“Ryan has come a long way from NYC, Branson and L.A. appearances.” said late, acclaimed jazz critic, producer and educator Dr. Herb Wong, “Ryan DeHues’ voice is one of a kind—a voice you cannot and will not ignore, and one you will want to hear again and again!”

Ryan DeHues is one of today’s new breed of great singers who give the old music new style with a modern flair and dynamic delivery. DeHues puts modal groove versions of Sublime into his act, right next to a Sinatra standard followed by a gem resurrected from the back pages of Susanne Vega. Ryan is the epitome of suave yet exciting new artists that are giving new meaning to The Great American Songbook and classic songs of yesterday.

His two jazz standard albums produced by Pat Boone can be heard on Pandora, Amazon and Spotify along with a June 9, 2023 release of Private Parlor (Bossa Vibes) with the French pop duo Double Francoise, distributed by Freaksville Records, Belgium.

Seven years ago, we (Cal & Whitney Stone – 2 Stones Events) came up with a new live music series – Kittens & Crooners – to celebrate the music and style of our country’s classic jazz singers like Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Lena Horne, Tony Bennett, and Rosemary Clooney. The four shows we held in 2016 at the Tipping Point Theater in Northville went over so well that we continued presenting live jazz at that venue until the pandemic put a halt to indoor concerts. (Don’t worry, we’ll be doing more shows at the Tipping Point.)

In early 2022, we revived Kittens & Crooners in another intimate venue that’s perfect for this type of performance — the lower level of Ciao Amici’s restaurant in downtown Brighton. We added a show to make this a full four-concert series with room to grow!
