MONDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2014 - Andrea Marcovicci: "A WWII Christmas". A World War II Christmas, (an adaptation of I'll Be Seeing You... The Love Songs of WWII) originally created to celebrate Andrea's return home for the holidays, (after twenty-five years on the east coast!), wraps her most requested show in a special holiday glow. You'll hear WWII classics like We'll Meet Again, I'll Be Seeing You, Sentimental Journey, and seasonal favorites such as I'll Be Home for Christmas, White Christmas, and Baby, its Cold Outside." -The Wall Street Journal
MONDAY, JANUARY 5, 2015 - Mark Winkler & Cheryl Bentyne: "West Coast Cool". In 2010, jazz vocal specialists Cheryl Bentyne and Mark Winkler began a collaboration that resulted in a live show entitled West Coast Cool that they presented at different venues on the West Coast and beyond. Award winning, critically acclaimed jazz vocalist/ lyricist, Mark Winkler meets multi-Grammy winning vocalist, Cheryl Bentyne, to form a dynamic duo intent on how cool the "West Coast Cool Jazz' scene of the 50's still is. Cheryl Bentyne is best known as the soprano voice of the Janis Siegel, Tim Hauser and Alan Paul "The Manhattan Transfer."
MONDAY, JANUARY 26, 2015 - Iris Williams O.B.E, Order of British Empire "A Romantic Musical Journey". Iris Williams is all class and you owe it to yourself to see this great lady! Impeccable taste and elegant phrasing, a voice that suggests a cross between Marian Anderson and Nina Simone. Astonishing depths of passion that runs the gamut from playful to arty to dreamy. Make no mistake; she's a classy lady with a stylish approach to singing classic theater songs. In her company there is much pleasure to be shared by all. -Rex Reed, New York Observer
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2015 - Eric Comstock & Barbara Fasano: "This Thing Called Love: A New York Valentine". "Suave, smart, funny and utterly delightful... The aesthetic heir of Bobby Short ... Complementing Mr. Comstock's suppleness as a performer is an ingenious musical wit... Excellent taste in material, keen interpretive intelligence and a knack for storytelling ... An unusually insightful interpreter of lyrics...romantic eloquence... Meet the new fun couple on the cabaret block. Mr. Comstock and Ms. Fasano are turning the neighborhood into a hotbed of pleasure." -Stephen Holden, The New York Times
MONDAY, MARCH 9, 2015 - Joanne Tatham: "New York Soundtrack" Ms. Tatham is equally at home in the worlds of Jazz and the Great American Songbook. The Washington Post has hailed her "exceptionally beautiful voice... reminiscent of the pop balladeers of the late '50's and early '60's, but with a fine-drawn intensity and shimmering vibrato that are all her own," while Penthouse Magazine has urged: "If you get a chance to see Joanne Tatham perform live, get moving! She's something you won't want to miss.
MONDAY, MARCH 30, 2015 - Wesla Whitfield and Mike Greensill: "Sing For Your Supper: Best of the Great American Songbook": What a wonder is Wesla and never so much as when she's working with that big talented lug she married, the eloquent pianist/arranger Mike Greensill. And then there is the voice itself. It is, in the best ways, an unadorned instrument. There may be a slight vibrato here and there, but only for the most subtle emphasis at a key moment in a musical phrase. The rest of the time, it's clear, bell-like, unwavering. - David Wiegand, San Francisco Chronicle
