by Victoria Ordin - Jun 28, 2016

A longtime member of the Grammy-nominated a cappella band, the Bobs, LA-based composer/vocalist Amy Engelhardt delivered a riotously funny hour of song at Don't Tell Mama on what she conceded was a ‚Äúshvitzy‚Ä̬†Sunday¬†in June (the 19th to be exact). Three o'clock¬†on Father's Day may not be the best slot for a gig, but the Berklee College of Music-trained musician (and 2011 MAC Dottie Burman Award-winner for songwriting) brought her signature wit and warmth to what felt as much like an intimate gathering in her living room as a formal cabaret performance. Engelhardt's show, My Own Devices, featured material from her first album, ‚ÄúNot Gonna Be Pretty,‚ÄĚ as well as material to appear on her upcoming second CD release.
