Jeans ‘n Classics
Jean Meilleur, lead vocals
Celebrate the legacy of rock icon David Bowie! The Jeans ‘n Classics band returns to the Symphony stage for an evening honoring Bowie’s life, including such classics as “Space Oddity,” “Let’s Dance,” “Modern Love,” and more!
Peter Brennan’s Jeans ’n Classics is a winner! For almost 20 years the JnC approach to combining world class rock musicians and symphonies has been a game changer for orchestras in their quest to attract new and more expansive audiences.
Jean Meilleur has been a headliner with Jeans ’n Classics for over 20 years. In that time he has performed with scores of major North American orchestras, lending his distinctive voice to some of the greatest popular music of our time.
Originally from Madison WI, Jean was born and remains a Green Bay Packer fanatic! He moved to Detroit MI at a young age. Living in the Motor City helped shape his penchant for the Motown, Soul and R&B sounds of the early ’70s.
