2016 - Our 35th Anniversary!
THE LAST EVENING OF SONG
“Whine & Dine: Songs of Food and/or Kvetching”
Saturday, October 1 8:00pm
$17 door / $15 advance
Hosted by the ever-congenial Merle Kessler & intrepid musical director Joshua Brody, we present, what might prove to be, the final Evening of Song. 25 singers each choose a song to perform on the given theme “songs about food and/or kvetching.“
The result is a little bit Prairie Home Companion, a little American Idol, a little Gong Show, and a whole lot of something you've never heard before!
