Sue Palmer, widely known internationally as "The Queen of Boogie Woogie," has been a staple of San Diego's blues, swing, and jazz scenes for over 30 years.

Best known for her beehive-wearing stint with blues diva Candye Kane in the '90's, Sue has been making her mark in the last decade with her high energy band, the Motel Swing Orchestra, and her flashy boogie woogie stylings.

Wearing a couple of pounds of big cocktail rings on each hand, she wails through a very complete blues keyboard vocabulary like the veteran she is.

She has performed with many of the legends of the boogie genre, playing double piano with Marcia Ball, Hadda Brooks, Sonny Leyland, Steve Lucky, Jeannie Cheatham, Ricky Nye and more.

Sue has been honored by the city of San Diego for her cultural contributions by having a day named after her, March 25th, 2008.

This program is funded in part by the City of Carlsbad’s Cultural Arts Office.
