"Three solo jazz/cabaret artists ; three passionate women; three Latinas; and three individuals with a lot of heart and soul yearning to share the music of their Latin culture. Tres Divas is a labor of love that honors diversity, and the music of their families - boleros, cha cha, latin jazz and salsa music. In addition to performing as part of Tres Divas, each vocalist is pursuing her own individual music career."

Lorraina Marro - honored as a Jazz Living Legend in July of 2015. She was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, and has recorded two cds: You Must Believe in Spring and an all-original cd entitled Mixed Emotions in which she serves as lyricist on all of the songs. Lorraina has performed her own shows at The Metropolitan Room and Danny's Skylight Room in NY; and performed shows at multiple venues in L.A., including Upstairs at Vitello's, The Catalina Jazz Club, The House of Blues, The M Bar, The Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill, The Cinegrill, and The Gardenia Supper Club. She has also performed in Las Vegas for The Special Operations Warriors Foundation at the Four Seasons, The Aladdin, and The Las Vegas Hilton Hotels. Her shows encompass jazz, R&B, pop and songs of Broadway.

Mayita Dinos - By day Mayita designs gardens. When the sun falls below the Pacific horizon, she trades the computer for a microphone! In an homage to both worlds, her last concert was at the Arlington Gardens in Pasadena, a public garden she designed. She has also performed her own shows at The Gardenia Supper Club, The M Bar, Upstairs at Vitello’s and The World Stage. Mayita has a very eclectic repertoire that includes jazz, Latin, and every genre in between! The songs she curates for the Tres Divas concerts represent songs from her past, as well as songs that currently grab her heart.

Jackie Gibson – she has performed throughout Los Angeles, including Upstairs at Vitello’s, The M Bar, The Gardenia Supper Club, and The Catalina Jazz Club. Jackie is probably best known for her often performed “Songs at the Brill Building” a cabaret show which celebrates the best loved classics of the late 50s/early 60s. She is also in the process of recording the works of singer/songwriter Stephen Michael Schwartz, and the works of both Stephan Oberhoff and Country Music Hall of Famer Sharon Vaughn. Jackie is also preparing a show, in addition to writing a book, about her mother, Dr. Helia Israel Benavides Olivera MD, sharing her journey of being a Latina woman whose passion was medicine, and the struggles she faced to become a doctor in California. Jackie’s other passion is creating/producing fundraising events through her organization Jazz Del Corazon that assist fellow L.A. jazz artists in various life-altering states of need.
