performed throughout the Atlanta area.  Since 2010, Satin Alley has appeared at the Southeastern Flower Show, the Roswell Arts Festival, the Roswell Colors Festival, Canton Riverfest and during Alive After Five at the Roswell Historic Cottage and provided all of the entertainment for the Valentine's Day dance at Unity North Atlanta Church in Cobb County.  Most recently, Satin Alley performed as part of two different concert series promoted by Atlanta Plays It Forward. The first as part of the TGIF series at Chukkar Farms Polo Club and the second as part of the Rhythms on the River concert series at Chattahoochee Nature Center. Satin Alley was also please to be the featured entertainment for the May Alive At the Square.

Satin Alley is revamping! Check back for the announcement of our return to the scene!
