Her career began at the age of 7 when she was invited on stage with her father during his nightclub act. Gina says, “From then I was hooked. I knew what I wanted to do…SING!” With family friends like the Four Tops, Quincy Jones, Sammy Davis Jr., and Sarah Vaughan, Gina’s household was a constant source of inspiration and guidance. At age 13, Gina began extensive vocal training and music study. She was a student at Ira Lee’s Studio, Phil Moore’s, "For Singers Only" Workshop, and the Dick Grove School of Music. After witnessing Gina’s graduation performance, her father decided that Gina was ready for his “College Of The Road”. She joined her father in his show and traveled the world, sharing the stage with the likes of Count Basie, Sammy Davis Jr., and Bill Cosby. She also had the distinct pleasure of performing on The Tonight Show. REVIEW - “Eckstine, whose father was Billy Eckstine, has the spunk, the spirit and the soul of her family’s patriarch. At her best, she delivers a song with the same intense ability to tell a musical story.”– Don Heckman, The International Review of Music TICKET INF0: BUY individual tickets or SAVE on series tickets PER DINNER $75 ANY 3 DINNERS – SAVE $25 $200 ALL 6 DINNERS – SAVE $50** $400 *Price includes all tax/tip/show.
