Photo Flash: Clint Holmes, Matt Leisy, et al. at CAST PARTY!
Last night, Jim Caruso's Cast Party was once again packed with extraordinary talent from all segments of the entertainment scene! Ukulele sensation Jake Shimabukuro dazzled the audience after his in-store appearance in The Apple Store, Birdland regular Gabrielle Stravelli and legendary jazzer Lodi Carr both offered swinging tunes, Giles Terera (from the West End's Avenue Q and The Rat Pack: Live At The Sands) sang from the heart, and theater composer Micah Young debuted a new song performed by singers Matt Leisy and Whitney Basher, both currently in The Fantastiks off-Broadway.
Tapper-extraordinaire Andrew Nemr stopped the show with his Gregory Hines-inspired footwork, and singer Clint Holmes - along with his musical director Jeff Neiman - showed why the reviews for their current show at The Café Carlyle have been stellar! The Cast Party Symphony Orchestra, which included Tedd Firth on piano, Steve Doyle on bass, and Daniel Glass on drums, provided solid, brilliant accompaniment for all the participants!
Jim Caruso's Cast Party takes place every Monday night at Birdland (315 West 44 Street, NYC), starting at 9:30pm. Check out photos from the event below!
