The Green Room 42 Swings Sinatra @ Green Room 42, 2/21/20

A tribute to Ol’ Blue Eyes, produced and hosted by renowned Sinatra expert Will Friedwald and performer Andrew Poretz, combined vocal artistry and the cream of the American Songbook in one of those “only in New York” evenings that, for one beautiful hour, seems to justify preposterous rent and sardine-like commutes.

Regina Zona @ The Triad, 12/8/19

In her regal cabaret debut, “Becoming … The Queen 2.0,” opera (and now cabaret) diva Regina Zona ruled the stage and conquered the hearts of her audience.  This was the most splendid debut show I have ever had the privilege of attending: confident, sparkling, personal, and a triumph from start to finish.

Deborah Stone @ Pangea 9/30/19

What does a triple threat do when her professional dancing days are over?  In Deborah Stone’s case, she creates a love-letter of a show to the dancer that she was, highlighting her graceful acting skills and her resonant, clarinet-like mix.

Daniel Cainer @ Urban Stages 6/29/19

British import Daniel Cainer’s one-man show, “Gefilte Fish & Chips,” drew a capactiy crowd to Urban Stages to revel in the humor and humanity of his stories-in-song about four generations of his Jewish family in England.  As well as performing the show, Cainer wrote and composed it, and functioned as his own one-man tech crew and orchestra.

Rev. Mary and Her All-Man Band @ Pangea 4/6/19

Rev. Mary is an edgy, rollicking, big-voiced entertainer who has made a specialty of mining the 20th century songbook for tunes about the taboo.  In “I’m SOOO High!: Rev. Mary’s Reefer Revue,” the Rev. (Mary Elizabeth Micari in real life) and her All-Man Band revived obscure blues numbers celebrating jazz cabbage—you know, jive? Catnip? Tea?  Mary Jane?—with raucous good humor.

Cabaret Hotspot

This cabaret legend is doing it right. She’s been live streaming performances from her home with great success. Watch how it’s done, then you can do it too.I don’t know about you but once the pandemic began I started cleaning...my closets...my mind...and eventually my vault of music.

You wouldn’t believe the things I found gathering dust in the vault. Songs I haven’t sung in decades, all the way through to what I thought was lost to history. Songs like Make Someone Happy and my 1973 single for Epic records, Our Day Will Come.

So many memories. So many stories.

Join me on Zoom as I reminisce on these found treasures: the music, the stories, and the lessons learned with the hindsight of a lifetime in entertainment.

The debut performance is Saturday, October 3 @ 4pm PT / 7PM ET. As usual, a limited number of after show meet and greets will be available.

For those of you in the UK (or who just want to watch again), we will replay the performance on Sunday, October 4 @ Noon PT / 8PM BST.

Can’t wait to see you all again!
