FEINSTEIN'S/54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents Alla Ray in Coffee & Cake with Alla Ray on December 5th, 2019 at 9:30pm. Alla Ray is a New York based singer/songwriter whose singles several times reached the Top 10 in the UK charts. After performing with her Big Band for one night only to a sold out crowd at the legendary Friar's Club this past spring, Alla made her successful debut at The Cutting Room & now is excited to celebrate the release of her album at the 54 Below, in which she experiments with a sensual mix of Jazz & Pop, combining her love of classic standards with her refreshing originals, a few of which she wrote specially for a recent, limited run revival of Lyle Kessler's 1983 play, "Orphans", directed by Aaron Latham at the Bridge Theatre on the 54th & Broadway. The night, filled with mesmerizing sounds of the Billie Holiday & Ella Fitzgerald era, infused with Alla Ray's Great Gatsby vibes, will carry you away to the roaring times where rules & time didn't matter when the horns blew jazz right into your heart, awakening dreams of life beyond today.
