Renee is a classically trained vocalist that has always has a love for jazz. A native of the Boston/Worcester area and daughter of talented jazz vocalist Jim Porcella, Renee was brought up listening to the music of the Great American Songbook. Interpreting the irreplaceable lyrics and improvising on these familiar melodies is something that is second nature to her.  

"Renee Legendre is a GIANT cut above your average entertainer. She is a pro; polished, engaging, smooth, utterly professional and has a voice that'll knock your socks off. Not one sour note in the bunch! Every song was spot on and her selection was met with rave reviews from our audience. I've been booking musicians for over 20 years and have learned to be enormously selective over whom I hire for the upscale population I serve. Renee is without a doubt one of my preferred performers. Bring her in and YOU look like a star!"

Pamela has been a prolific and consistent presence in American jazz as a pianist and composer.   She has received national and international critical acclaim for edgy instrumental compositions that contribute to the jazz history and art of the trio, quartet and quintet and for jazz originals for vocalists that are more at home in the American Songbook.  Additionally, she has been the host/pianist for Live Jazz New England on NPR affiliate 90.5- WICN since 2012.  

Dan McClenaghan says in All About Jazz, February, 2013,"...Hines has been busy on the jazz scene for fifteen years, producing many excellent CDs featuring her quartets and quintets, as well as pairings with several top-notch vocalists. A first-rate composer of engaging and memorable tunes.”
