SUE MATSUKI CELEBRATES HER 33rd YEAR OF PERFORMING AT URBAN STAGES’ WINTER RHYTHMS in HOW’S THAT FOR OPENERS? (A Show of Opening Numbers!)
THIS WILL BE THE LAST TIME THIS SHOW IS PERFORMED
Thursday, December 19th @ 7:00 pm
Don’t Tell Mama
On September 16th Ms. Matsuki celebrated her actual anniversary of singing at Don’t Tell Mama in 2 SOLD OUT sets.
Ms. Matsuki has written a show composed entirely of many of her opening numbers (hence the show title) BUT, the show is not about Opening Numbers. It is a look back at some of the stories of being on stage at Don’t Tell Mama. Please join us for what promises to be an amazing evening of stories and songs.
Featuring her incredible band led by Gregory Toroian with Tom Hubbard on Bass & Ron Tierno on Drums. – Directed by Lina Koutrakos
To read a review on this show:
What three of Sue’s mentors have said:
“Sue Simply Cares! With her great singing ability, Sue presents pertinent material, entertainment and fun to her audiences. It’s her caring way to honor her music and to honor those who care to spend an evening with her.” – Marilyn Maye, Singing Legend
“Sue Matsuki is one of my favorite singers because she has a great voice, she’s funny, she chooses great material, she enunciates all her words and she is always focused on giving her audience the very best time. It’s her job and she takes it very seriously!” – Julie Wilson, Grand Dame of Cabaret
“Matsuki is quite definitely a cross-over Cabaret/Jazz performer with an interesting polyglot style and presence all her own. Sue has chops to compare with the “pure jazz” ladies and yet she reaches her audience with her warmth and understanding, both musically and lyrically, of the songs she chooses. If you have not already picked up on this popular singer, watch for news of upcoming gigs. You, too, can become a fan!” – Jan Wallman, Nightlife Exchange
