A lot of smiling, a little theater and loads of music are part of the act of Cerulean Sounds with Nan-ciy and Flippin. The duo is set to perform Thursday at Two Roads Cafe.
Nancy Combs and Jay Flippin have been working together as a team since 2001. Combs has performed professionally since 1997, and has been in radio for 18 years. She teaches voice and in 2002 was first runner-up for the Ms. Kentucky Senior Citizen contest.
Flippin is retired from the faculty of Morehead State University. He is keyboardist, arranger and pop conductor for the Lexington Philharmonic. He also is an accompanist and arranger for the Lexington Singers.
Cerulean Sounds performs standards such as "My Funny Valentine" - to a Latin beat - and "As Time Goes By." They also perform blues and parodies as part of a "musical background," notes Combs.
