The 2013 SAC Awards, a night of recognition for "The Art of Cabaret" and the community of supporters that proffer it in San Diego, is being held on Monday, January 27th at The Comedy Store La Jolla from 7pm to 10:30pm. The 2013 SAC Awards is one of San Diego's most prominent events for the Arts in San Diego for 2014.

This cornerstone initiative is sponsored by the San Diego Association for Cabaret Clubs, (SDACC), a newly founded Association whose mission is to support, recognize and advocate on behalf of the art and business of live entertainment, specifically Cabaret.

SDACC Founder and Producer of The 2013 SAC Awards, Tim Moore, will be appearing on a Podcast hosted by Producer/Director Clifford Bell, a thirty year veteran of the Los Angeles nightclub scene on Monday, January 20th at 1:50pm. Appearing with Mr. Moore will be Ray Jessel. Mr. Jessel, an adamant supporter of cabaret, is known for his work on The Love Boat (1977), The Carol Burnett Show (1967) and The Smothers Brothers Show (1975). He's also been quoted by Michael Feinstein as having written what might be considered the most beautiful song ever written, Whatever Happened To Melody.

Music industry luminaries from San Diego, and the surrounding communities of Los Angeles and Palm Springs will be in attendance to kick-off a drive to increase visibility and viability of this wonderfully entertaining performance art along San Diego's entertainment landscape.

Producers, directors, musical directors, promoters, reviewers, clubs and club owners will be joined by world-class performers at the event. The collection of honorees and attendees represent the very best in their respective business disciplines, and feature some wildly accomplished performance artists.

Martinis Above Fourth, San Diego's most prominent cabaret club, leads the hometown charge. A few other local luminaries in attendance will include local Promoter, Sher Krieger; Cabaret Director, Loren Salter; SDTheaterReviews Editor, Rob Appel; and San Diego's own Leading Actress, Voice and Acting Coach and Cabaret Diva, Leigh Scarritt. From Palm Springs, heavyweight Promoter, Les Michaels and Cabaret Artists Francesca Amari and Jerome Elliott will be recognized for their contributions to our own hometown cabaret scene. And from Los Angeles, high-profile producer, Clifford Bell will attend with performers Ray Jessel, Robyn Spangler, and Keri Kelsey. To round out the LA delegation, Les Traub, President of Cabaret West and LA reviewer; and Elliot Zweibach, Cabaret Reviewer, will join in to be recognized for their collective influence on the shaping of San Diego's cabaret scene.

The 2013 SAC Awards will be as entertaining as they'll be informative. Honorees and the impressive slate of speakers/presenters will be complimented by an array of compelling and intimate cabaret-style performances from a mix of star-studded professionals and accomplished amateurs.

Come share the enthusiasm and support SDACC in this cornerstone initiative, The 2013 SAC Awards, to bridge the entertainment chasm and take center stage on San Diego's entertainment landscape. Tickets for the general public are only $15 or 2 for $20.
