The Phenomenal Deseree Spinks performs at THE SAINT { NJ Rock Photographer }

Date: March 5, 2012.

I can’t get enough of Deseree Spinks. She’s an exciting mixture of funky rock ‘n roll soul.

Last night this amazing vocalist played at The Saint, one of Asbury Park, NJ’s hotspots. She sang some amazing originals, including  Fast Train, Love Game, Come and Get It, Nobody and Alibi along with some amazing covers such as Treat Me Right and Mama Don’t Like My Man. Everyone in the room shouted encore before she was about to walk off the stage, so she satisfied them with a Whitney Houston classic , Saving All My Love For You. She was spot on.


Her influences:
