"Bringing my music of the 60's to audiences is my passion and pleasure."
Barbara Jean Baker
Barbara Jean Baker was fortunate to grow up in a household filled with music and singing. She learned early that music was her deepest passion. After a few years of tap dancing and piano lessons, then choir and drama class in high school, she formed a band called the “Chosen Few”. She knew then that music was the “rhythm of her soul.”
Moving to Florida in 1975 from Michigan, she found her way to the Sarasota Players Theatre as a cast member and then acting classes at the Asolo Theatre in Sarasota.
In January of 2013, she attended Unity Church in Sarasota and performed as a soloist, background vocalist, choir member and pianist until 2017.
As an accomplished songwriter, Barbara has copyrighted several songs, and hopes to soon finish a CD of her inspirational songs and instrumentals.
In 2017, Barbara joined the Legendary 60’s Girl Group “The Goodies” as a lead and background vocalist. Currently, they are in the studio working on their album of great songs, and also bringing back the hit singles fans are still asking to hear today.
Barbara’s motto is to be living her passion and desires of her heart by singing, performing and songwriting. She believes that “Music is a heart gift and should be shared with everyone.”
Contralto Tiffany Regal made her professional operatic debut in January 2002 as the Sorceress in Gotham Chamber Opera’s production of Dido & Aeneas. She later performed in three other productions with the company, including the US premiere of Martinu’s Les Larmes du Couteau as La Mère. Her singing has been praised in the New York Times for being, "…flamboyantly malevolent…" and "…as imposing as her name," and in New York Newsday for its “lurid gusto.”
After an opera career spanning 10 years and five countries, Tiffany shifted into singing jazz standards, R&B classics, and blues. That opened the door for several exciting opportunities, including singing backing vocals for a series of shows with hip-hop trio Deltron 3030, which culminated in a performance on Late Show with David Letterman in October, 2013.
She's thrilled to be a part of The Goodies, and can't believe her luck in performing with her mother and lead singer, Maryann, and with such a wonderful, collaborative colleague, Barbara.
