    Eboni gave me chills! Wonderful hearing the original Nelson Riddle and Billy May charts too. Mighty Mo Combo rocks.

    Ella takes you back to the big band era in style. Great show!

    Eboni has a tremendous voice, you think Ella is still alive! Great backing from the band too. My complaint is that there are only two performances at the Fringe, there should be more………….Eboni also does a great job talking about Ella between the songs. I would have liked them to have performed my favorite song of Ella’s; Manhattan, but no matter. Do not miss this show!

    The Mighty Mo Combo continues to shine in the variety and artistry of their performances. This focus on Ella was awesome. Eboni Fondren presents an awesome performance that Ella would praise. With several good performances at this venue, this is my selection for Best of the Fringe. If Ella is selected, I will go to view it again.

    I loved this show. Eboni Fondren was wonderful and the Mighty Mo Combo supported her well. There was time for an encore. I was sorry one had not been prepared.
