Melissa Lee Zenker, The Wizard, and Winnie The Pooh Are All Coming to STP!

In 2013, Melissa Lee Zenker graduated from Sault Area High School. Since then, she moved to Nashville to pursue her dreams of singing country songs for people like you and me to enjoy. She’s returning to her roots to share her talents with us by performing at The Soo Theatre Project on Thursday, July 6 at 7 pm!

Tickets are $15 in advance (at Moloney’s Alley Irish Pub on Portage Street or at The Soo Theatre Project’s office on Ashmun) or $20 at the door. This is another concert as part of the Raise The Roof Concert Series. “Sip and Support The Heartbeat of Downtown!”

Here’s what Melissa has been up to from

“Having been on tour with Confederate Railroad for the last year, Melissa Lee is an up-and-coming Nashville Country music artist to look out for. She kicked off 2016 with 3 sold out shows at Kewadin Casino in Sault Ste. Marie, MI as the only female artist in a “tribute to the Grand Ole Opry” show, and finished out the year performing onstage with Charlie Daniels at the Dallas Bull in Tampa, FL. She has opened for many national acts such as 2015 ACM New Artist of the Year winner Cole Swindell, Tyler Farr, The Kentucky Headhunters, and Confederate Railroad, and has shared the stage with artists such as Buddy Jewell and Jeff Carson. Melissa performed over 200 shows in 2015, and toured the country with “Girls With Guitars” in 2013-2014.”

It’s obvious that Melissa Lee is doing well. Read these positive reviews:

“… Her recent studio effort, “Here To Get My Stuff” is a collection of songs with a truly diverse vibe. This album is particularly special, because it truly has something for everyone: from the sassy energy of “Here To Get My Stuff” to the emotional depth of “Willow Tree” Melissa is an accomplished songwriter and performer with a passion for beautiful melodies, and the ability to share stories and feelings through her lyrics.”
