Jenn Colella, Adriane Lenox & More Set for NOTHING BUT LOVE at Metropolitan Room, 2/9
An A-list group of Broadway performers will gather at Metropolitan Room in New York City in February to sing "Nothing But the Love - An Evening of Songs by Tina deVaron." This original song cycle is about "grownup love and everything that comes (and goes) with it." deVaron is an award-winning New York singer/songwriter who is known as a mainstay of piano jazz and special events in the city's toniest rooms. "Nothing But the Love," plays one show on February 9th at 7:00 pm at Metropolitan Room, 34 West 22nd Street (doors open at 6:15 pm). A cover charge of $22.50 and a two-beverage minimum per person apply. For reservations call 212.206.0440, or visit www.metropolitanroom.com.
The all-star talent lineup: Jenn Colella (If Then), Tony Nominee Liz Larsen (Beautiful), Tony Winner Adriane Lenox (Doubt), Drama Desk Award winner Kenita Miller (Working), Tony Award Nominee Nancy Opel (co-starring in Honeymoon in Vegas), and Broadway World Best Actor Winner, Sal Viviano (Closer Than Ever). deVaron's intention is to expose her music to a wider audience of performers, producers and music supervisors.
deVaron's prolific work finds fans in pop, folk, jazz, gospel and Broadway. In 2013, Perfect Mothers - her musical in development - was named one of NYMF 2013's "Ten Shows That Caught our Eye" by Broadway.com. She has just released her fourth CD, Tuckerman's Ravine, eight original songs simply produced on guitar and piano by her son, singer/songwriter Nick Lerangis. deVaron's previous recordings are Water Over Stones and If Mama Ain't Happy. Two songs recorded by other artists have reached the Top 100 on the Billboard Gospel (Adore You) and Dance charts (If I Close My Eyes). deVaron's music has been heard on the MTV Reality show "Teen Moms."
For a decade, New Yorkers and tourists alike have flocked to enjoy deVaron's holiday entertainment perennial, "Madeline's Tea," which just sold out its tenth winter season at Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle. Her family jazz brunch at Langham Place, "Tunes with Tina," just wrapped its fourth sold-out season. deVaron is a familiar face to visitors who frequented Peacock Alley at the Waldorf in years past, where she held court playing Cole Porter's piano at one of the world's favorite watering holes, and where she once sang a duet with Frank Sinatra.
