Lakewood Theatre Company Presents For One Night Only, The Musical Revue HERE WE GO AGAIN
JAN KOENIG and Lisa Knox present an evening of song in a one-night only production entitled HERE WE GO AGAIN! on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 7:00 PM. It's been four long years since their last standing room only show at Lakewood Side Door Cabaret.
HERE WE GO AGAIN! will feature songs that reflect the season as we head into fall, as well as familiar goodies that you can sing along to. Backed by a stellar trio of musicians, be ready to be entertained with a variety of music, stories, and laughs by these two longtime friends!
After "dabbling" in theater, Lisa Knox went on to have a career in the music business as a professional singer. Singing everything from Top 40 hits, rock, disco, swing, big band, jazz standards and country, she was able to make a living at music and raise three daughters along the way. She is now enjoying working in the theater once again, and just finished up a six week run of THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW at Lakewood Theater. She is one of the vocalists for PIN and the HORN-its Band which features a great horn section, classic blues, funk and R & B. Lisa will also sing with the Northwest Community Gospel Chorus for her 11th year in the GOSPEL CHRISTMAS concert at the Arlene Schnitzer concert Hall.
JAN KOENIG had the travel bug and spent time in Europe, eventually ending up in southern California for a number of years. She too "dabbled" in theater while living in Eugene and singing wherever she landed. It wasn't until coming back to Oregon that she started her own journey in the music scene, with much encouragement from Ron Steen! She now sings at many Portland jazz venues and draws a well deserved crowd every time.

DENNIS CAIAZZA is originally from Rochester, New York and brings an East Coast style and sense of humor to the bandstand. He did extensive graduate studies at the Eastman School of Music and has performed with his own band "Swing Factory" in the Southeast, as well as recording and playing with jazz greats Clark Terry, Eddie Daniels, Marian McPartland, Dave Frishberg and even Don Rickles! He sometimes delights us with his vocals, if we beg him enough, as it's not an easy thing to do!
RON STEEN, veteran drummer, bandleader and Mel Brown protégée, is one of the Northwest's top rhythm keepers and a leader of the Portland jazz scene. He has performed with a host of jazz artists such as Joe Henderson, Woody Shaw, Dexter Gordon, Eddie Harris, Sonny Stitt and Charles Lloyd among many others.
