The Footlighters Club was ground zero for Comedy yesterday as Freddie Roman, Dick Capri, Scott Record and Rick Corso celebrated one of their peers, the acclaimed entertainer Sarge who is one of the most admired improvisational comedians, singer and musical piano savant in show business. President and producer of the event Errol Dante started off the afternoon with his stirring rendition of Granada but then it was all laughs as the jokes flew wild and feverishly and there were probably more laughs at the Miami Shores Country Club per square inch than any other place on the planet. The humor heard at the Footlighters event must out of political necessity stay inside the Footlighters but rest assured no one was left unscathed. (more...)

Musical wish list: Liza Minelli, Executive Producer, Tedd Firth, Musical Director, The Kravis Center Pops Orchestra Big Band, and Michael Feinstein singing the songs made famous by Frank Sinatra. It happened last night in the Dreyfoos Concert Hall at The Kravis Center in West Palm Beach. Michael Feinstein, Ambassador of the Great American Songbook, has built a dazzling career over the last three decades bringing the music of the Great American Songbook to the world and he expertly and nostalgically brought the music of the 'chairman of the board to an audience that remembers it well at The Kravis Center. The Kravis Big Band filled the hall with Tedd Firth arrangements and Michael wowed the audience with his performance, which included Michael at the piano with the Kravis Center Big Band. In true Mr. Sinatra fashion, Mr. Feinstein and crew were on a Jet to NYC as the folks were leaving the parking lot, to hook up with Liza Minelli for some musical adventures in the Big Apple.

It's usually the vocalists who garner the most enthusiasm and devotion from the music loving public.  The human voice and a singer's personality are able to convey emotion and musicality in a very distinct way.  Then there is the the charisma and trumpet of Chris Botti to challenge that hypothesis.  Chris Botti has become the largest-selling American instrumental artist because of his artistry and ability to electrify an audience with his music and his gracious and elegant personality.  Early on in his concert last night Botti referred to The Kravis Center as Carnegie Hall South. With music programming like this in West Palm Beach he might have to greet a New York City audience at the legendary Concert Hall on 57th street by saying welcome to the Kravis Center North!

There is an historic house in Key West, La Terraza De Marti, which was the home of cigar manufacturer Teodoro Perez who was a symbol of Key West's strong ties to Cuba. On May 3, 1883 Perez welcomed Jose Marti, the man who was the symbol of Cuba's bid for independence from Spain to speak from his 2nd story balcony to thousands of Cuban sympathizers. Marti was an integral factor in freeing Cuba from Spanish rule. (more...)

Wearing a suit that seemed to be inspired by the celebrated decor of Feinstein's/54 Below, Tony Award nominee and two-time MAC Award winner Charles Busch returned to the club last night with a new show that gets to the essence of this legendary theatrical figure. The Actor/playwright/cabaret entertainer, with an eclectic songbook from the 70's and early 80's unfolded an outrageously comic yet also poignant tale of his early years as he strived to find a place for himself. Charles has found a place for himself and he is a living legend and a very theatrical New York audience filled Feinstein's/54 Below to hear his wit and music. (more...)

Put together two super actor/singers to perform The Songs Of Kander & Ebb and it's like Mantle and Maris hitting back to back homers in the world series. Oops, I promised myself I would avoid the Baseball references, however watching Haley Swindal you cannot help but wonder how this enormously talented lady became such an exciting entertainer coming from a sports/business family. Then again, George Steinbrenner did create exciting entertainment for millions with the Yankee franchise and he was also an avid fan and investor in Broadway shows. (more...)
